    So, SCOTUS ruled that Federal government can’t tell states what to do, saying “Congress cannot issue direct orders to state legislatures.”

    How long before some state is going to run with that idea over any kind of “states rights” for more gun restrictions?

    The limits on a State's power to choose its own crime control measures come from the Bill of Rights, not federal statutes.

    The 2nd Amendment, 4th Amd, etc, are the supreme law of the land.

    There are quite a few states (and cities) that have already thumbed their noses at you.

    I don't care one bit about gsmblig, but I'm glad to see the NFL and NCAA brought down a notch.
