Medical marijuana and guns: The Obama administration's split personality on state sovereignty

The federal government is, presumably, planning to contest this lawsuit, and the BATFE has declared its intention to enforce the federal laws, regardless of their inapplicability under the new state laws. Is it just me, or does that sound an awful lot like using federal resources "to circumvent state laws"?

I thought this administration had just made up its mind to not do that, and that's without even getting into the Obama campaign position that "what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne."

Whatever one's position on drug laws, if state law trumps federal law (in the absence of any "interstate commerce" interests) regarding marijuana, how can it not do so when the subject is intrastate commerce in guns? [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Hope you find it worth your time.
