Sen. Leahy says state marijuana laws 'should be respected'; what about gun laws?

Gun rights advocates and marijuana reform activists are not commonly regarded as natural allies, but in this case, they are fighting the same battle--the battle against a federal government that has usurped power to regulate things over which it has no legitimate authority. Hang together . . . [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

The federal authorities want to use the "interstate commerce" clause to expand their jurisdiction. Their definition of "interstate commerce" is anything that ever crossed a state line. A thief steals a car in Florida, and it's a federal case, because the car was manufactured in Michigan. A mugger in Atlanta uses a (stolen) handgun, and it's federal case, because the gun was made in Connecticut. Soon, there will no longer be any such thing as state or local jurisdictions.

There's a very good article at Lew Rockwell arguing persuasively that the interstate commerce clause has been abused even much more than most of us "Tenthers" have argued.
