    Congress has no authority under the U.S. Constitution whatsoever to even control or ban the use of drugs, except between state lines. Come to think of it, Congress doesn't have any authority to ban or control guns, except to regulate them between state lines.

    Come to think of it, almost everything Congress does is prohibited under the U.S. Constitution.

    Very true i said the same thing in another thread on this same topic http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum55/40636-5.htmlif congress wants to regulate such things it needs to do so by amending the constitution not ignoring it.

    Amen, brotha! Congress seems to want to take unconstitutional action as of late! Well, maybe not ONLY as of late...

    What happens when Congress passes unconstitutional laws is what needs to change in my opinion. Why is passing a blatantly unconstitutional law not treated as treason? Seems like it should be to me, they have specific delineated powers, there needs to be some accountability for ignoring the scope of these powers beyond maybe not being re-elected. They should treat congressmen who pass blatantly unconstitutional laws as traitors to the republic.

    Does anyone know the specific law that would prevent this person from merely possessing a firearm, or receiving one from another person?
