    It probably won't get far, but it'll be worth it just to hear Pelosi whine about States' rights again.

    You really think Obama would veto in an election year with a majority of states supporting it? Missed by 2 votes in 2009.

    I don't see how the Congress can generally invalidate state concealed carry bans - only the states possess the general police powers, not the Congress. If one accepts the proposition that Congress can invalidate state criminal laws, then you must accept the prioposition that the Congress can impose general criminal laws across the United States, e.g., a heath insurance mandate, or a ban on concealed carry in every state.

    I wouldn't subscribe to either, but Health insurance is a different application in how it is being described as illegal and they pretty much have a ban in every state with the school zone law....don't they?
    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory nor defeat....Teddy Roosevelt
