    In unrelated news...

    Here's the story: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2011/...ag=re1.channel

    (AP) GRANTS PASS, Ore. The Oregon Supreme Court unanimously ruled Thursday that a retired school bus driver can have her medical marijuana and a concealed handgun, too.

    "We hold that the Federal Gun Control Act does not pre-empt the state's concealed handgun licensing statute and, therefore, the sheriffs must issue (or renew) the requested licenses," Chief Justice Paul De Muniz wrote in the ruling issued in Salem.

    I know that several people are interested in this topic so I posted it here.

    But for me, I'm curious to see how that Federal Gun Control Act does not pre-empt... What does this ruling do for the states who have told the feds "making guns here to be sold here does not fall under commerce clause..." arguement?

    Or what pro-gun federal laws pre-empt restrictive states.
