    Apparently not far enough outside Emperor Daley's
    To quote Justice Thomas in his dissent:
    Apply to reloading, by changing marijuana to ammunition .
    Apply to homebrewing, by substituting "beer" or "wine" instead.

    I don't see a difference. The only question is how long said activities will remain legal...

    Yes, it would appear your PB&J, that you made from scratch, is subject to regulation by congress. What did you do about it today?

    Publius is correct. Reloading would certainly fall prey to the same stretch of logic, (a) because the components used in reloading probably come from other states, and (b) because by reloading locally you "affect" interstate commerce by NOT buying a product from another state.

    We NEED the ability for the People to recall Supreme Court justices. This ruling is just possibly the most horrendous, egregious example of overstepping the Constitution I've yet seen them produce.

    There goes my Liberty Garden.

    Hard to imagine Madison, or even Hamilton supporting Soviet-style central planning.

    but more to the point, it's not hard to imagine Bush/cheney/scalia supporting Soviet-style central planning.

    Uh, that is regulated by congress, a fact I am none too pleased about. I can only brew 100 gallons per adult member of my household.

    What is New London challanging? I must have missed that one while I was dismantling my woodshop so as not to affect interstate commerce.

    EDIT: didn't see the link

    BeerSlurpy,

    You wouldn't happen to know the regs on distillation for personal comsumption would you. I'm under the impression you can't distill without a license even for personal use, but then folks think you need a permit to own firearms so I may be wrong.
