    Justice Marshall's conceptualization of the so-called "Supremacy Clause" is the rotting spawn of today's overreaching Federal government.

    "So called"???

    Article VI, Section 2:
    Says right there that federal law is the supreme law of the land, state laws notwithstanding.

    Since we are going down this road...

    You can argue that the laws proposed by Obama, along with many already in place, do not meet the "in pursuance of" stipulation of this statement as they are in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment of the same constitution. Therefore, the states are not only allowed, but I would say obligated to refute them.

    Sure, you can argue that all you want. But until a court finds a federal law to be unconstitutional, it's still the law, and still superior to state law.

    The propose Wyoming law is being discussed here. They all present similar threshold issues, and there's no reason to have multiple threads on the subject.

    Closed.
