Not true, State Law rules. There are many examples where state laws override federal laws. Gun control is one of those examples. A lot of state laws on gun control have more stringent regulations than the federal laws. For example NY and CA both have the most restrictive laws and many supersede the federal gun licensing. Utah has no gun control laws at all.

This may help Kevin:

"The Constitution and federal law are the supreme law of the land, thus preempting conflicting state and territorial laws in the fifty US State. However, the scope of federal preemption is limited, because the scope of federal power is itself rather limited.

Indeed, states may grant their citizens broader rights than the federal Constitution as long as they do not infringe on any federal constitutional rights. Thus, most U.S. law (especially the actual "living law" of contract, tort, property, criminal and family law experienced by the majority of citizens on a day-to-day basis) consists primarily of state law, which can and does vary greatly from one state to the next."

Now, think about the struggle for civil rights in the South....federal law prevailed.

We will see how this works going forward. Several states have declared sovereignty. This makes them exempt from federal laws. Kind of like Indian Reservations are sovereign nations. The Indians are exempt from paying taxes to federal government or State. They have their own police and legal system.

I personally wouldn't mind if quite a few states left the union....many are an embarrassment to the rest of us.

Most of the states that want to cut free get more tax dollars back than tax dollars paid to the Feds anyway....I say good riddance.
