If that's the case, then why is it I cannot buy a handgun in NY State even though I have zero criminal history, age 46 and have no mental instability, BUT, I can go to another state and buy one off the street? Last I checked the 2nd amendment was in the Constitution, however, the states do indeed get to decide how they procure my "rights" under the USC.
Seems a tad inconsistent, no? This decision outlined the concept of "laboratories" in it's ruling, and rightfully so. Sutton actually double dog dared the USSC to overturn him, by shoving the history and precedent of constitutional authority in their faces.
