    Normally, I would defer to the State, but as I had said, this is a right that in my opinion, and it should be everyone elses (hence the bias) that your right to defend you and yours does not fall under the purview of ANY governmental body or institution. It is a law I seek to make Federal that would remind the government of all levels that fact.
    So you didn't really want a poll, you wanted only to preach your views. Got it.

    Sure I do - and it should have been obvious to me by the way you worded the "poll".

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    As the right to arms is specifically enumerated, local districts have no more authority to regulate than they do the right to speech, religion, or due process. Likewise, States have no authority to regulate arms either. Only the federal government has the authority to pass and enforce any arms law. What laws are passed have to comply with Strict Scrutiny standard. This is not unique to firearms. This applies to your local knife laws as well. A city's "legal blade length" is as unconstitutional as another city's 'assault weapon' ban.

    In short, only a bare minimum of any kind of Federal gun law is valid. All non-essential Federal gun laws are baseless. All state and city gun laws of every kind, without exception, are invalid.

    Looks like there are some exceptions.
    This really doesn't apply to the castle law, but in the sentiment that it is the constitution that gives us the right to have firearms, I think such laws could be accepted and not encroach on the 10th.

    Being on conservative leaning libertarian, I do prefer States Rights, as the 10th amendment is meant for. However, the right to bear arms is the 2nd amendment. Now in article 4, we have the Full Faith and Credit Clause. I think in this case, it is proper to have a national law allowing people granted a conceal permit to use it in all other states for example. I also believe states like Texas with a no open carry law are in violation of the constitution.

    Whatever.

    That's all that I have to say.

    Have a nice day.
