    And what would be the point of that?

    You seem to be trying to get at something, get on with it. I'm not playing this little game all day.

    Exactly. I agree. There is no clause in the constitution that gives congress the power to enact any law restricting what the people of the several states may possess.

    And that's it. The end. End of "game". I win.

    There isn't. the use of the commerce clause as a foundation for federal gun control, is one of the most dishonest and unconstitutional frauds ever perpetrated by the federal government. Sadly, 20 years of uninterrupted Democratic Party appointments to every federal court resulted in this disgusting stain on our jurisprudential fabric becoming ingrained and by the time the GOP was able to get some semblance of judicial balance, timid "conservative judges" realized that rolling back the FDR nonsense would result in eliminating many institutions that people had become addicted to-such as Social security.

    One of Scalia's most prominent clerks-Professor Steven G. Calabresi (Northwestern) noted in a lecture to the University of Cincinnati Law School just prior to the USSC decision on the ACA-that his former boss absolutely refused to expand the commerce clause (which is the reason for Scalia's scathing dissent in that case) but he also was loathe to overturn laws he KNEW were unconstitutional, when the public had become reliant upon them.
