The Push To Ease Arizona Gun Laws

From the Arizona Republic: "Two bills, one to allow concealed weapons without a permit and the other to exempt guns made and kept in the state from federal regulation, each has more than a dozen legislators backing them. If passed, Arizona would be only the third state in the nation to allow either of the looser restrictions"

Personally I believe the Constitution says we have the right to keep and bear arms. Period. I agree that having people take firearm safety classes is a good idea, and proficiency demonstration is also a good idea. But the idea of paying a fee for the right to carry concealed bothers the Constitutionalist inside me.

If the Gun is manufactured and sold in the state of Arizona, the Fed's have NO RIGHT in the Constitution to regulate or legislate them. The idea of the "interstate commerce" clause being able to be used for anything Congress feels like infuriates me. This is another example of Federal overreaching. The interstate commerce clause was intended only to regulate interstate commerce.
