Can a state make any regulation concerning firearms? Nope. Each agreed to abide by the Constitution and Article VI assures this. They have no more authority to break the supreme law of the land and the regulations meant to govern all artificial entities than we do to break the law of not interfering with the rights of others (the only crime we can actually commit is to harm another natural person or his property).

EDMONTON -- "Officials at the Canadian Firearms Centre are taking issue with a scene in the anti-gun documentary Bowling for Columbine."

"In the movie, in which American filmmaker Michael Moore examines the United States' obsession with guns, he walks into what he says is an Ontario Wal-Mart store and buys ammunition."

"The clerk hands it over without question."

"But under Canadian law, anyone buying ammunition must show identification, said David Austin, a spokesman for the firearms centre, a division of the federal Department of Justice."

"Austin wants to know whether Moore was asked who he was when he bought the bullets or if that part was edited out of the movie. He said the scene misrepresents the process of buying ammunition in Canada." ...

"A last-minute addition to a proposal for a Department of Homeland Security bill would punish malicious computer hackers with life in prison."

"The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday evening voted 299 to 121 to approve the bill, which would reshape large portions of the federal bureaucracy into a new department combining parts of 22 existing federal agencies, including the Secret Service, the Coast Guard, and the FBI's National Infrastructure Protection Center."

"During closed-door negotiations before the debate began, the House Republican leadership inserted the 16-page Cyber Security Enhancement Act (CSEA) into the Homeland Security bill. CSEA expands the ability of police to conduct Internet or telephone eavesdropping without first obtaining a court order, and offers Internet providers more latitude to disclose information to police." ...
