Do states trump Bill of Rights on firearms?

"The right of individuals to keep and bear arms may have some validity on the federal level, but states have a right to regulate and ban firearm ownership among the people, says California Attorney General Bill Lockyer."

... "Likewise," he continued, "the California Supreme Court has determined that laws passed by the state legislature which address gun control can be valid." To support that conclusion, Lockyer cited state high court passages noting that the California Constitution did not contain a right of its citizens "to keep and bear arms." ....

"His supporters said last night that he had been contacted by probation officers to discuss details of his release."

"There may be concerns about his safety: his trial heard he had received deaths threats."

"Martin's plea - that he opened fire in self-defence - stirred fierce public controversy after he was initially convicted of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. Last October, however, three appeal court judges accepted fresh evidence that he had been suffering from a paranoid personality disorder."

"The original conviction was quashed and his sentence subsequently reduced to five years for the manslaughter of 16-year-old Fred Barras and the wounding of his accomplice, Brendon Fearon, 30." ...

"Millard Superintendent Timothy J. Raymond says the coach, whose name is being withheld, was shooting at cans in an empty field with a new gun he was showing to friends. Because it is district property, no guns are permitted. Because the coach was shooting next to where the youths were playing, parents asked him to stop. He refused."

"Parents tell us that head football coach Dean Fowles, who also is a Delta High assistant principal, was with his assistant coach during the target practice. Raymond says he did not receive such information. Fowles did not return our calls."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
