In my view, any of the States has authority to do that if it chooses, as long as its own constitution doesn't forbid it. A few already do. The federal government does not, and so we can expect variations in the law from State to State to continue.
KrisL I agree with you completely--the states can and should adopt such laws. The federal gov't cannot stop you from owning a gun. I do think they can prohibit the sale of some types of guns, such as AK47. The Constitution does not say all guns.
The way I see it is, even with gun laws, Government still has guns and so do criminals. The police have been shooting people up over here pretty often. Criminals don't care about gun laws. Innocent people are unprotected from both.
