Cross-State Loophole

One must always watch out for the Left’s next move in trying to control the language. Get this one...

California has some of the most stringent gun laws in the country, including a ban on the type of rifle that a shooter used to kill three and wound 15 at the garlic food festival in Gilroy on Sunday.

But the gunman had legally purchased the “assault-type rifle”, in the style of an AK-47, from the neighboring state Nevada on 9 July before carrying it illegally over state lines into California, highlighting what some gun control advocates say is a loophole in the way laws operate, state by state.

Several lawmakers have pointed at Sunday’s shooting to once again call for a federal law that would close this cross-state loophole.

So now the fact that states pass different laws according to the will of their own citizens is a “cross-state loophole.” No, it’s not a loophole. It’s federalism, and it’s a fundamental part of our system of government. It’s not a bug. It’s a feature.
