Anti-gun zealots love top-down approaches. After all, lobby the right congressmen and women, get a law passed, and it has ramifications throughout the nation. Working at the state level is harder because it requires doing the same thing, but doing it 50 times. As the meme says, ain’t nobody got time for that!

At the San Diego Union-Tribue, the editorial board has suddenly discovered federalism and are trying to hit GOP lawmakers with the hypocrisy claim.
With 213 co-sponsors — including Reps. Darrell Issa of Vista, Duncan Hunter of Alpine and 208 other Republican lawmakers — the House is sure to pass a bill that won committee approval Wednesday that would let people permitted by one state carry a concealed gun in any other. The bill’s original sponsor — Rep. Richard Hudson, R-North Carolina — calls it crucial to protect the Second Amendment.
