but if something's illegal under federal law, how can it be legal under state laws? That makes little/no sense to me. If it's illegal nationwide, how can it be exempt in certain jurisdictions? It sounds EXACTLY like the 2nd amendment to me, only opposite. How can handguns and firearms be illegal and banned in certain jurisdiction, but it's unconstitutional to do so? This whole discussion makes me glad I'm not pre-law.

edit: or does it have to do with possession and usage across state lines? Isn't it a state legal issue when it's in a single state, but once the MM has crossed state lines, then it's an issue of federal possession?
