Ah, but has it? Despite advocates' claims that it has stopped X amount of felons from buying guns, we have yet to see any negative crime trend directly attributable to it.
That's not why I do. Of all the ideas passed in 93, when the homicide rate started trending down, only BG Checks have been in place for the full duration of that decline.

JD, what principled limits, if any, do you think there are on federal authority?

Or is it your sense that federal authority can be extended into any area if that extension seems warranted?
The ones in the constitution- Anything not prohibited by an Amendment, or not allowed by an article. When there's a question involved, we have a court system to figure that out.
