One would think that banning an entire product line from being imported would certainly be an impermissible burden on interstate commerce.

Interesting that the commerce clause uses that same word from the 2A... "regulate"... which we know from previous discussions didn't mean then what we think it means now....

The word would be more like "to put in good order" than "to control on a level that makes a micro-manager look like a disinterested 3rd party".

Imagine if we read it as:
[The Congress shall have Power] To put in good order Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes.

Hm. "Organize" rather than "dictate".
