49ers Aldon Smith, CA Assault Weapons Law, and Interstate Commerce

49'ers Aldon Smith charged with illegal possession of assault weapons.
(emphasis mine)
Quote:
“Smith purchased two of the assault weapons from a gun dealer in Phoenix, Arizona on December 10, 2011, the day before the 49ers played the Arizona Cardinals,” said the statement. “Such weapons, as configured, cannot be legally purchased in Arizona by residents of California. Even if purchased in Arizona by an Arizona resident, such weapons are illegal to possess in California.
My question comes from the part I bolded. How can the State of California ban a resident of Arizona, from bringing their legal possessions into California. Is that not the complete definition of Interstate Commerce?
