Well so far three lawyers have explained in various ways the this is not a Commerce Clause issue. And I seriously doubt that Smith's lawyer will raise the Commerce Clause.
In any case, Smith bought the rifle (apparently legally) in Arizona. He merely took it to California as his property. That is not "commerce." See post 14 for a definition of "commerce."
