If a challenge succeeded, I think it would be because the concealed carry law was not based on one of the enumerated powers of the federal government in the constitution.
I think Congress would have a hard time showing CCW law to be an enumerated power they could regulate.

Similarly, Congress could cut off Homeland Security funding to states that did not help "reduce crime" by "voluntarily" banning concealed carry.
Again, I can't see Congress doing that either. In the '70s there was more support for the 55 MPH than now and so they got away with it but it didn't last. If they tried a 55 MPH again today they would get toasted I think.

I guess my bottomline is that a national ban on concealed carry is quite unlikely.
