So if this proposed bill goes into effect, what impact is it going to have on state weapons laws? Will it be anything like vehicle laws, where states have to accept other state's requirements? e.g. if you live in the fine state of Pennsylvania where standard capacity magazines are legal and you travel to say Maryland or New York where they are not legal, are you going to get into a bind with the law?

usually the fed will give states the option of A) follow our law or B) lose $$ for something critical, like when they did the national speed limit.

You have to admit though this would have a struggle to pass the Senate.
