Yes, very interesting. The contract for statehood could also be viewed as a treaty and thus, be the “law of the land”. This line of thought in my mind presents an novel approach to attacking restrictions on the 2nd Amendment.

It IS a novel approach, and perfectly legal, according to the founding documents.

However, the Supreme Court long ago took away any right a state has to remain sovereign in the presence of a federal law.

Maybe, however, this suit will expose this atrocity and set up the landslide that we need to get our country back to its founding ideals.
