[States' Rights] Abortions for some, stockpiles of weapons for others!
Is the concept of States' Rights an outmoded throwback to our nation's more formative days? I sure think so. Here's some hits from the the first page of Google News if you search "states rights":
- A sheriff in Duluth, MN, arguing that Obama's new gun provisions can be circumvented by new rights at the state level
- Prop. 8 backers arguing for the State's right to keep LGBT people from getting married
- Roe v. Wade circumvention efforts enabled by new state legislation
Given the immobility of federal supremacy clauses, is there a place for state's rights in today's day and age? If so, in what capacity? Or is the argument just the last bastion of miscreants and those soon to be ignored by the inevitable march of progress?
