Every time Schumer supports 'state's rights', it's because

it will screw with individual rights in a way he approves:
Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.), who has pledged to filibuster the amendment, called it a breach of states' rights. "Each state has carefully crafted its concealed-carry laws in the way that makes the most sense to protect its citizens," he said. "Clearly, large, urban areas merit a different standard than rural areas," he said. "To gut the ability of local police and sheriffs to determine who should be able to carry a concealed weapon makes no sense. It could reverse the dramatic success we've had in reducing crime in most all parts of America."
Not a surprise, but Schumer has the same problem Giuliani had: apparently your rights- at least some of them- should depend on the size of the place you live. And he thinks 'may issue', where the sheriff or police chief can screw your carry license application around for months, or just deny it because he wants to, is a wonderful thing. Which, to a statist clown like Schumer, it is.

And note that 'reducing crime in most all parts of America' line: he ignores that the places with the most restrictions on firearms ownership, especially concealed carry, are generally the ones with the worst crime problems, "Let's just gloss over that because it undermines my bigotry."

and now for a comment in the wrong place....

Just thinking about the birth cert:

There are stories of a woman once becoming pope (officially Pope John, un-officially Pope Joan, the English woman).

Supposedly, the selected candidate must mow sit on a special chair in the sisteen chapel while the cardinals pass beneath and formally declare in Latin

"He has testicles and they hang well"

After that, they are free to send the smoke signal up the chimney.

Looks like the US needs a simillar ceremony with birth certs
