Violating state firearms law is not, in itself a violation of Federal law, unless you are an FFL holder. Complying with state laws is a requirement of being licensed.

There may however, be Federal and state laws that mirror each other and you could then be in violation of both laws.

Ok, last night on the news and the story was about the Feds raiding the Medical marijuana clubs in SF, even though the supreme court made a decision on this, and basically they stated that Fed law supercedes state law.
So I was wondering about this setting a precident as far as firearms go (fed AW ban goes away, reg. cap mags,etc)
So, couldn't we turn this to our advantage?
Couln't a savvy lawyer use this at some point to make the Ca. state bans go away?
