but aren't the states sovereign and have power over their laws and law making.

In other words the Fed is not in position "legally" or "Constitutionally" to force a state to adopt a law.

To be clear I am not asking what actually happens, but what is supposed to happen.

I ask because i am alarmed at how many make the statement Fed law always trumps state law. or the Federal govt is over the state govt. and what they say goes.

Am I the idiot or did i read right in that the states are Sovereign?

Federal law can be written to apply to multiple state if the the law applies to anything that can/will/does cross state lines -

That's why Montana passed a law the other day - that Any gun manufactured within the state and is owned and stays within the state is exempt from any new federal law try to prohibit their use or ownership and they even went a step further, and made it a felony for anyone to come into Montana and attempt to enforce the federal statute
