For decades, using a tortured definition of “interstate commerce,” Congress has claimed the authority to regulate, control, ban, or mandate virtually everything – from wheat grown on one’s own land for personal consumption, to weed grown in an individualâ€™s own home for the same purpose, to guns manufactured, sold and kept in state boundaries.
