Originally introduced and passed in Montana, the FFA declares that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states. The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers of Congress under the commerce clause, with firearms as the object. (source, FirearmsFreedomAct.com)
The Intrastate Commerce Act (track legislation here) does the same thing as the FFA in regards to firearms, but also expands the principle to all products grown, produced, and manufactured within the state.
