Virginia v. Bloomberg: Would the Commonwealth Indict a Yankee Mayor?

The Mayor of NYC, convinced that his city's problems are rooted in Virginia, sent agents into Virginia in order to scam gun dealers into making illegal gun sales. Virginia, a Commonwealth where the right to not own a gun is barely recognized, took offense and passed a law stating that it is a felony to send someone to do this unless he is accompanied by Virginia or federal law enforcement agents.

And then the Virginia Attorney General sends a nice letter to the NYC Mayor explaining federalism to him.

Please, O Lord, please, let it be in Chesterfield. Man would I love to sock it to some Yankee meddlers.
