    Unfortunately the arguments used to defend the state could also be used to defend the federal government in similar situations. Cases like this can become two edged swords if everyone is not careful. If a city intention is to further clarify a state law that might not be bad but if the intention is to contradict a state law and remove a right then it should be prevented from doing so. To do so would make citizens living in that city second class state citzens when compared to other citzens.
