That issue was settled in the war between the states, also known as the Civil War.

Supreme Court ruled on this subject a while ago that "the Union is forever binding" or some such. So no bueno. Unconstitutional. Seems to go kind of counter to the life, liberty and persuit of happiness bit. It would take nothing short of winning a one state civil war with the US. Count me in, all my permits are State. :twisted:
