The US Constitution does NOT "grant" us rights. We have unalienable rights granted to us by our creator and/or observed in natural law. The US Constitution documents the authority of the Federal government, period. As it is articulated in its Preamble, the Federal Bill of Rights places further limitations on the Federal government. These "further declaratory and restrictive clauses" were NOT added to limit State governments or individuals (I discuss this in more depth HERE).
Our State Constitution's (and State Bill/Declaration of Rights) are similar in purpose and function at the State level.
The only examples where Federal laws trump the authority documented in a State's Constitution, are when Federal laws are "made in pursuance" to the US Constitution. ALL laws not in pursuance to the Constitution are unconstitutional and void.
It is the duty of a State government to assert its retained authority and push back on the out of control Federal government in ALL such matters. When our State government representatives do not do this, they are neglecting their duty (i.e. fiduciary responsibilities) and ought to be removed from office as they are no longer protecting our unalienable rights...which is the primary (some will say sole) purpose of government.
