I believe that Native American Tribal casinos should have full sovereignty over their gaming related activities. The Native American tribes had their land and rights taken away by what is now the United States Federal Government as well as the State Governments of this country.

The government should focus on what should happen with internet gambling which is much more of an issue and leave the tribes to regulate themselves....
