The article discusses the Adam Walsh Act specifically the debate on the constitutionality of the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act (SORNA) under the Commerce Clause. SORNA aims to set up a unified registry system to monitor sex abusers' movements across states facilitating crime prevention and resolution. It cites U.S. Supreme Court rulings that have established the authority of Congress to regulate interstate travel and illegal activities even if the threat is local in nature.
