most of upstate ny is republican and the whole downstate region
is mostly democrat
Sounds a lot like IL which was my former state of residence. In IL, most of the downstate area is politically conservative and pro-gun, but the Chicago area is extremely liberal and anti-gun. IL politics, with respect to 2A anyway, are in something of a stalemate right now as Chicago can't overcome the rest of the state to push its anti-gun agenda any further, but it's still big and powerful enough to prevent any meaningful pro-gun reform. Were it not for Cook County and the surrounding area, IL would've had CC long ago.
