I'm almost certain that New York is far from the only state that doesn't have a RKBA provision in the state's constitution. I'm pretty sure I researched that several years ago.

Interestingly, Massachusetts (the seat of the American Revolution) does have a RKBA provision -- but it is limited to defense of the State.

Connecticut has a RKBA provision, which specifically mentions "in defense of the self and of the state," yet NO carry is allowed in Connecticut without a permit. You have to wonder how that system has survived. I suspect the courts in Connecticut are so liberal that nobody dares bring a case.

Looks like this may be a good read on the subject: http://www.guncite.com/journals/dowrkba.html
