"Please correct me if I am wrong but as a result of Heller and McDonald the 2nd Amendment has now been incorporated into the states which prior to that it was not. NY I believe is one of the few if not the only state that does not have a RKBA statement in the state’s constitution. My impression is that the Constitution places limits on what the federal government can do and incorporation passes those restrictions down to the states. Given that there should be no reason why the NY SAFE Act shouldn’t be overturned."
California is another one of those States. It's interesting that of the 48 signers of the original California Constitution, 25 were born in New York.
