Does the Commerce clause say the federal government cannot regulate intra-state commerce - say a transaction between two citizens of NY or two citizens of California or two citizens of Florida?

If that is "YES" than how would a federal law require background checks in NY, or California, or Florida? In other words, a federal law to require background checks would violate the Commerce Clause; right?
That was what the Raich case was about, and SCOTUS upheld the commerce clause ruling.
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.
