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.
