Unfortunately, I think you might be mistaken. Look what happened in illinois recently when the SCOTUS ruled on concealed carry. If you give them the authority to rule on that state decision, expect them to rule on this one too. The door has been opened for federal meddling in things that are reserved to the states. New York can make whatever gun laws it wants as long as it adheres to the state constitution. Feds have absolutely no authority on this whatsoever.
