Don't fool yourself. The restrictions are all over NY State. Sure NY City is worse today but it is coming your way just like it did the year before. You are just a step behind but will get the same laws. Do you have a concealed carry permit? Can you go to your tag agency and apply and get one as long as you don't have a felony conviction? Having to have a permit is bad enough but not being able to get one is even worse. I am betting it is not easy to get one anywhere in NY unless you are buddy's with the judge or have a lot of money and or political influence..
