A large chunk if not majority of NYC residents are foreign nationals, children of foreign nationals, descendents of slaves and other segments of society that do not view our flag with warmth in their heart.

Upstate however. We'd be a state with constitutional carry and castle doctrine if we were our own state.

Long Island would join you guys, if you'd have us. A lot of us in Suffolk County are red as blood, and would love a chance to have some Constitutional gun laws.

Well the hard truth is we missed on a constitutional convention last gubernatorial race. Piss poor attendance at the poles throughout upstate. Turnout was and always is trash. And our next opportunity to request one is like 15 years from now iirc.

Maybe somehow we could get the wheels moving preemptively but its going to take grass roots energy
