After Heller, they apparently ruled against incorporation.I'm trying to do some legal research on why NY is so darn problematic on getting their gun laws struck. It doesn't help, of course, that we have only had Heller for a year or so and thus far the only court challenge based on it is the half baked Maloney case. But apparently the problem lies further back, much further, yes? OK, so I need an education on the matter: what's the lineage of court decisions in the state and 2nd Circuit which keep NY so iron clad screwed up?
