Why are you fighting this?
Seems to me that the best course for you, if you think its unconstitutional, is to let it go into effect in all its glory then run it up to the Supreme Court so they can make a definitive ruling and set a precedence so this stuff can never be passed again.
If you stop it without doing that they may just pass it again.
LOCKPORT, N.Y. -- New York State's new tough gun control law continues to cause controversy and debate. Tuesday night, lawmakers in Niagara County voted unanimously to support legislation that many other counties have passed, sending a symbolic message to lawmakers in Albany to repeal the SAFE Act. Some frustrated gun owners held a rally before the meeting to voice their concerns, and urge legislators to vote to ask lawmakers to repeal the SAFE Act.
The counties in green are passed and the counties in yellow are pending, and all the others need to decide what they want to do. But as you all can see the majority of NYS doesn't want this.

Now how do we petition congress to split the state in half? Seeing as we are not represented up here. Us folks in upstate NY need to brake away from the city.
