You still need to grovel and beg permission to get a carry permit in NY State. From the Wall Street Journal:

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan echoed a lower court judge in finding that the 2nd Amendment was not violated by a century-old New York law requiring those who want to carry guns to show “proper cause,” such as the need to carry a firearm for target practice, hunting or self-defense. Prospective gun carriers also must demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from the general population.

The plaintiffs’ lawyer says this case will probably be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
