But the 2nd Amendment doesn't mention "threats to your person", or any language similar. It says "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State,...". Plus, the "free State" would -in this case- be New York, who clearly doesn't want that militia. Or doesn't consider a militia to be a priority. And/or has the national guard already (a well-regulated militia!).

In any event, I don't see how there is a case. The feds didn't do it, the State did. Implicit in that amendment is the power of a (or the) State.
