NYC rescinded the law. There was nothing to rule on.
That does not immediately mean that all other 2A cases before the Court are moot.

Apr28th:
"Yesterday the Supreme Court issued its long-awaited decision in a challenge to New York City’s ban on the transport of licensed handguns outside the city. Because the city had repealed the ban last summer, a majority on the court agreed with the city that the challengers’ original claims are moot – that is, no longer a live controversy. In a concurring opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the majority in concluding that the case should go back to the lower court, but he also indicated that he shared the concern – expressed by Justice Samuel Alito in his dissenting opinion – that the lower courts “may not be properly applying” the Supreme Court’s most recent gun rights rulings, in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago. Therefore, Kavanaugh suggested, the Supreme Court “should address that issue soon, perhaps in one of the several Second Amendment cases with petitions for certiorari now pending before the Court.” The court’s electronic docket reveals that Kavanaugh’s suggestion may come to fruition soon: By the end of the day yesterday, the Supreme Court had distributed for consideration at Friday’s conference 10 cases that had apparently been on hold for the New York case.

Can you point to where I said that?

Please don't try to put words in my mouth or ascribe meaning or intent that does not exist. The city rescinded the law. There was nothing to rule on.

It's not "a sad day" anywhere with regard to this case. It's the way things are done in the SCOTUS. It's only a sad day for people who don't understand that.

... the Supreme Court had distributed for consideration at Friday’s conference 10 cases that had apparently been on hold for the New York case.
And they are not going to be heard, but for altogether different reasons.
