Tazer + NYC - Legal?

I’m reading conflicting info.

Are Tazers legal in NYC. We also plan on riding Amtrak. I assume that I can check it in my checked bags?



Is it legal to own a taser or stun gun in New York? Yes. Based on a U.S. District Court ruling, stun guns and Tasers are legal to purchase and possess without a license as of 4/2019.

Seems like now legal to purchase in NY thanks to a court ruling. But are they legal to carry concealed? And does that apply to NY City? NYC often has its own separate laws designed to make sure their law abiding citizens are as defenseless as possible.
