Exactly. If for no other reason than even if a majority knows granting cert is the right thing to do, they are terrified that a ruling favorable to 2A rights would result in the dems packing their precious institution (a reasonable fear in the current political environment).

Maybe a strongly worded per curiam, but that would just barely move the needle.
A per curiam would have the same effect as a ruling. I don't see it happening in a CCW case since they've denied so many in the past.

NYC's extension was granted. So we hurry up and wait some more until February 22nd.

Boooo.
Thomas should write the per curiam so it is ready to go before NY can moot the case or anyone can stack the court.
