The Second Circuit Court of Appeals previously upheld the law, ruling an individual's Second Amendment right to bear arms ends at his or her front door.
Morrisey contends the Second Circuit Court's decision goes against a 2008 Supreme Court decision where justices ruled the Second Amendment allows law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms for self-defense.
"One 'keeps' arms inside the home, but one 'bears' arms outside of the home. Any ruling to the contrary simply ignores this plain language," Morrisey said in a statement.
He said the New York case affects West Virginia residents because the Second Circuit Court's ruling might influence future court decisions.
"Such a narrow view of the Second Amendment will chip away at this core constitutional right," he said.
He said the court decision also would hamper West Virginia's reciprocity agreements with other states, where individuals holding concealed carry permits in this state are allowed to carry their weapons across state lines.
