Yes, the Kel-Tec Carbine is a "rifle" for legal purposes....
The big problem I see is the New York state "assault weapons" law -

21 (i) a folding or telescoping stock;
22 (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of
23 the weapon;
24 (iii) a bayonet mount;
25 (iv) a flash suppressor or threaded barrel designed to accommodate a
26 flash suppressor;
27 (v) a grenade launcher; or
28 (b) a semiautomatic shotgun that has at least two of the following

Since the Kel-Tec has a pistol grip, and since it folds in half, I suspect it would qualify as an "assault weapon".
I think you also need to worry about magazine capacity in New York.
