NY: Most SAFE Act Support In Big City

posted on May 27, 2015

New York’s so-called SAFE Act, a restrictive package of gun-control laws that has been touted by many politicians as having widespread acceptance in the Empire State, is actually only favored by those living in New York City, according to new polling numbers.

A Siena Research Institute poll released just yesterday revealed that upstate voters see the laws much differently than those in NYC, with a majority (51 percent) saying they’re against them.

Further results of the survey show that the SAFE Act has strong support from Democrat (77 percent) and liberal (78 percent) respondents, but is opposed by a majority of Republicans (57 percent) and conservatives (54 percent).
