Five years after its passage, the New York SAFE Act remains very popular with voters, who now support it 61-28 percent, that's up from 59-33 percent in October 2015.
The numbers hold when just looking at "upstate" voters, although the margin is much closer at 48-42%.
According to the latest Siena Poll, voters strongly support six measures to address guns and/or school safety – three passed by the State Senate and three passed by the State Assembly – though none have yet passed both houses.
Our own poll on Facebook, though, shows a much different result from Western New Yorkers:
By a 65-32 percent margin, Siena voters support a ban on the sale of assault weapons nationally.
And voters oppose, 69-28 percent, allowing teachers to be licensed to carry concealed firearms in school.
