New Yorkers Favor SAFE Act 2-1, Poll Says
It might not be popular with many in the north country, but New York's SAFE Act gun control law is favored in the state by a 2 to 1 margin.
"If you look at the upstate numbers, it is not overwhelming opposition to the SAFE Act. Yes, there's a majority opposition, but 52 to 45 is not exactly a rout," said Greenberg in a telephone interview.
Patrick Morse, head of the group North Country Friends of the 2nd Amendment, travels the state making the case against the SAFE Act.
"We still have a third of the people that believe in the Constitution. We are going to do everything we can at the polling places and we're going to continue to fight all of these erroneous laws in the courts," said Morse.
His group will be making a presentation on the SAFE Act on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Ramada Inn in Watertown.
