In the wake of three horrific shootings from all parts of the country, New York responded with a new package of gun legislation, including a law that requires one to acquire a permit to legally own a semi-automatic rifle, while also being at-least 21 and passing a background check on-top of completing a safety course.
According to a recent survey from Siena College, nearly ¾ of poll participants feel these new laws will be good for the state of New York.
Furthermore, voters were asked to share their feelings regarding abortion rights and their stance regarding the U.S. Supreme Court and their looming decision to possibly overturn Roe v. Wade.
The poll suggests that 63% of those interviewed support a new legislative package that will protect abortion rights for New Yorkers.
On a similar pathway, 60% of voters interviewed said they wish the U.S. Supreme Court would leave Roe v. Wade alone.
This survey was conducted June 7-9 and June 13 among 802 registered voters.
