According to a poll by the Wall St. Journal, NBC and Marist College, about 60% of New Yorkers express the opposite view; 41% say the law is “about right” and 19% say the law “does not go far enough” in protecting the public against gun violence. On the other side of the issue, 30% say the law went too far.

The poll was conducted from February 26 through the 28 and has a margin of error of 3.4%.
