Right To Carry Reform In New Mexico

Friday, March 11, 2005

With just a little over a week left in session, HB 641 by Rep. John Heaton (D-Carlsbad) has been stalled in the House Judiciary Committee. HB 641 is the NRA-backed Right To Carry Reform bill which lowers the minimum age for a Concealed Handgun License to 21 and gives DPS the authority to negotiate reciprocal agreements with other states, among other improvements to the law. HB 641 has been automatically carried over to Friday`s Judiciary Committee agenda, since it was not taken up Wednesday. The committee is set to meet upon House adjournment this afternoon in Room 309. Please contact your State Representatives and urge them and their colleagues to pass HB 641. We`ll keep you posted!
