APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

New Mexico HB 641 Is On Its Way to the Governor

Monday, March 21, 2005

 
In the waning hours of the legislative session, the New Mexico Senate gave final approval to HB 641, the NRA-backed Right To Carry Reform bill, on a 32-7 vote.  HB 641, sponsored by Rep. John Heaton (D-Carlsbad) & Sen. Shannon Robinson (D-Albuquerque) lowers the minimum age requirement for a Concealed Handgun License from 25 to 21, extends the term of a license from 2 to 4 years, allows you to qualify with any caliber handgun and carry any caliber smaller than that, and gives DPS the authority to enter into reciprocal agreements with certain other states.  The bill now goes to Governor Bill Richardson (D), who strongly supported the measure throughout the legislative process, for his expected signature.
 
Thank you for all your phone calls and emails in support of HB 641 during the session.  Please take a moment to write a short note of thanks to our bill sponsors.  Without your grassroots support and their hard work and determination, this important legislation would not have passed this year:
 
The Honorable John Heaton
102 South Canyon
Carlsbad, NM  88220
 
The Honorable Shannon Robinson
716 Indiana SE
Albuquerque, NM  87108
 
Also, please email the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Joe Cervantes (D-Las Cruces), and thank him for setting this bill for a hearing and helping move it out of his committee at a critical juncture in the process: cervanteslaw@zianet.com
 
Thank You!
