Two Important New Mexico Pro-Gun Bills Need Your Help!

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

 

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!


With just three and a half days left in session, several important NRA-backed bills are on the move. 

 

Last night, the Senate Judiciary Committee reported out HB 588 sponsored by State Representative John Heaton (D-Carlsbad).  The bill would allow Concealed Handgun Licensees to protect themselves in establishments that sell alcohol for off-premises consumption.  Currently, places such as grocery stores, convenience stores and shopping supercenters are off-limits to licensees because they are treated the same as bars and nightclubs under the law.  This important change to the statute is just one step away from passing into law. 

 

Please contact your State Senators in Santa Fe as soon as possible and urge them to support HB 588.  Contact information for Senators can be found at http://legis.state.nm.us/lcs/legislatorsearch.asp

 

Also last night, the House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee reported out SB 39 introduced by State Senator Shannon Robinson (D-Albuquerque).  "Castle Doctrine" self-defense legislation offers protection from criminal prosecution and civil lawsuits to victims who lawfully use force to defend themselves and their families.  The bill also states that you have "no duty to retreat" from a violent attack if you are not the initial aggressor and you are not engaged in criminal activity. 

 

The bill now faces its toughest hurdle in the House Judiciary Committee, where time is running short and opposition is strong. 

 

Please call and email the members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and urge them to support SB 39.  Contact information for committee members can be found at http://legis.state.nm.us/lcs/committeedisplay.asp?CommCode=HJC
