New Mexico: Hearing Scheduled for Restaurant Carry Legislation

Thursday, January 29, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the House Business & Industry Committee!

House Bill 105, sponsored by State Representative John Heaton (D-Carlsbad), will be heard in the House Business & Industry Committee on Tuesday, February 3, 2009.  HB 105 would permit Concealed Handgun Licensees to protect themselves in establishments that are licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises IF the establishment derives more than 60% of their annual gross receipts from the sale of food. 

The legislature passed House Bill 588 in 2007 to open up grocery and convenience stores, which sell alcohol for consumption off the premises, to Concealed Handgun Licensees.  NRA supported that bill and backs this latest effort to allow them to lawfully enter restaurants. 

Please make plans to attend the House Business & Industry Committee meeting and show your support for this important piece of legislation.  The meeting will take place on Tuesday, February 3 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 309 of the State Capitol in Santa Fe. 

If you cannot attend, please contact the committee members listed below at their capitol offices and urge them to support HB 105.  Remind them that it is already unlawful to carry a firearm while under the influence of alcohol, and that Concealed Handgun Licensees should not be denied their right to self-defense just because other patrons of a dining establishment can legally choose to consume alcoholic beverages on the premises.
