New Mexico Senate Files Restaurant Carry Legislation!

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the Senate Corporations & Transportation Committee!

State Senator George Munoz (D-4) has introduced Senate Bill 608, a measure that 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 a majority of its annual gross receipts from the sale of food.  The measure is somewhat similar to House Bill 105, sponsored by State Representative John Heaton (D-55), which is currently in the House Judiciary Committee.

SB 608 has been referred to the Senate Corporations & Transportation Committee.  Please contact the committee members listed below at their capitol offices and urge them to support SB 608.  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. 

Also, House Bill 105 has not yet been set for a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee.  Please continue contacting the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support HB 105 and to ask the Chairman to set the bill for a hearing.  Contact information for both committees can be found below.
