Your Calls and E-mails Made A Difference!
Yesterday, the New Mexico Senate unanimously passed Senate Bill 26, the NRA- and NMSSA-backed legislation sponsored by state Senator Bill Payne (R-ABQ), which would repeal Section 30-7-9 of the New Mexico Criminal Code. This state law limits the purchase of rifles and shotguns by New Mexico residents to their home state and contiguous states. As previously reported, repeal of this law would eliminate this restrictive language and would enable residents of New Mexico to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states, and residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in New Mexico. The NRA will update you on the state House committee referrals once they have been decided.
In the meantime, please take a moment to call and e-mail your state Representative and urge him or her to SUPPORT SB 26. Contact information for your state Representative’s capitol phone number and e-mail address can be found here.
Thank you for your calls and e-mails in support of SB 26. Your efforts truly made a difference!
