New Mexico: Village Of Corrales Councilors Reject Restrictions On Lawful Carrying Of Firearms

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Last night, the Corrales Village Council defeated anti-gun Resolution 12-032 by a 4-2 vote!  (Click to read more or watch the news report).  This proposal would have imposed a far-reaching ban on the possession of firearms in many village facilities (including outdoor parks, recreational centers and the community library) and the parking lots surrounding them.  Sponsor Mick Harper and Councilor Jim Fahey voted in support of this gun ban, while Councilors Ennio Garcia-Miera, Hoyt Hart, John Alsobrook and Pat Clauser voted against it.  Thank you to the many NRA members who turned out to this village council meeting to express opposition to these misguided, and likely unconstitutional, restrictions on the lawful carrying of firearms for personal protection.  Your participation made the difference!

Article II Section 6 of the New Mexico Constitution states that “no law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense” and"no municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms."   In spite of this clear language and case law rejecting such local regulation, similar ordinances and resolutions are bound to surface in the future in other municipalities and counties.  It is critical that you keep a watchful eye for similar proposed restrictions and report them to NRA-ILA's Grassroots Office at 1-800-392-8683 so that we can promptly notify members in the affected area.  Corrales is proof: local activism can make the difference in thwarting these attacks on our Second Amendment rights!
