New Mexico House Judiciary Committee To Hold Public Hearing This Monday On Sweeping Gun Control Measure In Santa Fe!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

House Bill 77, state Representative Miguel Garcia's sweeping gun control bill to regulate all private gun transfers, establish a state registry of lawful firearms owners and tax legal gun purchasers will be heard by the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, January 28, at 1:30 pm or upon adjournment of the House in Room 309 of the State Capitol in Santa Fe.

It is extremely important that as many people as possible attend and speak in opposition to this measure.  This committee normally asks for a show of hands in the room for and against bills, and then allows each person to stand up and briefly speak from their seat.  Arguments should be clear, concise and not repetitive.  Please speak to HB 77, not to other gun control proposals in Washington or other gun-related bills filed in New Mexico.
