New Mexico: Bill to Criminalize the Private Transfer of Firearms to be Heard in Senate Public Affairs Committee Today

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Contact members of this Committee IMMEDIATELY in opposition to House Bill 77!

House Bill 77 has been added to the Senate Public Affairs Committee agenda for today, and will likely be heard after 6:00 p.m.  If able, please make plans to attend this important public hearing to voice your opposition to HB 77.  The Senate Public Affairs Committee will meet in Room 321 in the state Capitol in Santa Fe.

If you are unable to attend, please call AND email members of this Committee and respectfully voice your opposition to House Bill 77.  Contact information for members of this Committee is listed below.

Although House Bill 77, sponsored by Rep. Miguel Garcia (D-ABQ), has undergone significant revisions since its introduction, NRA-ILA still opposes the portion of the House-approved version which would criminalize private transfers at gun shows.  HB 77 mandates that organizers or promoters of gun shows in New Mexico provide the services of a federal firearms licensed dealer (FFL) to process background checks for private firearm transfers, and requires that all transfers at these events go through an FFL unless transferred to a New Mexico concealed handgun licensee.  This measure also provides immunity from liability to the transferor and the FFL for complying with this requirement, requires mental health records that disqualify someone from being able to purchase or possess firearms to be reported to the FBI for inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, and establishes a process for the restoration of rights if the disqualifying condition is removed.
