New Mexico: House Committee to Consider Gun Control Legislation Tomorrow

Tomorrow, the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee is scheduled to hear gun control legislation, House Bill 130.  Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 130.


House Bill 130, sponsored by Representative Linda Trujillo, would make gun owners criminally and civilly liable if a child gains unsupervised access to an unsecured firearm. New Mexico already has a first degree felony child abuse statute on the books to hold adults accountable for putting children's lives or health at risk in any manner. The tools exist to charge and prosecute parents or guardians in appropriate cases. Education is the key to protecting gun owners and their kids, not a state mandate on how one stores a firearm in his or her home.

Again, please contact members of the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 130.
