New Mexico Legislature’s 30-Day Session Begins Today!

New Mexico Legislature’s 30-Day Session Begins Today!

Bloomberg-Backed Anti-Gun Organizations Demanding MORE Gun Control

Dear New Mexico NRA Member:

The New Mexico Legislature began its 30-day budget session today and Bloomberg-backed national anti-gun organizations are already demanding more gun control!

Last fall, representatives from Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety testified before an interim committee that the Legislature needed to pass a bill imposing state-mandated firearm storage restrictions.  Their “gold standard” for firearm storage is requiring New Mexico gun owners to store all guns unloaded, locked and separate from ammunition at all times when not in use.  Such a proposal is not only unenforceable, but also defies logic, as it renders firearms unusable for self-defense in the middle of a drastic spike in violent crime.  Our Nation’s capital had a similar firearm storage law that was struck down in the D.C. v. Heller Supreme Court case.  The Heller decision found that restricting immediate access to legally-owned firearms was unconstitutional. But that's not stopping gun control advocates from trying to pass such a bill here in New Mexico.  In fact, Everytown is already running digital ads demanding the New Mexico Legislature enact a so-called "secure storage" law!

Please contact your State Senators and State Representatives and tell them NO MORE GUN CONTROL and NO MANDATORY STORAGE REQUIREMENTS!  No specific bills have been filed yet on this topic, but the bill introduction deadline is not until February 2.  

Please also contact Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and tell her NO MORE GUN CONTROL and NO MANDATORY STORAGE REQUIREMENTS!  Bills which are not budget-related may only be considered during the 30-day session if they receive a message from the governor.

Click here to contact your lawmakers and Gov. Lujan Grisham.


Note: there have been a slew of crime bills filed, with more coming, to address the state's "soft on crime" policies enacted by some of the same lawmakers who voted for anti-gun legislation, such as a ban on private firearm transfers and red flag firearm surrender schemes.  Your NRA-ILA is reviewing these proposals for any negative impact on law-abiding gun owners!

Sincerely,
NRA-ILA
