Contact Your State Senators in Opposition to These Bills
Dear Second Amendment Supporter:
The attacks on law-abiding gun owners keep coming at the Roundhouse, this time in the New Mexico Senate. Two new bills which have been filed in that chamber show how far progressive lawmakers will go to restrict your rights:
Senate Bill 116 by Sen. Carrie Hamblen (D-Las Cruces) bans anyone under the age of 21 from possessing any semi-automatic firearm, with limited exceptions; it also bans anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing these same firearms. This will have the effect of curtailing, if not outlawing, youth participation in hunting and shooting sports.
Senate Bill 171 by Sen. Bill Soules (D-Las Cruces) attempts to supersede federal law by making it a felony to own a firearm sound suppressor and other National Firearms Act items, as well as certain semi-automatic handguns, in New Mexico.
It is critical that you contact your State Senators TODAY and urge them to OPPOSE these measures!
