RADICAL GUN CONTROL BILLS FILED IN THE 2024 SESSION OF THE NEW MEXICO LEGISLATURE

RADICAL GUN CONTROL BILLS FILED IN THE 2024 SESSION OF THE NEW MEXICO LEGISLATURE

Attention Second Amendment Supporters: 

The New Mexico Legislature convened yesterday for the 2024 30-day session.

Progressive, anti-gun lawmakers have already filed a laundry list of extremist gun control proposals that would make Biden and Bloomberg proud. And there will be more to come before the bill introduction deadline on January 31. It is imperative that you contact your State Representatives and urge them to OPPOSE HB 27, HB 114, HB 127, HB 129 and the Governor’s Gun Ban, and your State Senators and ask them to OPPOSE SB 5, SB 69, SB 90, and the Governor’s Gun Ban.


NRA-ILA will be fighting these measures at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe, but we also need YOU to fully engage in the critical effort to protect your Second Amendment rights in the Land of Enchantment.  Stay tuned for important alerts on when these bills are scheduled for public hearings or votes!

NOTE: the governor's so-called "assault weapons" bill, modeled after U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich's GOSAFE Act in Congress, has not been filed yet - but it will be introduced this session, along with legislation creating "gun-free" zones in city and county parks and playgrounds.

House Bill 27 by Rep. Joy Garratt

Expands State Red Flag Gun Confiscation Law

Allows law enforcement officers and undefined licensed health care professionals to be "reporting parties" to petitioners for extreme risk protective orders and requires immediate surrender of firearms upon service of temporary or regular extreme risk protective orders (ERPOs). This law should be repealed, not expanded!

House Bill 114 by Rep. Christine Chandler

Lawsuits Against the Firearms Industry

Allows the state attorney general or a district attorney to bring an action for injunctive relief and civil penalties against anyone in the firearms industry for alleged violations of the newly devised Firearms Industry Accountability Act, vastly increasing their liability exposure when advertising legal products or conducting lawful business activities. Private causes of action are also created.  Here's what the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the leading firearms industry trade group, had to say about the Dangers of HB 114! 

House Bill 127 by Rep. Reena Szczepanski

Raise the Age

Bans anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing or possessing any semi-automatic firearm, or any standard capacity magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, with limited exceptions.  Also criminalizes the sale or transfer of ownership of these firearms or magazines to anyone under 21.

House Bill 129 by Rep. Andrea Romero

State Waiting Period

Imposes a 14-business day waiting period on firearms purchases, which would make for the longest firearm purchase delay in the country.

Senate Bill 5 by Sen. Peter Wirth

Gun-Free Zone Expansion

Bans the possession of firearms within 100 feet of polling places or within 50 feet of a postal collection box.

Senate Bill 69 by Sen. Joseph Cervantes

State Waiting Period

Imposes a 14-business day waiting period on firearms purchases except by valid concealed handgun licensees, the longest firearm purchase delay in the country.

Senate Bill 90 by Sen. Linda Lopez

Tax on New Mexico Gun Owners & Sportsmen

Imposes a California-style 11% excise tax on firearms, firearm precursor parts, suppressors and ammunition, to be collected from New Mexico firearms retailers and sporting goods outlets and placed in the crime victims reparation fund and a fund for services to children and families involved in abuse or neglect situations. 

Gun owners are also encouraged to submit letters-to-the-editor to your local publications. If you need more information on these far-reaching gun control subject matters, please click here.
