Some good news from Santa Fe!
Today, the New Mexico Senate unanimously passed SB 26, NRA & NMSSA-backed legislation sponsored by State Senator Bill Payne (R-ABQ) which would repeal Section 30-7-9 of the New Mexico Criminal Code.
This section of state law limits the purchase of rifles and shotguns by New Mexico residents to their home state and contiguous states. Repeal of this law would eliminate this restrictive language and would enable residents of New Mexico to purchase long guns in non-contiguous states, and residents of non-contiguous states to purchase long guns in New Mexico.
We will update you on House committee referrals once we have them. Thank you for your calls and emails in support of SB 26, it truly made a difference!
