New Mexico: House Committee Defeats Legislation Protecting Your Rights During Emergencies on a Party-Line Vote

Gun Rights

Last night, the House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee defeated House Bill 279 on a party-line vote.  The measure, filed by Rep. Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park), would have prevented future executive or Department of Health emergency orders from shutting down firearm manufacturers, retailers and shooting ranges, and denying law-abiding citizens their right to purchase, own and use firearms.  ​The committee did, however, advance Rep. Lord’s House Bill 306, legislation to tighten the limits for the New Mexico Department of Public Safety to approve a concealed handgun license application. Please take a quick moment to thank Rep. Stefani Lord (stefani.lord@nmlegis.gov) for fighting so hard to protect your Second Amendment rights!
