EMAILS FOUND CONNECTING THE NRA HELPING THE NM SHERIFFS ASSOCIATION IN THEIR STANCE AGAINST STATE GUN CONTROL

STATEWIDE (KSMX)- A nonprofit that pushes for gun control laws nationwide says emails obtained through public records requests show New Mexico sheriffs received extensive help from the National Rifle Association in their stance against state gun-control legislation. According to the Associated Press, Brady, a Washington, D.C.-based organization, included excerpts from the emails in a report Monday, saying NRA representatives penned op-ed drafts for the sheriffs and used the New Mexico Sheriffs Association to advance its agenda.

Brady requested the emails from sheriffs under the state records act after more than two dozen of them declared they would not enforce gun-control laws approved by the Legislature this year.
