GUN BILL LEGISLATION HEADS TO GOVERNOR
SANTA FE (KSMX) – The New Mexico House worked late Monday night on a bill that would expand background checks for firearms – including almost all private purchases of those weapons. The bill is headed to the Governor’s desk, after a nearly three-hour limit on floor debate. The vote passed 42-27. The law is designed to make it more restrictive for felons and the severely mental to obtain weapons. 26 New Mexico counties, including Roosevelt and Curry say they won’t enforce the laws, noting its infringement of second amendment rights.
