ATTENTION New Mexico Concealed Handgun Licensees: Update on Important Rule Change Allowing Concealed Carry in State Parks.

NRA-ILA

NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, the State Parks Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department held a public hearing to accept input on proposed amendments to Section 19.5.2.21 of the New Mexico Administrative Code, which includes a removal of the current ban on concealed handgun licensees carrying handguns in state parks.

A representative from the NRA-ILA testified in support of this rule change, along with several concealed handgun instructors from across the state.  No one spoke in opposition to this proposal.  The Department will continue to accept written comments on the measure until 5:00pm on October 31.  Please send comments by email to april.alvarado@state.nm.us  or by USPS to April Alvarado, EMNRD State Parks Division, 1220 South St. Francis Drive; Santa Fe, NM 87505.

As you recall, state Representative Zach Cook (R-Ruidoso) sponsored, and Governor Susana Martinez (R) supported, legislation during this year’s thirty-day budget session to overturn this restriction but opponents of the measure successfully stalled and prevented its passage. (NRA-ILA previously reported on this legislation here.)

Now is your chance to express your support for this important policy change to win back your right to protect yourself in state parks!

    1. The National and Wisconsin Left Liberals, Anti-Gunners, are trying to end, ban all Right To Carry Permits here in Wisconsin, after the tragic spa shooting near Milwaukee, yesterday. The left libs in WI: too are again, blaming WI: Gov. Walker for signing that Right to Carry Bill, into a law last Fall….. So all Right to Carry States, have to watch out for the Left Liberals, Anti-Gunners in their States.

    2. The two incidents last week in the news show why you need right to carry everywhere. We had our armed wacko 2 weeks ago in Minnesota. They liberals will use anything to restrict our rights, take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it, thats fair. My broker says canned goods and ammo.

    3. [...] Story: The state of New Mexico is considering a rule change for Concealed Handgun Licensees and you can help move this in the right direction.  This rule change will make it legal for license holders to carry a concealed handgun in a state park, if implemented.  Your comment needs to be received by 5:00PM October 31, 2012.
