New Mexico Background Check & Gun Registration Bill Rising From the Dead

New Mexico –-( A2ATF Network:

House Bill 77 was on the ropes last week after a tie vote in the Senate Public Affairs committee with Democrat Senator Daniel Ivey-Soto (D-Albuquerque) crossing the aisle to vote against the background check and gun registration bill.

HOWEVER a second vote was taken last Thursday after some amendments were added giving new life to this anti-gun legislation.

Senator Ivey-Soto then changed his vote in favor of moving the bill along to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The bill which started out EXPANDING background checks to ALL private sales, has been stripped and amended to close the so-called “gun show loop hole”.

We all know that expanding background checks is a step closer to registering all firearms!

There is still hope of killing HB-77 outright!

The state legislature adjourns at noon this Saturday, don’t let the gun grabbers get a foot in the door by ramming HB-77 through at the last minute.

Anti-gun Governor Susana Martinez has already said she would sign HB-77.

The fight is not over, here is what you can do:

These people are insane and do not know rural New Mexico at all. What they are saying is that “to reduce gun violence” ,they will encourage a lawful insurection. Now maybe you got to go to a university to think that away, I dont know, but I do know rural NM and I can tell you they wont give an inch . That is what these Kalifonia transplants in Sante Fe need to understand and quick. Most Peace Officers across the state wouldnt favor such idiotic ideas either. And where I come from in rural NM we still have Peace… Read more »
