ABQ Councilmembers Triple Down Against Second Amendment Rights!

New Mexico Reverting to Old Mexico?
Albuquerque City Council is poised to consider three additional gun control measures in September IMG iStock-884193540

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Not satisfied with restrictive gun control measures already enacted by the New Mexico Legislature, like the ban on private firearms transfers and a red flag gun confiscation law, the Albuquerque City Council is poised to consider three additional gun control measures in September:

Resolution R-20-68 urges the New Mexico Legislature to strip the firearms preemption clause from Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the State Constitution, and put that revision to voters for approval.  Without preemption, cities like Albuquerque would be able to pass whatever firearms restrictions they want — gun bans, magazine limits, licensing and registration schemes, prohibitions on carrying firearms on your person or in your car.  Only five states — CT, HI, MA, NJ & NY, all bastions of gun control — have no preemption law or constitutional protection.  Preemption ensures uniformity in state gun laws wherever you live, work or travel so that law-abiding citizens don't unknowingly run afoul of confusing and conflicting local restrictions.  This resolution is expected to be considered at TODAY's Council's meeting (on Wednesday, September 9), at 3:00 pm.

Ordinance O-19-82 mandates locked storage requirements for any firearms outside your immediate possession or control, with fines and/or jail time for violations.  Requiring all firearms out of arm's reach to be stored with a lock or in a locked container will render them useless in self-defense situations and most recreational or competitive shooting scenarios.  New Mexico already has a child abuse/endangerment statute that gives law enforcement and district attorneys the tools to charge and prosecute parents or guardians in appropriate cases when their child gains unauthorized access to a firearm and commits a crime or injures himself or another.  This ordinance is expected to be considered at the Council's meeting on Monday, September 21, at 3:00 pm.

Ordinance O-19-83 bans firearms at any building owned or leased by the city for conducting business with the public, including city hall, city libraries, city community centers, city parks and recreation facilities.  This would negate your right to carry and protect yourself in these taxpayer-owned buildings and facilities and nullify your state-issued concealed handgun license in countless locations.  Criminals would ignore these newly-created gun-free zones that leave law-abiding citizens defenseless.  This measure is expected to be considered at the Council's meeting on Monday, September 21, at 3:00 pm.

Please contact each of the members of the Albuquerque City Council and let them know you OPPOSE R-20-68, O-19-82 & O-19-83.  Click the “Take Action” button to contact Councilmembers directly.

In the 1970’s the Albuquerque PD went on strike. The people of Albuquerque pretty much stripped the gun stores of weapons to protect themselves just before the strike. When the police went on strike crime in Albuquerque went down. Not j walking and parking tickets, but robberies and assaults. Apparently the local criminal element didn’t want to get shot by scared citizens instead of arrested by the cops.

Maybe the local Police Union paid them off so people would need the cops more?

Resolution R-20-68 which is the most damaging will be heard Wednesday Sept. 9th at 3:00pm. Isn’t that like a day late and a dollar short? My computer says today is the 10th and I just got this email.

What’s up with New Mexico anyway. What made them so anti gun.

We need reciprocity and constitutional carry all across America as a Federal law, yesterday.

Go MAGAA 2020

We don’t need reciprocity and constitutional carry all accross America. We simply need people who violate their oaths of office to be tried under Title 18 and caged or fined to bankruptcy. We ALREADY have what you are asking for! It’s the 2nd Amendment. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED…We could also use the first 13 words of the 2nd back into force and effect so that the MILITIAS could convene grand juries and bring these traitorous slime balls up on charges.

And why, good progressives and leftists of New Mexico would you trust a government that does not trust you? All of the aforementioned statutes are simply impediments to the exercise of an enumerated right. Jim Crow lives.

I wonder how long before ABQ starts going door to door for the covid blood draw like they’re doing in TX.

Then the chip visit etc.

Texas isn’t doing anything. The City of Houston is. It’s an antibody test to see if you’ve been previously infected, not if you’re currently infected. Voluntary participation. Randomly selected households. And only for 2 weeks.

Once again you pass on your paranoia and bullshit by leaving out 95% of the details. But that’s how you fly, isn’t it? Deaf, dumb, blind and still a moron.

Yeah sure, last time I checked Houston was in TX and the people I’m talking to in Houston are not in your blood draw line no matter how much you try and push the scam. How many posters here do you think will let the Illuminati blood suckers draw their blood?

Humm. I cornfused. So they have two different types of tests. One to see if you have had it and a different one to see if you do have it? I would think that one test should do both. I am just trying to use some armchair logic to figure that one out.
