Dem anti-gun bills, GOP Constitutional Carry bill to have Tuesday hearing

On Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., the New Mexico House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee will hold a hearing to consider multiple anti-gun bills, as well as one pro-gun Constitutional Carry bill.

The three anti-gun bills that will be heard include the unconstitutional H.B. 50 to ban firearm magazines over nine rounds by Rep. Patricia Roybal-Caballero (D-Albuquerque), H.B. 100, and H.B. 101 by Rep. Andrea Romero (D-Santa Fe). 

H.B. 101 bans large-capacity magazines “regardless of whether the device is attached to a firearm.” It forces anyone owning such magazines to “remove the large-capacity magazine from the state,” “sell the large-capacity magazine to a licensed firearms dealer,” or “surrender the large-capacity magazine to a law enforcement agency for destruction.” It includes no grandfather clause and would take effect July 1, 2023, if passed. Any violator of the proposed law would be a fourth-degree felon.

Furthermore, anyone who owns any semi-automatic firearm, which Romero dubs an “assault” weapon, would be forced to either “remove the assault weapon from the state,” “render the assault weapon permanently inoperable,” or “surrender the assault weapon to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction.” Like the previous section of the bill, anyone not in compliance will become a fourth-degree felon.

H.B. 100 mandates a 14-day waiting period before anyone can buy a firearm in New Mexico.

The Committee will also hear H.B. 164 by Reps. John Block (R-Alamogordo), Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park), Tayna Mirabal Moya (R-Los Lunas), Jimmy Mason (R-Artesia), and Mark Duncan (R-Farmington). The pro-gun bill would legalize Constitutional Carry (permitless carry) in the state for New Mexicans over 18, joining 25 other states, including liberal Maine and Vermont, in enacting such laws.

  1. The criminals will obey this, no problem. What part of these ‘representatives’ missed their Oath ? Shall not be abridged. The end.

    1. Infringed!…They usher in millions of illegal immigrants and drugs and firearms with cartel involvement and then want us defenseless.

  2. Why does our state mimic the socialist republic of California? Is MLG in love with Newsome or just his idiotic policies? Both were among the most tyrannical Governors during covid. Both crippled their states economies. Yet one survived a recall and the other was reelected…truly a sad commentary on voter intelligence.

  3. Voter intelligence has little to do with voter fraud. When we vote on programmable computers based on algorithms your wishes are futile . Honest citizens are blamed for these despicable communist tyrants occupying seats of power. Both Newsome and Grisham are creatures that have gone to the same indoctrination schools taught to hate America, Christians, and show contempt for the unwashed masses. All has been on display during their tenure as “governors “.

  4. Tell the truth but not the real truth on why those despicable communist tyrants remain in office. My comments have again been deleted, shadow banned by the gatekeepers who won’t tolerate the real truth!

    1. Could I be a communist and part of a well regulated Militia?
      Just curious- see bumper sticker saying “I support trump and I own a gun” We’ll… I’m a socialist and have a gun.

    1. -A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.- just curious- no one ever mentions the “well regulated Malitia” part? Seems firearms fall under the regulation of a malitia which falls under state control…just curious.
