Dems drop two new radical anti-gun bills ahead of 2023 Legislature

On Thursday and Friday, Democrats dropped more anti-gun bills to assault New Mexicans’ Second Amendment rights. 

On Thursday, far-left legislators state Rep. Patricia Roybal Caballero (D-Bernalillo) and state Sen. Linda Lopez (D-Bernalillo) dropped H.B. 72, which makes it illegal to “knowingly possess

or transfer a semiautomatic firearm converter,” making the sale of any kind of modification device to enhance usability a fourth-degree felon.

H.B. 72 requests $1.5 million from the state to enforce the extreme anti-gun bill.

Another bill, H.B. 101 by far-left state Rep. Andrea Romero (D-Santa Fe), 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.

These new anti-gun bills are just the beginning for anti-gun Democrats’ gun-grabbing agenda, which is sure to only increase, with the four already filed bills dropping before the 2023 Legislative Session starting on January 17. It is unclear if more will drop over the weekend or after the legislature goes into session.

All of the bills already proposed have either been stricken down in other states or are ripe for litigation due to their flagrant violation of the Second and Fourth amendments to the U.S. Constitution, as well as violations against the New Mexico state Constitution.

  1. More to come and I am sure this new progressive legislature will be more than happy to pass draconian laws. They are a cancer on society.

    1. It is like the Native Americans, take their right to defend themselves and the state will have total control. Except for the bad guys that will rob you, your home and their will not be shit you can do. NM democrats need to wake up.

  2. Dem leadership = 0

    Maybe dems in state could focus on the people actually engaged in criminal activity. Wouldn’t that be a novel idea? Albuquerque breaks its own murder record, violent crime is out of control, panhandling on every corner but dems want this stuff that would do nothing to affect these. Always focusing on the important – the democrat way.

  3. I think this is self explanatory, “No law.” Any lawyers out there can explain it to me???

    Sec. 6. [Right to bear arms.]
    No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and
    defense, for lawful hunting and recreational
    use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality
    or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms. (As
    amended November 2, 1971 and November
    2, 1986.)

  4. NM's Evil Lawbreaking Demonic-crap Party

    To the moronic evil demonic democrap party of New Mexico. This is from the constitution of the United States.
    “Second Amendment
    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.”
    Nobody cares about what you want any longer. Learn the law, quit breaking it.
    Republican Party of New Mexico step up, and quit being RINO’s controlled by these idiots.
