Legislative committee previewing anti-gun bills Tuesday

On Tuesday, the Legislative Courts, Corrections, and Justice Committee, chaired by Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Las Cruces), will preview anti-gun bills that will be reintroduced in the 2024 Legislative Session, along with new proposals that could be brought forth.

Starting at 8:35 a.m., the committee, which is meeting in Mescalero at the Inn of the Mountain Gods, will have a two-hour discussion on the 2022 New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen U.S. Supreme Court case, which struck down anti-gun laws in the Empire State.

Then, the Committee will discuss proposed anti-gun laws, including banning what they deem “assault weapons,” mandating new higher age restrictions for firearm purchases, imposing waiting periods, increasing background check requirements, attacking gun manufacturers for gun-related incidents, and more.

Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grsham’s staff will attend to discuss her gun-grabbing bills plans.

The meeting will not include a slot for public comment, and the Committee’s chairman explicitly noted that he did not invite pro-gun advocates, such as the National Rife Association or Gun Owners of America. However, the anti-gun group, the Giffords Law Center, will be prominently featured.

Pro-gun legislators, including Reps. Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park) and John Block (R-Alamogordo) will be in attendance, as well as other pro-gun committee members.

  1. All the more reason to buy another– several more guns.. The idiots in suits have no clue and STILL blame the gun and NOT looking at the mental issues, or the quacks that “treat” the wackos and let them run the streets!! The history of ANY person seeing a quack needs to be in the NCIC database and red flags show when the wacko tries to buy guns!

  2. Some are really just useful idiots and others know full well that they are serving the agenda of their communist masters in disarming the public , getting us ready for the red Bolshevik terror that concludes every communist takeover. These marxists and their mindless dupes care nothing about real public safety as we’ve seen crime spike to astounding levels . The facts and the constitution be damned, these destructive sellouts continue to push their commie agenda to destroy this once great country one unconstitutional law at a time. We must oppose these Marxists and resist everything that defies our God given rights under the constitution of the US.

  3. Evidently they have forgotten that the Territory of New Mexico ratified the Constitution of the United States, including the Bill of Rights, to become the 47th State. Since the state ratified the Constitution, and since the 2nd Amendment was already in place when they ratified it, they cannot by-pass it, or any other Amendment, by using the 10th Amendment, or by any other means, without violating the Constitution of the United States of America. Of course liberals don’t want to observe the Constitution, they want to do away with it so they can usher in communism.

  4. These “anti-gun laws” are, by definition, completely unconstitutional — what part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” is unclear?
    There are alternatives… here’s one that makes more sense-
    How about drastically increasing all penalties for committing violent crimes using firearms (or any item capable of causing great bodily harm for that matter), particularly for multiple offenders? Make a 2nd conviction a possibility of life in prison. Considering how difficult it is to get a single conviction, that seems pretty reasonable. Of course, that would mean that those laws would actually have to be enforced and we’d need to get rid of the democrats’ revolving door injustice system.
    If the socialist left cared about the violence and the crime, wouldn’t the focus be on the criminals and the violent criminal offenses, rather than an inanimate object?
    The answer reveals that it isn’t about crime or violence, it’s about a culture that values freedom — the socialists need to disarm the population so that it has no means to defend itself against their tyranny. These oppressors know that, aside from being a tool to defend freedom, firearms are an extremely powerful symbol of that freedom.

  5. Jury nullification; Pro-gun Counties and Sheriffs; basically just not following unconstitutional laws; Get around the Dems by doing what they do: Ignore the laws you do not like.

  6. You just can’t fix “stupid!” They need to leave our 2nd amendment rights alone. A stupid state law does not supersede the constitution.
    Laws mean nothing to the “bad” guys, they will get their hands on guns no matter what the law says. And if you look at the states/cities that have anti-gun laws, they have the highest of crime committed by the use of guns. Duh, that is not hard to know why, the good guys cannot defend themselves and they restrict the police for doing their job.
    MLG is an evil and ungodly individual and so are her minions (aka comrades). Why people voted these people in office is beyond my comprehension.

  7. Do you really think more anti-gun laws would have stopped De la O from killing that Alamogordo police officer?

  8. No Way! The gun he used was illegal. He would not have used it, had he been incarcerate awaiting trial. However some gutless, nutless judge release before his trial for a similar offence.

  9. The comment about the judge is exactly where journalists have fallen short. Name the names people. Name the names.
