TOMORROW: Committee to hear bill criminalizing parents for teaching their child how to shoot

On Wednesday, the Senate Public Affairs Committee will meet to consider Bernalillo Democrat Sen. Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez’s S.B. 224, which will criminalize parents who teach their children how to shoot and mandate specific gun safes and locks for firearms. This is the bill’s first committee appearance.

The bill will be heard at 1:30 p.m. via Zoom and people who wish to testify against the bill can register through this link

The New Mexico Shooting Sports Association (NMSSA) writes that the bill “would tell you what you can and can’t do with a firearm in your own home by imposing government mandates on how exactly your firearms are stored.”

Also, NMSSA notes, “This bill could also make you a criminal for teaching your child how to shoot, unless your child was 12 or older and had previously undergone some type of formal class.” 

“The bill is entirely unenforceable, unless police will go door-to-door inspecting firearm storage in your home, it is impossible to know who is and who isn’t complying with the law. The bill [is] entirely unnecessary, it is already a crime to place a child in a situation that endangers their life. This bill only seeks to demonize firearm ownership and scare people away from choosing to protect their family with a gun.”

  1. And it continues; the criminalizing of overall law abiding citizens and the coddling of the criminals. These libtards will stop at nothing until everything is turned upside down. I wish I was in a position to leave this cesspool of a state.
