NRA Backed Bills Pending in NM Legislature

Please Begin Contacting Committee Members in Support of NRA-Backed Bills Filed in the New Mexico Legislature!

As previously reported, two NRA-backed bills have been filed in the New Mexico Legislature and have now been assigned to committees where they are awaiting action. Senate Bill 220 is the NRA-backed “Castle Doctrine” self-defense bill which would allow lawful occupants of a dwelling to use any degree of physical force against an intruder.  The second, House Bill 140, would eliminate the mandatory mid-term firearms refresher training course currently required for Concealed Handgun Licensees.

SB 220, sponsored by state Senator George Munoz (D-Gallup), has been referred to the Senate Public Affairs & Senate Judiciary Committees.  As of now, no hearing has officially been scheduled for the bill.  Please contact members of these two committees and urge them to support SB 220:
