This past weekend, the New Mexico Senate approved SB 148, the Personal Protection Act by Sen. Shannon Robinson, on a 25-17 vote. SB 148 allows trained, law-abiding citizens to obtain a license to carry a handgun for self-defense.
The bill now moves to the House Judiciary Committee. This committee already added anti-gun amendments to a similar bill (HB 277 by Rep. Judy Vanderstar Russell) that required annual renewal of carry licenses and allowed cities and counties to ban carrying within their limits.
The Representatives listed below are key members of the House Judiciary Committee. If you live in one of the districts listed below, please call your Representative and urge him to
support SB 148, the Personal Protection Act; and
oppose annual renewal and local option amendments to SB 148.
Make your calls TODAY! There are less than two weeks left in session!
