http://www.nraila.org/legislation/state-legislation/2013/2/new-mexico-house-republicans-united-in-opposition-to-looming-“assault-weapons”-ban.aspx

Yesterday, the New Mexico House Republican Caucus sent this letter to state House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee Chairman Eliseo Alcon and Democratic committee members, outlining their firm opposition to House Bill 402. This NRA-opposed New York-style ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms and standard capacity magazines will be heard in the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee tomorrow, February 21, at 1:30 pm (or upon adjournment of the House) in Room 315 of the State Capitol.

The following state Representatives comprise the House Republican Caucus -- please contact and thank them for urging their colleagues to reject these ineffective, invasive restrictions on law-abiding citizens and focus, instead, on enforcing existing state and federal firearms statutes against the criminals who violate them. More information on House Bill 402 can be found here. Contact information for state representatives can be found here.

HB402 has been tabled by committee 3-2.

NRA came out swinging as well as others. We had 4 Sheriffs in the room all opposed the bill!

Liberals, save 1 life push to keep bill alive, did not fly!

Good job citizens of New Mexico. Stay vigilant, they will never stop trying to take away our rights unless we meet them at the door in force everytime they try.

If you can find or afford some ammo you guys should go shooting this weekend to celebrate. I will pop off a few rounds for you guys here in Bama.
