    What a load of crap. I just found out my State of NM has a new DPS leader, and he chose to quit recognizing most of the Sates that were previously honored by NM.

    Yeah, I e-mailed Gov. Martinez last night.

    Here is the link for dps website discussing the information. That was some audit they conducted!

    These were the factors:

    New Mexico statute 29-19-12E requires that in order for a state to be recognized by NM, their provisions have to be “at least as stringent or substantially similar” to New Mexico. NMDPS has generally found six things that make a state substantially different from New Mexico, and therefore would disqualify that state from being recognized:

    1. Permits issued locally rather than by the state;
    2. No fingerprint-based background check;
    3. Permits issued to persons under 21 years of age;
    4. Permits issued to resident aliens;
    5. No classroom (static) training required;
    6. No live-fire (dynamic) training required.

    http://www.dps.nm.org/index.php/nm-concealed-carry/reciprocity-agreements/

    Missouri: Mutual recognition between NM and MO.

    Nebraska: Written acknowledgement in place

    North Carolina: Written acknowledgement in place.

    North Dakota: Recognizes NM permits. Received written acknowledgement.

    Oklahoma: Written acknowledgement in place.

    *New Mexicans traveling to the following states should know these states require written reciprocity agreements before NM permits are recognized: Mississippi, South Carolina, and Wisconsin. Invitations have been sent and New Mexico is waiting on responses.

    I'll just have to alter my travel plans to avoid NM,

    and spend my tourist dollars elsewhere.


    Pity,(lip-twitch,lip-twitch) I was looking forward to

    checking out their Turquoise ...

    I'll say it again, it would certainly be a shame if

    boycotts and financial repercussions caused any bankruptcies,

    due to draconian gun restrictions, in the near future...

    Sounds like typical bureaucrat speak for job security and higher staffing needs. A department head has to keep increasing the scope of his kingdom or he/she is not powerful. Tsk, tsk.

    Unfortunately this is true. Tit for tat. I just hope the states that dropped us because of this, will now reconsider.

    States threatened to drop and New Mexico realized that revenue will drop from out-of-state. I would not be surprised the change of heart was money related.

    NM Crawfishing on Reciprocity

    They've backed up on their dropping of agreements. Here's how their page ended up the next day or so after the announcement that made everyone mad. It says they're conducting an audit, but haven't changed anything yet, and names the states with reciprocity.

    Firearms laws in NM has been a problem for years. It seemed with their new CCW law things were getting better. NM has a very Liberal Democratic history. It was only a matter of time before they would attack the new gun laws. The gun owners of NM forced a liberal Democratic Gov. to sign the CCW bill. These same NM gun owners are "Kicking" some butts again. I think our Western neighbors will win this fight. Don't be so fast about discounting our NRA Brothers in New Mexico.:)

    Politicians understand two things:

    1.-Large blocks of voters.

    2.-Money.


    We have them both. All we have to do is use them.
