New Mexico Legislative Session Ends Without Any New Gun Control!

New Mexico Legislative Session Ends Without Any New Gun Control!

The New Mexico Legislature adjourned sine die at noon today.  The following gun control measures were defeated this session, which was especially challenging with the Capitol closed to the public and committee hearings held via Zoom instead of in-person.  NRA-ILA appreciates all of you who participated in these meetings to voice your concerns about these bills, and who contacted your lawmakers in opposition to them.  Warning: we expect to see many of these again in future legislative sessions!

  • HB 102 (creating a taxpayer-funded "firearm death review panel" to recommend future gun control measures) passed House Judiciary Committee and was tabled in House Appropriations Committee;  
  • HB 166 (ban on home-built firearms and 3D-printed gun components) passed House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee and was left pending in House Judiciary Committee;
  • HB 193 (expansion of current red flag law) passed House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee, passed House Judiciary Committee, was pulled from the House Calendar and referred to House Rules Committee;
  • HB 353 (requiring stolen gun checks by anyone receiving a firearm) was taken off House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee agenda and never heard;
  • SB 224 (mandatory storage legislation) passed the Senate Health & Public Affairs Committee and was left pending in Senate Judiciary Committee; and
  • SB 312 ("re-imagining" the mission of the NM Game & Fish Department) was tabled in Senate Conservation Committee.  

Unfortunately, the House did give final approval to SB 32, a ban on trapping on all public lands, on a narrow 35-34 vote, and has sent the bill to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for her signature.  Please contact the governor and urge her to VETO SB 32.
