N.M. Legislature Adjourns After Sending Bloomberg A Message About Gun Control

posted on March 20, 2017

The New Mexico legislature adjourned on Saturday, but not before sending Michael Bloomberg and other out-of-state gun-banners a message.

According to NRA-ILA, out-of-state gun control organizations targeted New Mexico during the 2016 election cycle and in the early months of 2017, spending more than a quarter of a million dollars on state races and hiring a half-dozen lobbyists in a failed attempt to pass House Bill 50, Senate Bill 48 and House Bill 548—measures that would have criminalized gun sales and transfers by private individuals.

"The people of New Mexico have soundly rejected the gun control agenda of New York billionaire Michael Bloomberg,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. “They sent a clear message to lawmakers in Santa Fe that freedom must be protected.

“This is a hard-earned grassroots victory for law-abiding citizens against Bloomberg's intrusive and unenforceable attempt to restrict their rights.”
