New Mexico: House Bill 77 Re-Incarnated – Same Song, Second Verse: Committee Substitute Still Contains Obama-Style Ban/Regulation Of Private Gun Transfers
Posted on February 2, 2013
House Bill 77, state Representative Miguel Garcia's sweeping gun control bill to regulate all private gun transfers, establish a state registry of lawful firearms owners and tax legal gun purchasers will be heard by the House Judiciary Committee on Monday, January 28, at 1:30 pm or upon adjournment of the House in Room 309 of the State Capitol in Santa Fe.
Gun control advocates are wasting no time. On the second day of the sixty-day legislative session in Santa Fe, Representative Miguel Garcia (D-ABQ) introduced House Bill 77, imposing sweeping restrictions on firearms sales in the State of New Mexico.
Last night, due to an 8-8 tie vote, the House Judiciary Committee failed to advance House Bill 77, state Representative Miguel Garcia's sweeping gun control bill to end almost all private firearm transfers in New Mexico. This fight is far from over because supporters of HB 77 are continuing to work on amending the bill in an attempt to move it forward as soon as possible! Please thank the eight committee members who stood with law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen and politely register your displeasure with those who did not.
