    Terrific news that it's gone for this year -- very sad that there were two votes opposed to tabling. Where can we look up the votes? It's interesting the article says there were long lines both in favor and opposed: googling the bill before the hearing, the only places I saw any mention of it were pro-gun sites and a few sites dedicated to following all legislative action. Nothing in the news, no anti-gun sites.

    Here's the committee that just tabled HB 402

    Representative Eliseo Lee Alcon Chair
    Representative Patricia Roybal Caballero Vice Chair
    Representative Thomas A. Anderson Member
    Representative Gail Chasey Member
    Representative Jason C. Harper Member

    Anderson and Harper are the only Republicans. Anderson is my rep for my district so I've eMailed him for a vote tally. That means one of those Democrats stepped up and did the right thing. I'll post more when I get it.

    According to the folks at Caliber's Shooting Range here in Albuquerque the three votes to table came from:


    Chairman Eliseo Alcon
    eliseo.alcon@nmlegis.gov
    (505) 986-4844

    Rep. Tom Anderson
    thomas.anderson@nmlegis.gov
    (505) 986-4451

    Rep. Jason Harper
    JasonHarperNM@gmail.com
    (505) 986-4254

    Mr. Alcon was the lone Democrat to do the right thing here. Please contact him and thank him for his support of New Mexicans' civil liberty.

    Glad to hear this bill was tabled but beware that comments afterward from the Representative who introduced this bill says he will try again. I wonder where in the world we find these liberal knuckleheads in this state and elect them to office. I emailed my representative on this bill and said if it passed I would move across the state line to Texas.

    I believe that Steven Easley (the bill's author) is a Santa Fe dem. This state is slowly becoming californicated.

    Santa Fe has always been loaded with wackadoos. It's a haven for wackjobs with lots of money. A year ago, they had people protesting municipal wifi because they claimed that the rf waves were causing them brain issues.

    Thankfully, Albuquerque has the majority population wise.

    I think more than a few RF waves have been directed at The Roundhouse lately. :rolleyes:

    A couple of friends went to Santa Fe for the hearings and reported it was pretty much a railroad to try to get the bill passed. Let's be sure to email the friends we apparently still have in SF and thank them, and let them know we will support those who support 2A.

    I lived in NM for more than 30 years until I moved to AZ 3 years ago. NM has always been pro gun but has always been a democrat stronghold. Time to vote them out while you have a good Republican Governor.

    I wish we could. Too many liberals there, and more coming in from Cali every day. It used to be a Texas immigrant was snubbed, but now they seem to be going after the Cali transplants. They have prettty much ruined California, and got tired of that bull**** and left, but now they're trying the same stuff in New Mexico. :cuss:

    I'm not sure how true our gov is nowadays, what with her supporting the universal background checks.

    As much as I love New Mexico, I do enjoy the freedom of living in Arizona.
