The New Mexico House of Representatives is trying to pass a resolution banning guns in the House of Representatives, the resolution reads:
AMENDING THE HOUSE RULES TO PROHIBIT THE CARRYING OF FIREARMS IN THE HOUSE.
WHEREAS, House Rule 24-1 provides that the rules of the house of representatives may be amended by a two-thirds’ vote of all the members of the house or by a majority vote of the members of the house upon the recommendation of the house rules and order of business committee;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO that a new house rule be adopted to read:
“No person carrying a firearm, except a law enforcement officer, shall be permitted to enter the house chamber, galleries, lounge, hallways or committee rooms.”.
This resolution is not a big deal? Maybe not in itself at first, but it is the drip, drip, drip that erodes our rights and freedoms. As always, this is the Left and hardcore Democrat’s tactic…
Remember, our state Constitution says:
No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense, for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons. No municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.
– Article 1. Sec 6. of NM State Constitution
Take action, contact the House!
Contact your representative (use the easy search tool here) and tell him or her that you OPPOSE Resolution 3.
Why should we care? Because banning guns shouldn’t be a high priority. Who is afraid of mere inanimate objects? As the Democrats are always saying, “If you don’t want [one], don’t get [one].” Let the rest of us do as we choose– yhere’s no need to be paranoid because of the presence of a few guns.
