The mayor and City Council voted to table the resolution indefinitely, which translates into scheduling a work session or two with more public participation and look for authentic solutions,” said Betty Bishop Chairman of the Doña Ana County Republican Party, “Hopefully, the next solution won’t attempt to violate any Constitutionally protected rights, ” Bishop concluded.

A number of protesters attended the impromptu rally after hearing about it on Facebook just the evening before, others joined the rally after walking by and hearing about the attack on the Second Amendment.
