The rest of the country should not have to adjust to our more stringent requirements. WE should be adjusting to the rest of the country's standards. There is a movement towards constitutional carry in other states. That is what we should be striving for, not this draconian anti-gun direction.
NM is the ONLY state I know of which requires re-certification every two years, two years ahead of renewal. Just because no other state does that, does not give NM justification to reject everyone else's standards. That is the height of hypocrisy.
