Lopez is an idiot of a lawyer.
Here's my post to that rag
"If Stephanie Lopez is the county attorney... Lord help you all. "According to state law, residents are not allowed to carry a gun out in the open," Lopez said. Lopez couldn't be more wrong. Not only residents, but any US Citizen within the state boundaries may open carry sidearms. (New Mexico Constitution, Art 2 Sec. 6)
Quoting Lopez again: ""Say I was licensed to have a gun. I could have it at home for protection, but if I didn't have that concealed carry (permit) I wouldn't be authorized to take it with me,"
There is no 'license to have a gun' in NM. The permit is to conceal, not to carry. What are they teaching these yo-yo's in Law Schools these days? If Lopez isn't a recent import from someplace else... she's incompetent to address NM gun law. New Mexico has been an Open Carry state since 1911 and prior... 'same as Arizona. The NM CCW 'Permit' didn't even exist prior to 2004."
Lopez is a product of statist indoctrination. She has no real concept of a Right.
