Senator Payne decided to hold the bill over. Senator Boitano was not in committee.
This is a particularly difficult committee for us. Please contact Senators Nava, Eichenberg and Griego [contact information above] and ask them to support this common sense bill. Repealling NMSA 30-7-9 means we are not restricted to only buying long guns from contiguous states - ie, Tx, Ok, CO, AZ, UT - and can, for example buy a rifle in WY, MT, FL - whereever we choose.
This bill is similar to HB 148 that Rep. Rehm carried for us last year.
