We support all laws aimed at ending gun violence. In the 2023 legislative session, we are backing Representative Andrea Romero’s bills that require a 14-day waiting period for firearms sales (HB-100) and prohibit large-capacity magazines and assault weapons (HB-101).
We are also advocating for Representative Patricia Roybal Caballero’s bill restricting large capacity gun magazines to a limit of nine bullets (HB-50). Representative Bill Rehm is filing several bills that institute new or stricter penalties for repeat violent criminals.
There are likely to be additional bills introduced in the legislature this session and we are watching. Our longtime partner, New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, is a leader in this area.
