New Mexico House Committee Approves Restaurant Carry Bill!

On Tuesday, February 3, the House Business & Industry Committee unanimously approved House Bill 105, NRA-backed legislation sponsored by State Representative John Heaton (D-Carlsbad).

HB 105 would permit Concealed Handgun Licensees to protect themselves in establishments that are licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises IF the establishment derives more than 60% of their annual gross receipts from the sale of food. Thanks go out to the supporters of the measure who attended the hearing and provided clear, concise, and compelling testimony to the committee!

Currently, concealed carry permit holders dining in restaurants that serve alcohol must leave their firearm at home or locked in their vehicle, where it is at risk of being stolen. Despite passing a background check and possessing a state issued permit to carry, law-abiding permit holders are forced to give up their right to self-defense when dining in establishments that serve alcohol. The need for this legislation is clear.

HB 105 now moves to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration. NRA-ILA will keep you posted on the date, time and location of future hearings on the bill. The volume of phone calls and emails in support of HB 105 has been enormous. With the legislative session in full swing and many lawmakers working around the clock with little or no staff assistance, it’s time to target our message for optimum effectiveness!

If you reside in the district of one of the House Judiciary Committee members, please contact that committee member TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 105. Contact information for committee members can be found below. If sending an email, make sure you state your support for HB 105 in the subject line and keep the message short. We recommend putting your name and address at the end of your message so that he or she knows you are a constituent.

If you do not reside in the district of one of the House Judiciary Committee members, please contact your State Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 105 if the bill comes to the House floor for a vote. A list of House members and their phone and email contact information can be found by visiting New Mexico Legislature. If sending an email, make sure you state your support for HB 105 in the subject line and keep the message short.

URGENT update

Folks there is still time. The Governor can still sign SB 608 and SB 507 IF THEY ARE BROUGHT TO HIS DESK BY FRIDAY at 1200PM. Call Bill Hume at 505-476-2200 and POLITELY URGE him to hand carry them to the Governor.
