Let's talk about gun laws
Let’s Talk New Mexico 2/15 8am: Gun violence has more than doubled in New Mexico since 2014. Deaths of children in 2023 led to the Governor’s contentious public health order to keep guns out of many public places. The state legislature is now following her lead with several bills to restrict firearms and access – from raising the age to purchase a gun and increasing waiting periods to banning some semi-automatic weapons.
On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico we’ll discuss gun safety, access, and the proposed new gun legislation making its way through the legislature. Are you fed up with gun violence and ready to make more drastic moves to curb it? Are you a gun owner who thinks there are better ways to stop violence, or, maybe you’re onboard with more state control? We want to hear from you.
