  1. Dear New Mexico NRA Member: It was a busy end of the week, and will be a packed week ahead on mostly-bad firearm-related bills, with one bright spot for pro-Second Amendment legislation. Senate Bill 224 by Sen. Sedillo Lopez (D-ABQ) The Senate Health & Public Affairs Committee advanced this bill on a 4-2 vote late Friday, after deleting language from the measure which limited the authorized use of firearms by minors to those 12 years of age or older who had completed a training course. It remains unclear how the legislation would impact events like 4-H, YHEC and other compe
  2. Last Friday, important emergency powers legislation, House Bill 504, was introduced and referred to the House Judiciary Committee for consideration. The committee has scheduled this legislation for a hearing tomorrow and committee members need to hear from you now! Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 504. House Bill 504 provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. HB 504 also prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seiz
  3. On Friday, February 12th, Utah’s Governor Spencer Cox signed a bill making Constitutional Carry the law in Utah. On Thursday, February 18th, Governor Greg Gianforte’s first priority for this legislative session has been signing a Constitutional Carry/eliminating gun-free zone, and it is now on his desk. That might not be all this year. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee has also announced that Constitutional Carry is a priority for him this year. On Monday, February 15th, Indiana’s House Public Policy Committee voted by 9-to-3 on Constitutional Carry. We have heard that there ar
  4. A trio of computer scientists from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York recently published research detailing a potential AI intervention for murder: an ethical lockout. The big idea here is to stop mass shootings and other ethically incorrect uses for firearms through the development of an AI that can recognize intent, judge whether it’s ethical use, and ultimately render a firearm inert if a user tries to ready it for improper fire. That sounds like a lofty goal, in fact the researchers themselves refer to it as a “blue sky” idea, but the technology to make it possible
  5. Last week, the Biden administration promised gun control groups that it will soon roll out a massive push for limits on firearm purchases and other measures. President Biden reiterated that promise on Sunday. And the television networks aren’t waiting to lay the groundwork for this effort. CBS is in a full-court press for gun control on its evening entertainment television shows. The bad guys are always white supremacists who use machine guns — supposedly AR-15s — to commit mass public shootings. Criminals in Mexico supposedly get machine guns from the United States. A father’s desire to
  6. There’ve been gun control bills been introduced by Democrats in Congress this year, but so far none of them have seen any progress. One piece of legislation that’s expected to be a priority for anti-gun lawmakers is H.R. 748 and its Senate companion, S. 190, which would establish a new federal law requiring gun owners to keep their firearms locked up unless they were being used or “under the control” of the gun owner. While the text of the legislation isn’t yet available, the intent of the bill, according to Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal, is to require “households with children under
  7. To paraphrase an old alleged Chinese curse and merge it with Thomas Paine (The American Crisis, 1776): we live in interesting times that try men's souls! And we do. There's no doubt about it! With all the uncertainty, day to day danger as we lose right after right, even just walking down the street is a potential risk. We constantly flirt with unknown danger as we dance with the possibility of encountering pure hate and evil at a moment's notice. Just being in a mall, a shop, a restaurant, virtually anywhere, even at home, is without question a lot more dangerous than at any time in many decad
  8. Sorry, but I thought this was just to funny to pass up... Let alone how true...
  9. The United States is dangerously close to Congress calling “a convention for proposing amendments” under Article V of the U.S. Constitution — otherwise known as a constitutional convention, convention of the states, or Article V convention (A5C) — based on a new scheme for aggregating (counting and combining) applications submitted by state legislatures. Article V provides two methods for proposing amendments to the Constitution. The first method states, “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses [the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate] shall deem it necessary, shall pro
  10. Video Extra Proposed new bill would create national firearm registry, require licenses - Gun Owners of America spokesperson Antonia Okafor Cover argues the bill is ‘unconstitutional’ on ‘Fox & Friends Weekend.’ A Democratic-sponsored proposal to create a public gun registry poses some dangerous potential risks, including to Second Amendment rights, law enforcement officers are warning. The bill in Congress represents a "gross intrusion on your rights and your protections," Kevin Hassett, president of the Retired Police Association of the State of New York, told
