New Mexico: A bill to hold adults responsible for children with guns is in committee / by Charles Yeganian

The House Consumer & Public Affairs Committee is scheduled to hear HB 130 Wednesday, Feb 11. It would help protect children from loaded guns, often left where children can find them. The NRA, always against any gun restrictions, sent a late notice Monday to members to fight against this bill. We request concerned citizens advocate in support of this legislation.
