ABQ City Council Votes Down Anti-Firearms Preemption Resolution!

On Wednesday evening, thanks to all of your calls and emails, the Albuquerque City Council voted down Resolution R-20-68 on a 5-4 vote.  This non-binding resolution would have urged the New Mexico Legislature to strip the firearms preemption clause from Article II, Section 6 (the Right to Keep and Bear Arms provision) of the State Constitution and put that revision to voters for approval.  Without preemption, cities like Albuquerque would be able to pass whatever firearms restrictions they want — including gun bans, magazine limits, licensing and registration schemes and prohibitions on carrying firearms on your person or in your car.
