1324 Line Gun Law Loophole

December 13, 2019 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel examine a law that went into effect in July. The law lets judges order guns taken away from accused domestic violence offenders, but as KRQE-TV reports, it’s lightly used and has a big loophole. The panel debates the impetus behind the law and whether the loophole can be effectively closed or if the measure is fundamentally flawed.

Line Panelists:
Janice Arnold-Jones, former state representative
Dan Foley, former state representative
Eric Griego, former NM state senator
Serge Martinez, professor, UNM School of Law

The Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe recently hosted a stage reading of “Sovereignty,” which has gained attention for its dual-timeline exploration of the Cherokee Nation’s case before the U.S. Supreme Court. Correspondent Antonia Gonzales spoke with Nagle at the New Mexico PBS studios.
