Legislature Takes Up New Gun Control Proposals

1232 Gun Control Legislation

February 8, 2019 – New Mexico is not insulated from gun violence, and mass shootings. It was just a little over a year ago two students were shot at killed at Aztec High School. In response, lawmakers this year are proposing a slew of new gun control measures, from restrictions on who can have guns to how background checks are carried out. But even with a stronger democratic majority, these bills will no doubt face tough opposition in both the House and Senate. New Mexico in Focus Correspondent Gwyneth Doland talks with lawmakers about the pros and cons of these proposals and how they might all fare during this year’s 60-day session.

September 1, 2017 – The tragic shooting at a public library in Clovis, New Mexico, left two people dead and four injured.  That the shooter appears to have been a troubled 16-year-old who seems to have struck out at random just adds to the horror.  Host Gene Grant and this week’s Line panelists look at the tragedy and weigh in with opinions on the safety of those who interact with the public on a daily basis, availability of adequate behavioral health services, and the question of access to guns.
