‘Red Flag Law’ Passes NM House

The proposed “red flag law” passed in the New Mexico House last night. The bill was approved by a vote of 39 to 31, with several Democrats joining Republican lawmakers in opposition to the proposal. The bill would allow officers to petition a state district court to order the temporary surrender of firearms if a person is determined to be a danger to themselves or others. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham says she plans on signing the bill into law.
