"Universal Background Checks"
Stopped in New Mexico Legislature

Michael Bloomberg has continued to pump money into state politics to find ways to infringe on the Second Amendment. His latest attempt was stopped in New Mexico on Monday, 13 March, 2017. A key vote against the measure came form Representative Eliseo Alcon (D) Milan.


A legislative committee on Monday effectively killed a bill to expand background checks for gun purchases – an issue that drew large crowds to the Capitol as well as big campaign contributions and intense lobbying and advertising.

The House Judiciary Committee voted 7-6 to table House Bill 548 after a lengthy hearing. It marked the defeat of the most recent gun-control bill sponsored by Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard, D-Los Alamos.

Democrat Eliseo Alcon of Milan joined the six Republicans on the panel to stop the measure, which would have required background checks on all sales of firearms at gun shows and from advertisements on the internet or print publications.

Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund spent $250,000 in New Mexico elections in 2016. .......

It's a pity so much needs spent to try and prevent the likes of Bloomberg from trying to infringe on the Second Amendment, but fortunately this attempt to introduce extra background checks has been quashed, just. It took one right-thinking Democrat to enable the kill vote, by seeing that as the right thing to do. Unfortunately Bloomberg continues to pump money into anti-rights schemes all over the country in his mission to try and disarm good people.
