Posted on 10/20/2012 8:07:40 AM PDT by marktwain
Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Yesterday, the State Parks Division of the New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department held a public hearing to accept input on proposed amendments to Section 18.104.22.168 of the New Mexico Administrative Code, which includes a removal of the current ban on concealed handgun licensees carrying handguns in state parks.
A representative from the NRA-ILA testified in support of this rule change, along with several concealed handgun instructors from across the state. No one spoke in opposition to this proposal. The Department will continue to accept written comments on the measure until 5:00pm on October 31. Please send comments by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by USPS to April Alvarado, EMNRD State Parks Division, 1220 South St. Francis Drive; Santa Fe, NM 87505.
As you recall, state Representative Zach Cook (R-Ruidoso) sponsored, and Governor Susana Martinez (R) supported, legislation during this years thirty-day budget session to overturn this restriction but opponents of the measure successfully stalled and prevented its passage. (NRA-ILA previously reported on this legislation here.)
Now is your chance to express your support for this important policy change to win back your right to protect yourself in state parks!

What if you hold a Florida license and are a New Mexico resident? Is it still legal to carry in the state parks?
