Thank you to NRA members
who contacted the Department in favor of this adopted rule change
since public comment submitted overwhelmingly supported this policy
change. We also express our appreciation to state Representative
Zach Cook (R-Ruidoso), who sponsored legislation in past sessions of
the New Mexico Legislature to repeal this restriction, and to
Governor Susana Martinez (R) for her administration's support and
leadership on this issue.
