The New Mexico news recap

December 18, 2012, 7:00 am
By Matthew Reichbach
Rep. Martin Heinrich, who will soon be Sen. Martin Heinrich, talked to the Albuquerque Journal about potential gun control laws.
“It’s no secret that I have always believed that law-abiding citizens should be able to own firearms for both sport and self-defense,” said Heinrich, who won election to the U.S. Senate in November and will be sworn into the upper chamber next month. “Like many law-abiding New Mexicans, I own guns for those very purposes. But I don’t need a 25-round clip for effective home defense, and I sure don’t need one for hunting. That’s just too much killing power. It defies common sense.”
Meanwhile, Michelle Lujan Grisham wants an immediate reinstatement of the assault weapons ban.

Sen. Tom Udall has opposed the assault weapons ban in the past but is now open to hearing about the change.

Rep. Ben Ray Lujan was closer to Heirnich and says there needs to be an examination.

Rep. Steve Pearce, the only Republican in New Mexico's delegation, says that new laws won't change anything when it comes to shootings.
