Twenty-nine of New Mexico’s 33 Sheriffs signed a statement against a red flag law, universal background checks, and other gun controls being pushed by the state’s Democrat lawmakers.
State Rep. Joy Garratt (D) is pushing the red flag / gun confiscation law.
Garratt does not mention that Florida adopted just such a gun confiscation law after Parkland, and that law did nothing to prevent the August 26, 2018, Jacksonville Landing shooting, in which three were killed.
Florida’s gun confiscation law also failed to prevent the January 23, 2019, shooting at SunTrust Bank in Sebring, where five were killed.
California also had a red flag law for years, yet continues to have numerous high profile firearm-based attacks, including the November 7, 2018, attack on the Borderline Bar & Grill.
