New Mexico’s House Democrats are considering gun control measures, including an “assault weapons” ban and a two-week waiting period for gun purchases, similar to California’s regulations.

These proposals align with Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s push for stricter controls and an expansion of gun-free zones.

The bills have passed committee review, including the ban on semi-automatic rifles with magazines limited to 10 rounds.

However, the effectiveness of these measures in preventing mass shootings is questioned, as evidenced by past incidents, such as the Parkland and Virginia Tech shootings.

Despite California’s longstanding “assault weapons” ban, the state led the nation in “active shooter incidents” in 2021.
