Twenty-nine New Mexico sheriffs oppose several new gun control laws introduced by the New Mexico state legislature.

“You’re just taking guns out of law-abiding citizen’s hands,” Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton. “This is not going to affect the criminals out there. They’re going to be able to get guns and they do not follow the law.”

Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton is one of dozens of sheriffs who signed this statement by the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association targeting four gun related bills as ineffective.

A common sense statement from Sheriff Helton. Wish more people thought that way.

The new governor would not allow LEOs to wear firearms at her inauguration.

What are the odds that she didn't have some sort of armed security at the event, even if they were concealed the entire time?
