State Representative Bill Rehm (R-ABQ) has pre-filed House Bill 32, legislation that would repeal Section 30-7-9 of the New Mexico Criminal Code, for the upcoming 2012 thirty-day legislative session. This section of state law limits the purchase of rifles and shotguns by New Mexico residents to their home state and contiguous states.
