Senator Tom Udall, a good friend, wants people who have concealed weapon permits from all over the United States to be able to carry them in New Mexico without meeting our own laws for doing so. WTF!
So now instead of just your fellow New Mexican packing a 9 mm Glock in the movie theater as he sits next to your child, you can also have itchy trigger fingers from Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas...etc. etc. too!
Will someone explain to me his reasoning here? Is his Senate seat vulnerable? I didn't think so. Would it be if he had voted as Senator Bingaman to not allow this? I don't think so. Is he just being paranoid about the gun lobby? Probably.
At least the measure is not law yet. I will be watching his vote when it comes up again.
