    Are we not allowed to carry in these places? If there is ever a place I do want to carry it is on public transportation in ABQ. I have not carried there, nor I have visited the Rail Runner, but I would sure like the option.

    I don't understand why the BATF will not accept the NM CCW instead of a background check when purchasing guns as they do in several other states. They seem to be implying that something is wrong
    with our CCW regulations. Anybody know what it is?

    As to a wish list for revised CCW legislation, you have mentioned the top three. Only one gun at a time,
    not carrying in restaurants, and re-qualifying after two years are all provisions in the law that need to be eliminated.
    The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting!

    CCW changes

    Chili Man - Good thinking! I am not in an area where mass transit is important (we do have a mickey mouse local transit that is very useful, but hardly MASS transit). That is a problem both for local mass transit (bus and train), and a national problem as well (you cannot board a train nor bus with even cased weapons). Going to be a really hard sell, but every change is hard to get started, or it wouldn't be a problem to begin with. The time is racing by - only 6 more months to the 2009 Legislative session, so please - get in contact with your local Senator and Representative, and let them know that you are watching them, and expect some action for your needs. Getting Bills before committees is a long and complicated process, and a few clear and simple Bills beats a bunch of conflicting Bills to be sifted through and discarded. Having our representatives work together is one of the most useful ways to get real action.

    It would be nice to see them widen their reciprocity. Although currently in Georgia I'm originally from New Mexico and still visit family there. Since they don't accept Georgia or Florida non-resident it makes travel a little more difficult.

    back on line

    Sorry - I have been off line for some time. The time is whizzing by, with a legislative convening in about 3 1/2 months. I will get an update from my senator about the current status of proposed bills about NM CCW changes. The common carrier restrictions on bus/train CCW carry is an interesting problem, and not likely to be addressed this year, but worthy of asking about. I'll get back soon with more updated info, as I receive it.

    As far as I know, New Mexico only allows people to carry the largest caliber they qualify with, and anything smaller. In all the other states, if you pass the shooting portion of training, you can carry whatever you want, with some exceptions (ie., the largest caliber that can be legally carried in OK is a .45).

    Also, although the law was recently changed to allow concealed carry in establishments that sell alcohol for off premises consumption, open carry in those places is still illegal. That needs to be changed. And, so too does the prohibition on carrying more than one concealed gun at a time.

    Partly correct on qualifying calibers - added restriction is semi-auto vs revolver vs Derringer type - depends on both class of weapon, as well as the upper caliber limit qualified with (qualify with a semi-auto .45, and I believe you are good to go with anything). As to the Open Carry in alcohol sales for OFF premises consumption, I still haven't figured that one out - probably the "intimidation" factor, or ??? I have submitted a list to my senator to get a handle on what is being discussed or prepared for the up coming legislative session, suggestions such as yours (tattedupboy), and where in the "possible list" those suggestions may ly. I will post whatever info I receive that is pertinent and useful, as it comes in. We all need to have an open dialogue with our elected reps., if they are willing to listen. The more we talk, being polite and well informed, the better they know where their voters stand, and how much their actions in the legislature are being watched. What we cannot accomplish this session, has to wait until 2011!

    The lastest news that I have about NM CCW statute potential legislative changes/additions is "wait and see" how the up coming elections turn out. The players for the 2009 session are not known yet, and the makeup of the committees will be different from the past - all leading to too many unknowns for right now. More as we get beyond the election and into the pre-session scramble.

    Talking

    What are the chances of New Mexico changing the laws on allowing non citizen getting a CCW like other states.

    AussieRogue - Are you refering to a non-US citizen, or to an out-of-state citizen? And off the top of my head, I don't have the answer to either question, but will try to find it. I'm assuming you are refering to a non- US citizen. One direct avenue for you to check out, is go to the NM Dept. of Public Safety, as they control CCW in the state. http://www.dps.nm.org/faq/concealed_weapon.htm is what I have used in the past, but am having a problem tonight.
