WE WON! THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR SENDING EMAILS AND CALLING YOUR
SENATORS. THANKS TO NM SENATORS WHO HELPED KILL HB 77. According to krqe.com,
"Failing upon adjournment [of the 2013 legislative session] was a proposal to expand background checks of people buying
firearms from private sellers at gun shows. The Senate debated the measure but it died
as opponents offered repeated amendments to run out the clock on the session."
