County Commission Meeting
Jan 28 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
As you may know, Governor Lujan Grisham and Senator Cervantes and Representative Ely held a news conference on Jan. 8 in the Sheriff’s building in Las Cruces in support of the Extreme Risk Protection Order which is being introduced in this New Mexico legislative session.  

I hope to see you at the County Commission meeting Tuesday morning to urge the Commissioners to to pass a resolution telling the New Mexico Legislature that they are in favor of ERPO!   If you can’t attend, please email the Commissioners to pass the ERPO resolution.


Extreme Risk laws save lives:

When a person is in crisis and considering harming themselves or others, family members and law enforcement are often the first people to see the warning signs. Extreme Risk laws, sometimes referred to as “Red Flag” laws, empower loved ones or law enforcement to intervene in order to temporarily prevent someone in crisis from accessing firearms.

These laws can help de-escalate emergency situations and are a proven way to intervene before gun violence such as a firearm suicide or mass shooting takes more American lives. States around the country are increasingly turning to Extreme Risk laws as a common- sense way to help reduce gun violence.

 
Thank you.
