Albuquerque city councilors seek new vote on firearms provision

Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Two Albuquerque city councilors are asking for a re-vote on a state constitution amendment surrounding gun rights.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, a 1986 voter-approved amendment to the New Mexico Constitution says that no city or county governments can enact Second Amendment gun-related restrictions. Councilors Diane Gibson and Isaac Benton want the state legislature to put the issue back before voters.

The council is set to vote on the issue next month.
