Taos County repeals ‘second amendment sanctuary’ declaration

New Mexico News

One of the New Mexico counties that declared itself a “second amendment sanctuary” has changed its mind. 

Taos County Commissioners voted Tuesday night to repeal their resolution from earlier this month. 

Taos was one of 26 New Mexico counties voting to oppose stricter gun-control laws during this year’s legislative session, calling them unconstitutional and unenforceable. 

Commissioner Gabriel Romero initially voted for the resolution but says after careful consideration he didn’t feel right about his vote, so he introduced the repeal. 

“Never in my 16 years have I felt like I had made the wrong decision like I did a couple of weeks ago,” he said.  With Romero’s deciding vote, the commission passed the repeal 3-2.
