Breaking: NRA Files Legal Challenge on Mandatory Waiting Periods in New Mexico!

Gun Rights

Today, the NRA filed a lawsuit in federal court challenging New Mexico’s recently enacted waiting period requirement on firearm purchases.  NRA-ILA Executive Director Randy Kozuch stated:

“The NRA fights every day in Washington, DC, state capitals, and when necessary, the legal arena, to protect the constitutional freedoms of law-abiding Americans and NRA members,” said Randy Kozuch, Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). “The State of New Mexico’s waiting period law is a clear violation of its citizens’ Second Amendment rights – needlessly delaying their ability to acquire a firearm for self-defense or sporting purposes. With this legal challenge, NRA is committed to seeing that this unconstitutional law be wiped from the state statutes.”

New Mexico’s mandatory waiting period law, HB 129, was passed and signed into law by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, during the 2024 30-day legislative session. HB 129 mandates a 7-calendar day waiting period on all firearms purchases, including for buyers who pass a NICS background check, with limited exceptions.
