Twenty-nine New Mexico sheriffs oppose several new gun control laws introduced by the New Mexico state legislature.
“You’re just taking guns out of law-abiding citizen’s hands,” Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton. “This is not going to affect the criminals out there. They’re going to be able to get guns and they do not follow the law.”
Lea County Sheriff Corey Helton is one of dozens of sheriffs who signed this statement by the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association targeting four gun related bills as ineffective.
Representative Garratt said the bills don’t infringe upon the second amendment, but Helton insists there’s enough effective laws on the books and these new measures are either redundant or unconstitutional.
“I’m proud to say I’m a constitutional sheriff and I’m just not going to enforce an unconstitutional law,” Helton said. “My oath prevents me from doing that.”
