City commission meeting cut short after gun resolution fails
AZTEC, N.M. (AP) — A city commission meeting in northwest New Mexico was cut short after some attendees became unruly when officials rejected a resolution that would have barred the use of city resources to enforce certain gun laws.
The Farmington Daily Times reports the Aztec City Commission voted 3-2 Tuesday against a resolution declaring Aztec a preservation city for the Second Amendment.
Police ushered commissioners into a side room and asked people to leave after some attendees began hurling insults and demanding a recall election.
Several New Mexico counties and cities have recently made similar declarations in response to gun control measures.
A new law requires mandatory background checks on nearly all firearms sales. A bill that would keep people under protective orders for domestic violence from possessing firearms awaits the governor’s signature.
