New Mexico assault weapons ban killed in committee

A House committee has tabled an effort to ban assault weapons and large-capacity magazines.

The five-member House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee voted 3-2 to table the bill  late Thursday after the committee chair, Rep. Eliseo Alcon, D-Milan, joined the committee?s two Republicans in opposition.

Alcon said he voted against the bill because he believed the federal government would take action on the assault-style weapons soon, and so the proposed New Mexico regulation should be deferred.

For our purposes, "not now" is good enough.
