Heinrich Statement on New State Order on Gun Violence

ALBUQUERQUE - U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.) issued the following statement on the state public health order on gun violence that was announced on Friday:
“The gun violence in New Mexico and across our country has had devastating impacts on families, communities, and our sense of safety. It’s why I led the effort on the first federal gun reform law passed in nearly three decades. There is more that can and should be done to stem the violence and ensure every American can feel safe at school, at the grocery store, or at the movie theatre. As we do that work, we need to focus on solutions that are constitutional and enforceable. That’s what will save lives.”
