Senate Republican Leader Greg Baca and Senate Republican Whip Craig Brandt issue statement on banning of firearms at the Capitol

New rule change by Democratic leaders would ban all firearms from Capitol grounds 

SANTA FE – Today, Democrats on the Legislative Council voted to ban firearms on Capitol grounds. The Roundhouse is widely regarded as the most publicly accessible state Capitol in the nation. The resolution passed today is a radical shift in the approach to citizens’ rights in a public building. As adopted, the rule gives the Democratic Speaker of the House and Senate President Pro-Tempore the sole authority to authorize anyone without an exception to carry a firearm.
