THEY DID IT!!! New Mexico is the 18th state to adopt a red flag law. @GovMLG just signed the Extreme Risk Firearm Protection Order Act, enabling law enforcement to petition a court for an order to temporarily remove guns from a person in crisis. #nmleg #nmpol
After working for years to pass gun safety laws in New Mexico - and to change the makeup of the statehouse - @MomsDemand volunteers helped elect a gun sense legislature and Governor in 2018. In 2019, New Mexico became the 21st state to require background checks on all gun sales.
Of the 18 states and the District of Columbia that have now passed extreme risk legislation, 13 of these bills were passed since the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida in 2018.

Next: Virginia’s General Assembly will hold final votes on an extreme risk bill as soon as this week.
