Ruidoso Residents Upset Over Local Gun Ban

From - Some Ruidoso residents are upset over a mayor's recent executive order banning guns on village property. KRQE-TV reported that residents plan to voice their outrage at a city council meeting today over an order issued by Mayor Ray Alborn banning firearms from village buildings except for law enforcement. They called the order illegal. Village officials said this ordinance was the result of a July case, when a resident at Village Hall had his gun removed by the police chief. Alborn said he took action as a protective measure.  Alborn said the village attorney assures him he has the right to make the executive order.  In 1986, New Mexico residents voted to amend the state constitution forbidding local regulation of firearms.  More News New Mexico
