SANTA FE, NM – Anti-gun lawmakers in New Mexico are wasting no time in their attempt to erode your Second Amendment rights. Senator Linda M. Lopez (D – 11) has pre-filed the “Firearms and Ammunition Tax Act” – a bill that seeks to impose an 11% excise tax on the sale of firearms, suppressors, ammunition, and “firearm precursor parts”. It will be assigned a bill number after the legislature convenes on Tuesday, January 16th.
If enacted, Sen. Lopez’ unconstitutional tax would bring New Mexico in line with California, whose new 11% tax on firearm and ammunition sales is set to commence on July 1, 2024. The goal of this type of legislation is not to enhance public safety, but rather to make it more burdensome and expensive for law-abiding citizens to exercise their Constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights.

The American Suppressor Association (ASA) is the unified voice of the suppressor community. We exist for one reason and one reason only: to fight for pro-suppressor reform nationwide.
The ability of the American Suppressor Association to fight for pro-suppressor reform is tied directly to our ability to fundraise. Since the ASA’s formation in 2011, we have helped 3 states legalize suppressor ownership, 19 states legalize suppressor hunting, and defeated attempts to ban suppressors in 2 states. This would not have happened without your support. Join us in the fight to help protect and expand your right to own and use suppressors by becoming an ASA Member at www.ASAMember.com.
