Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good Morning ...I am a concealed and carry instructor and this question came up in my last class.
NM DPS cant or wont answer it for me
what are your thoughts.....and I wont hold you to them lol
I have reviewed the statute and it specifically states "in an AUTOMOBILE" or "OTHER private means of conveyance" As such, I suggest if the mode of transportation is a motorcycle than that would pertain.to a motorcycle. However, the intent of the law is not clear at all I suggest the best thing to do is contact your local elected official to the NM General Assembly and request them to get an Attorney General's Opinion on the matter.
That is the only way that for certain it can be determined what the intent of the law is
as it pertains to "Other CONVEYANCE"
I can get you a link for contact information to the General Assembly so you can find your elected representative
Only your elected rep may request and AG's opinion
ok....thanks so much for your input. I think I will call the Govs. office.
It is not something a private individual can do on their own
