Guns Now Allowed in N.M. Bars — With a Catch

Individuals with concealed-carry permits can now bring their guns into establishments in New Mexico that serve alcohol, but the state’s governor says they can’t drink if they do so, the Gov Monitor reported March 12.

A bill signed into law by Gov. Bill Richardson lifts a ban on guns in establishments with beer and wine licenses.

However, Richardson also ordered the state Department of Public Safety to amend its regulations to explicitly prohibit alcohol consumption while carrying a gun, and urged state lawmakers to support the move.
