New Mexico legislator proposing concealed handguns in bars

Posted: Updated:

New Mexico - A New Mexico legislator is proposing to allow people licensed to have a concealed handgun to take their weapons into a bar.

Under a 2010 law, people can bring their concealed handguns in New Mexico restaurants serving beer and wine unless the eatery prohibits firearms.

However, it remains illegal to take a concealed weapon into a bar or a restaurant with a full liquor license.

That's because those places serve whiskey and other liquor besides wine and beer.
