Weapons Related Charges

Albuquerque gun laws

Aggressive police and prosecutors would have you believe guns are almost illegal in New Mexico.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Consider this:
  • You need no permit to own, purchase or carry a rifle or shotgun.
  • You do not have to register or license a rifle or shotgun.
  • You need no permit to purchase or own a handgun.
  • You do not have to register a handgun.
  • You man obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun.
  • There is no waiting period to purchase a firearm.
  • It is not illegal to carry a weapon on your property, including a private automobile.
