Mike Bloomberg Statement on New Mexico Background Check Legislation Adoption
MAR. 08, 2019
New Mexico is the latest example of how much progress we can make on big issues even without action in Washington. Governor Lujan Grisham and the state legislature - with strong support from the state’s members of Moms Demand and Everytown for Gun Safety - have adopted background check legislation similar to the bill that Republicans in the U.S. Senate are now blocking. Congratulations to everyone involved. This is exactly the kind of bottom-up action that I will be doing more to support over the next two years across the country.

IN MIKE'S WORDS
We believe that tomorrow can be better than today. And we know that it’s up to us to make it so.
