Text NMGUNS to 484848 and stay connected for event updates!

When:

January 31, 2020, at 11:00 am, outside on the East Side of the Capitol Building.  (Get there early to park)

Why a Weekday?

1) So the legislators and the Govenor sees us. This is why a big numbers are needed.

2) So we can go inside and talk to our representatives or at least show up in their offices and leave a message.

Where:

State Capitol in Santa Fe  490 Old Santa Fe Trail, Santa Fe, NM 87501

Can I Open Carry?

Open carry is allowed inside and out, which includes long guns. Security has asked that you please consider not bringing long guns inside. The choice is ultimately yours, but we don’t want to give them any excuse to remove us from the building. The goal is to be heard by legislators, not feared. Being polite goes a lot further than aggression. Please, always be respectful.

Parking:

Parking is challenging at the State Capitol.

There is a Capitol Parking Lot just to the east of the roundhouse on Old Santa Fe Trail, but it hit or miss for parking. It is a 4-minute walk to the roundhouse.

The State Capital Parking Building at 485 Galisteo St, Santa Fe, NM 87501, and it is a 7-minute walk to the roundhouse.

 Public parking is available at the Sandoval Municipal Garage 216 West San Francisco Street (across the street from The Lensic). It is a 12-minute walk from the Capitol.

Additional metered parking is available throughout the downtown area.

Transportation:

There are busses and the RailRunner train that will take you to the capital, HOWEVER – no weapons allowed open or concealed.

Carpooling with others is a great suggestion, especially if you have issues walking. You can be dropped off right in front of the roundhouse.

Weather:

It’s New Mexico in January, so it could be snowing, hailing, windy, cold, raining, cloudy, sunny, warmish, or all of the above. Dress in layers. Predicted weater is 36 degrees.

Goal:

Peaceful assembly of gun owners who are TIRED of the New Mexico Representatives and the Governor taking our gun rights away. If you are looking for trouble or a physical fight, this is not the rally for you. Let’s be the shining example of good behavior! This rally is open to ALL lovers of the Second Amendment, political affiliation does not matter here.

Plan:

Assemble on the east side of the State Capitol Building. Please give your self plenty of time for parking and walking. Around 11:00 am we will start the rally. After, we will do a walk around the roundhouse to make sure we are seen from all angles. Then we will go inside (remember, no open carry in the building), and you are welcome to go to the Governor’s office to deliver some petitions with Pro-Gun Women, or you can find your Representatives office and encourage them to protect the Second Amendment. We will also go to the top ten anti-gun reps and tell them to vote no on gun bills. Remember, be calm and  respectful. We are gun owners, not violent left-wing fanatics.
