RUIDOSO, N.M. (KRQE) – There were powerful emotions and strong words at a city council meeting in Ruidoso, New Mexico Tuesday tonight.
Gun owners from down the road and from around the country, packed council chambers to give the mayor an earful about his executive order banning guns from village government buildings and meetings.
They ignored the ban to prove their point. Guns were very visible but the only shots fired were verbal and they were directed at the mayor.
“You are just as a much a tyrant for requiring someone to surrender their civil rights to carry a firearm in order to participate in their government as you are in asking them to surrender their right to vote or anything else,” Bob Wright said.
Speakers were given three minutes to speak and they did not hold back ,most of them with their guns holstered by their sides.
