School Safety

5. What would you support to make New Mexico schools safer? Would that include changing New Mexico’s gun laws? If so, what specific changes to the gun laws would you support?

LISA SHIN:   I support voluntary and lawful possession of concealed weapons on school campuses, by trained faculty and staff.  We should ease existing firearm regulations so that trained personnel have the means to protect themselves and our students.  I support active shooter training drills.  We should strengthen our NICS (National Instant Background Check System), to ensure that our states release criminal and mental health records to the NICS.
