The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports the Carlsbad City Council has scheduled a special meeting Thursday to consider declaring the city a sanctuary for the Second Amendment.

Several New Mexico counties and cities have made similar declarations in response to a series of gun control measures that have gone before state lawmakers.

Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a bill earlier this month that expands mandatory background checks on firearm sales.

The Legislature has also passed a bill that ensures people under protective orders for domestic violence relinquish their guns.

Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway says the resolution seeks clarify the city's opposition.
