Commissioners in all three counties took up the issue Tuesday with the resolution passing in Eddy County unanimously, and on 4-1 votes in San Juan and Lincoln Counties.

Residents in San Juan County packed out the commission meeting there Tuesday night with standing room only as Sheriff Shane Ferrari addressed the commission and the large crowd in attendance.

"The purpose is to get the attention of Albuquerque and Santa Fe," Sheriff Ferrari said. "As Sheriff, I want to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. As Sheriff, I want to keep guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens."

San Juan, Lincoln, and Eddy counties are just the latest to make the move and approve such resolutions. Quay, Union, Curry, and Socorro counties have all drafted resolutions that represent the latest push back against state firearms legislation.
