What you should know about New Mexico gun laws

LAS CRUCES — Saturday morning’s shooting on the University of New Mexico campus that left 19-year-old UNM student Brandon Travis dead and New Mexico State basketball player Mike Peake hospitalized has prompted many to speak out wondering about gun laws on New Mexico college campuses.

According to police reports obtained by the Las Cruces Sun NewsPeake — the NMSU basketball team’s starting power forward, who was in Albuquerque because the NMSU and UNM teams were scheduled to play Saturday — drove an Uber to the UNM campus on the pretense that he was meeting a girl he was dating would be texted.

According to witness statements, this turned out to be a trap in an affidavit. Instead, Peake was attacked by three UNM students – one of whom was armed with a baseball bat.
