Perfect Shot: Gov. Susana Martinez Renews Her Concealed Carry Permit

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez sure is near the top of my favorite governors list these days. While renewing her concealed carry permit recently, the first term governor received a perfect score and hit every target during the shooting portion of the exam with a .38 and .45 caliber handgun. Pure awesome. From the Las Cruces Sun-News:

New Mexico's pistol-packin' governor is a sure shot.

Gov. Susana Martinez received perfect scores on recertification for her concealed-carry permit over the weekend in Las Cruces. She scored 100 percent with both .38- and .45-caliber handguns, her staff said.

Martinez's permit to carry a concealed handgun, originally obtained in 2009, was extended for another two years.

She was a district attorney and a Republican candidate for governor when she first went through training and qualified to carry a concealed weapon. Her spokesman, Greg Blair, said Martinez's personal and professional experiences motivated her to arm herself.

Not only was she a prosecutor, but her husband, Chuck Franco, was undersheriff of Dona Ana County.

"Since she and Chuck both made careers out of taking on dangerous and violent criminals, she decided to get her concealed-carry permit for personal protection, especially when traveling alone or at night on the campaign trail," Blair said.

As governor, Martinez has a security detail, but she still chooses to carry a weapon, Blair said.
