It appears that nobody has yet to suffer eternal damnation for Sunday morning alcohol sales in other states. Pass the law already.

Once again, the rights of the responsible people are being abridged because of the behaviors of the irresponsible few.

Stop infringing on my ability to enjoy a brunch just because there are some that cannot control themselves.

Get rid of this archaic law, and then pass a law that locks up a repeat DUI offender for a good long time. with no wiggle room written into it.

You do the crime, you do the time. No exceptions.

And poor millionaire Ritter loses another $100 in booze sales. Ah, the Mesilla Cartel, they ALWAYS get their way!

Bring back prohibition!

Yeah, I don't understand why people just can't have Mimosas and Champagne and Rum and cokes and Vodka tonics and scotch and waters with their eggs in the morning.
Pancakes and tequila shots, yum.
...You know what they say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day.
What's a drink gonna cost at a Double Eagle Brunch?$42.50?

Alright why don't they move it back to 11 thats when most restaurants open on Sunday. Then we are not serving alcohol at 10am thats just to early in my opinion.

For Gods sake let people make their own decisions & get rid of the "nanny state" appraoch to everything. Progessive thinking defeats freedom of choice. They DO NOT know what is good for everyone.

Interesting argument against changing the time to earlier in the morning as it's too early to be serving alcohol on a Sunday morning... yet if you drink communion wine in church on Sunday morning you are paying testament to the lord...

What if the restaurants served those stale little crackers with the Mimosas and called it a "communion brunch"? OR-

What if we joined the 21st Century and got rid of ridiculous blue laws altogether?

People are going to drink alcohol on Sunday mornings, whether the law says they can or not - if not in a bar or restaurant, it will be somewhere else. Change this silly law and let people make their own decisions and choices. Like I have stated in prior posts, the laws do exist for us hard-working, law-abiding citizens. Personally, I don't drink alcohol in the mornings or early-afternoons, but that's my choice.

You know who drinks alcohol with breakfast?(Unless you're camping or something like that, you know..an exception)

ALCOHOLICS.

They're really working hard to turn the Mesilla Plaza back into the old west, let me tell you...

Buddy Ritter needs to take care of his lisp and stop trying to sell another $400 booze before noon.

If you're old enough to drink, why is it the states issue when you choose to do it? I'll buy my liquor Saturday night and be drunk all through the morning.

It really doesn't make any sense. Why does the state have to babysit when adults of legal drinking age can "purchase" (not drink, by the way you can still do that whenever)alcohol?
This whole thing stems from church and religious bullshit. If you get trashed and go to church, its God you have to answer to, not big brother.

How about more jobs? Lower fuel/food costs? Education? Legislature should be worrying about things that actually matter.

Ryan and Ritter need to stop being hypocrites about wanting to make a few extra bucks.
Anything that would keep drunks off of New Mexico's roads a few more hours is a plus.
If people want to drink on Sunday morning, go to Texas or Arizona.
The People's Republic of La Mesilla is part of what's wrong with Dona Ana County. They should have stayed in Mexico in 1849.

Why do we need alcohol sales on Sunday anyways? Can't you stock up for your games on Sat? Is it that big a deal you have to go to a sports bars for beer and a game? The thing is, is keeping drunks off the road etc etc. I have no problem with a total ban on all alcohol sales on Sunday period. You have 6 other days to kill your liver. Leave Sunday out of it.
And yes I do enjoy a cold beer now and then, usually at home.
