Default New Mexico Laws & Regulations?

Hey I don't know where to look or what to trust as far as the laws go here in New Mexico, does anyone know or can provide a link to the proper site? Thanks.

2011 New Mexico Statutes
Chapter 30: Criminal Offenses
Article 1: General Provisions, 30-1-1 through 30-1-15
Section 30-1-12: Definitions.

B. "deadly weapon" means any firearm, whether loaded or unloaded; or any weapon which is capable of producing death or great bodily harm, including but not restricted to any types of daggers, brass knuckles, switchblade knives, bowie knives, poniards, butcher knives, dirk knives and all such weapons with which dangerous cuts can be given, or with which dangerous thrusts can be inflicted, including swordcanes, and any kind of sharp pointed canes, also slingshots, slung shots,bludgeons; or any other weapons with which dangerous wounds can be inflicted.

So, like most places they aren't keen on them. Which means; Be Cool and don't act a Fool. A lot of people in the more rural parts of NM traditionally hunt with them to fill the pot. So, I would not sweat it too much.

Also this.
It's just a child's toy. Don't be scared.
