New Mexico Governor Suspends Law Abiding Citizens From Carrying In Albuquerque

The wacko knows it will face legal challenges, yet, still did it

New Mexico governor temporarily suspends open, concealed carry across Albuquerque: ‘Violence at every turn’

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, issued an emergency order on Friday suspending the right to carry guns in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding Bernalillo County for at least 30 days following recent instances of gun violence.

The governor said she expects the order to face legal challenges but that she believed she needed to act in response to recent gun-related deaths, such as an 11-year-old boy who was shot and killed outside a minor league baseball stadium earlier this week.

“When New Mexicans are afraid to be in crowds, to take their kids to school, to leave a baseball game — when their very right to exist is threatened by the prospect of violence at every turn — something is very wrong,” Lujan Grisham said in a statement.

The suspension was classified as an emergency public health order, and applies to open and concealed carry in most public places, excluding police and licensed security guards. The restriction is connected to a threshold for violent crime rates met only by the Albuquerque area.

So, what happens when the crime rate does not go down, because the vast majority of the shootings are by people who do not lawfully own the firearm, meaning no background check. Darn sure haven’t gone through the process of obtaining a concealed carry permit. Who fired the shots at the baseball game? No one knows at this point. No arrests, no person of interest. The only thing they know was that it was road rage and it was a newer black Dodge Durango SRT.

Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen said in a statement Friday night that he has concerns about the order but is prepared to cooperate to address gun violence.

“While I understand and appreciate the urgency, the temporary ban challenges the foundation of our constitution, which I swore an oath to uphold,” Allen said. “I am wary of placing my deputies in positions that could lead to civil liability conflicts, as well as the potential risks posed by prohibiting law-abiding citizens from their constitutional right to self-defense.”

And there will be suits.

State Sen. Greg Baca, the Senate’s top-ranked Republican, denounced the governor’s firearm suspension.

“A child is murdered, the perpetrator is still on the loose, and what does the governor do? She … targets law-abiding citizens with an unconstitutional gun order,” Baca said.

Even a victim right’s advocacy group is unimpressed. Why not crack down on the criminals?

Miranda Viscoli, co-president of New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, praised the governor’s order as necessary in order to reduce gun violence.

“If it saves one life, then it’s worth doing,” Viscoli said.

Will it save one life? Because most shootings are not from people who acquired their firearms lawfully. This sounds more like a test run for long term restrictions on law abiding citizens, all while criminals run rampant under softish on crime Democrat policies.

    How fascist of the governor.

  2. H says:

    Gun Grabbers target Hunter Biden for lying on his firearm permit application !
    Is he being unfairly targeted just because of politics?
    Should all who lied about drug use be arrested?

  3. wildman says:

    who is she protecting? the criminals?

  4. unklc says:

    Lefties/democrats are fascists/socialists/commies/etc., it appears to be in their dna.
    Hunter lied on a federal form, that is a felony as described on the Form 4473 he filled out and signed. If you enact a law, it should be enforced equally and fairly. We should not have selective law enforcement. However, it appears that selective enforcement is the policy of the Brandon regime. No or minor enforcement for the favored [J6 v. BLM/Antifa anyone?], open use of political lawfare, and special treatment for ‘contributors’, friends and relatives. Maybe we are headed for the 4th Riech?

    Maybe Grisham should pay attention and learn something instead of running her whore mouth.

    U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth gave preliminary approval to a $5.1 million class action settlement between Washington, D.C., and gun owners who were arrested under laws that have since been found to violate the Second Amendment, the Washington Post reports. Lamberth had ruled in September 2021 that D.C. arrested, jailed, prosecuted and seized guns from six people “based on an unconstitutional set of laws” and violated their Second Amendment rights. The laws — a ban on carrying handguns outside the home and others that effectively banned nonresidents from carrying guns at all in D.C. — have since been struck down in federal court.

    Wow, there is just a whole lot of stupid in her statements on this. What she says I would expect to come out of the mouth of some vapid beauty queen contestant or one of the knobs on The View. Not only is she a wannabe dictator (But Trump!!), she’s also an abject moron. A very dangerous combination that infects a good portion of the democrat party.

  7. alanstorm says:

    Democrats called Trump a dictator (without any evidence ever given), but the only ones actually ACTING like dictators are Democrats.

  8. Jl says:

    “New Mexico criminals excited to hear no one will be armed for entire month”.

  9. JimS says:

    That old saw “if it saves one life….” is dangerous. And dangerous to leftards’ beliefs as well. Throw all illegals out immediately… many are drunk drivers, and predators, so if it saves one life…. (Personally, I’d go with that one.)
    There are far too many draconian things that could be justified with the “just one life” argument.

  10. Professor Hale says:

    The most basic and important human right is self preservation. If you don’t have that, you have nothing. Any government or advocacy group that resists access to self defense is against basic human rights. Nothing they are for is important or credible in the face of that.

    A thought often occurs to me = “are the actions and decisions made by US politicians the exact same as would come from a Foreign enemy setting up stronghold here to America” and the answer in this case is a solid YES. This is exactly the first thing an enemy to USA would do. It’s what all evil dictators in history have already done.

      As soon as I heard this nonsense the first thing that came to my mind are all the times I read dowd screaming about how Republicans are fascists I laughed to myself. Then I thought how like what you said every evil dictator in the world starts out with gun confiscation.

      We’re getting nearer election and you know they’re gonna either come out with a new COVID or some other emergency act to restrict our rights they’re also gonna start stealing the election again by sealing ballots or by stopping us from voting. I noticed that the Democrats were already starting to fidget around with how did deny RFK the election in the primaries. They’re just getting that gun idea out of the way so that it won’t come as a complete surprise. We really need to start preparing to defend ourselves folks in case you haven’t noticed. I know every time I say something like this dowd makes fun of me but it’s the truth it’s becoming more obvious day by day.
