MLG’s latest unconstitutional power grab: suspend 2nd Amendment for 30 days

With the end of COVID emergencies nationwide (and in New Mexico) by spring of 2023, people have been waiting to see what the next “public health emergency” would be and where it would take place. Some believed it would be on the environment and climate. Others thought another round of COVID would bring it on, but as it turns out the issue is guns and the location is New Mexico. where Michelle Lujan Grisham has imposed a 30 day ban on carrying a gun in Bernalillo County. 

The plan is clearly unconstitutional and illegal under New Mexico laws. But the point seems to be that no rights are safe in New Mexico under this Gov. She will suspend your rights in an “emergency” and let the courts sort things out in time.

Attacking both the 2nd Amendment AND New Mexico gun law could be just a prelude to other rights in the future.

  1. Power corrupts. One candidate ran for governor on a platform of limiting this emergency power. NM voted against that limit and voted for this unlimited power. And now some are surprised it’s being abused. We need to continue to try and have these emergency powers limited by law.

    What’s next? How about eliminating elections because they are a threat to public health? Why stop here? After all, according to one political commentator “she won, didn’t she?”

      They sure do!
      Authoritarianism and totalitarianism are absolute evils. Ask anyone living under them, as are we to many (unforeseen?) events, ongoing (Think immigration, etc.).
      As a Jeffersonian Democrat, Constitutionalist, and Federalist, I was shocked; Nay – Appalled! And the Las Cruces Sun News reported a right-led opposition, when the Guv acknowledged it likely was unconstitutional, and failed to report she did not hold with her oath of office. They failed to mention that the AG, a democrat, said it was unconstitutional, and the elected County Sheriff, also a democrat, said he would not enforce the order.

      Way to go, Little California, another failed feudal empire!
