One Democrat governor decided to singlehandedly trample all over the Second Amendment, and now the American people are calling for her head.
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham recently issued a public health emergency just to give her the power to strip away law-abiding citizen’s rights to carry firearms in major cities like Albuquerque, despite the city facing an enormous uptick in crime.
After declaring the health emergency, Grisham signed an executive order banning citizen’s right to carry firearms in certain parts of the state for at least 30 days, but admitted that she may very well extend the ban beyond that.
Coming in response to a recent string of criminal shootings, an authoritative Grisham decided to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens, claiming that she felt “completed to act” following the shootings.
“Today I issued a 30-day ban on the open & concealed carrying of guns in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. Gun violence is killing between 2 and 3 children every month in NM – every single one of these deaths is unconscionable and they must stop,” Grisham wrote on X, while failing to note that virtually NONE of those deaths come at the hands of legal gun owners.
She further declared in a statement, “As I said yesterday, the time for standard measures has passed. And 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.”
This power-crazed Democrat governor is trying to convince the masses that her tyrannical decision is about “saving families and their kids” but the truth is taking guns out of the hands of law-abiding Americans, she’s leaving them completely vulnerable to violent criminals who will now KNOW that people are unable to defend themselves.
Republicans in the state have been absolutely shredding the left-wing tyrant’s decision, with one saying it is merely an attempt to “impose a radical, progressive agenda.”
“This is an abhorrent attempt at imposing a radical, progressive agenda on an unwilling populous. Rather than addressing crime at its core, Governor Grisham is restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners,” Rep Stefani Lord wrote.
Fellow New Mexico Republican state rep. John Block has directly called for the governor’s removal in response to the order, “Impeach and remove Lujan Grisham,” he wrote on X.
Local police have also indicated they will NOT be enforcing their tyrannical leader’s ban. Benalillo County Sheriff John Allen said he has “reservations” surrounding it and is particularly concerned that it’s not even constitutionally viable.
Hell, the order is so completely ridiculous that even the most far-left gun grabbers, like David Hogg felt the need to call out Grisham and her OBVIOUS power grab.
“I support gun safety but there is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution,” Hogg said.
You know Grisham screwed up when even lefties like Hogg are pointing it out!
