Albuquerque PD announces will not dealwith the Bill of Rights Ban by the Governor.

Basically says “Not my Circus, not my monkeys.”

And with that, both area Law Enforcement agencies have placed the venerable ten-foot pole between them and Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s wishes for absolute power.   A bit of a weak response, but politics continue to play a role in a Blue City which is the seat of a very Blue Governor. I wonder if she will have the balls to remove both the Chief and the Sheriff and substitute them for obeying lackeys. Whatever would happen next will be interesting to watch.

And this is your usual reminder that elections have consequences.

Bernalillo County Sheriff (NM) has issues with the Bill of Rights Ban by the Governor.


Today, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an emergency order temporarily suspending open and concealed carry laws in Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County for the next 30 days. This move has been positioned as a response to the alarming and tragic rise in gun violence, particularly the heart-wrenching death of an 11-year-old boy this past week.

First and foremost, every lost life is a tragedy, and the well-being of our community is of paramount concern to the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office. We share in the collective grief and urgency to address this issue.

However, as the elected Sheriff, I have reservations regarding this order. While I understand and appreciate the urgency, the temporary ban challenges the foundation of our Constitution, which I swore an oath to uphold. 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.

There is a lot more to read in the tweet, but I found the underlined part interesting: Is he saying he is afraid that the ban would place civilians in danger because they are not allowed to defend themselves or that legally armed civilians may be a danger to his deputies if they were to enforce this unconstitutional ban?

I truly have no problem with either interpretation.

This can go so wrong; it is not even funny.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville police now said a suspect is claiming self-defense after he shot a man holding a machete on a road in Antioch.

Police said the suspect and another person decided to follow a man in a white pickup truck, claiming the truck was stolen. The incident happened Friday at 4856 Goodwin Road around 3:30 p.m.

The suspect told police the driver of the white pickup stopped the vehicle and branded a machete. It was then police said the suspect shot the man wielding a knife.

Authorities with the Metro Nashville Police Department said the investigation is ongoing and had no further information to provide at this time.


In Antioch, a man thought a truck was stolen. Then ended up shooting the driver. (

Two things: I hope that the driver of the pick-up actually got out and advanced with the machete in a threatening manner and that the local prosecutor is not one seeking the spotlight.

Still more information is needed, but I am going to quote Jim Cirillo once again.

”You are not sworn to endanger your life to apprehend a dangerous criminal, nor you are paid to do it.”

PS: I also hope their lawyer is good and cheap.

New Mexico governor violates CCW permit holder’s rights

On Thursday, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed this executive order:


Why declare gun violence a health emergency?

Because, during COVID, Democrats learned that declaring something a health emergency gives them superconstitutional powers.

Open and concealed carry laws suspended in Albuquerque for 30 days

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham says she is suspending open and concealed carry laws in Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County for the next 30 days, temporarily prohibiting the carrying of guns on public property.

Gov. Lujan Grisham declared gun violence a public health emergency Thursday, following the murder of an 11-year-old boy on his way home from an Isotopes game Wednesday night. That case, combined with several other violent cases involving children, sparked the decision.

The new public health order is effective Friday, Sept. 8. After 30 days, they will evaluate whether they should renew the order or make adjustments.

The public health order is a statewide mandate, but it only suspends open and concealed carry privileges in communities with extremely high violent crime rates and fire-arm related emergency room visits. Right now, that only includes the metro.

There are several exceptions. The public health order does not impact private property, licensed firearm dealers, firing ranges, or shooting competitions. However, anyone traveling between those locations must store their guns in a locked container or safety box.

The order does not apply to law enforcement officers or licensed security officers.

The governor said she expects to be challenged on this, but she is prepared for a legal fight.

Of course the restriction doesn’t apply to law enforcement officers.

New Mexico is not a Constitutional Carry state.

To obtain a NM CCW requires 15 hours of training, including live fire, and a background check.

People with a CCW are not the people committing the criminal shootings in Albuquerque.

The cause of Albuquerque’s violent crime increase is easy to explain. It’s a Democrat run city, that after the death of George Floyd, experienced a reduction in policing and prosecution of criminals.

Suspending the rights of concealed carry permit holders won’t affect the cause of crime in Albuquerque, it will only prevent law abiding citizen from being able to defend themselves.

Furthermore, this act suspends the rights of law abiding citizens without a conviction or even indictment.

That, in and of itself, is a serious Constitutional violation.

This violation of civil rights will only harm innocent people.

It’s a good think the governor expects to get sued, because the lawsuit printers are going to be going overtime on this.


The Hosea 8:7 Files

A Democratic party official who pledged to ‘dismantle’ the Minneapolis Police Department in 2020 is now calling for tougher crime laws after suffering a violent carjacking outside her Minnesota home.

Shivanthi Sathanandan, the Second Vice Chairwoman for the Democrat-Farmer-Labor party, took to Facebook on Wednesday to share the graphic outcome of the gunpoint attack on her driveway and to call for justice.

Pictured with blood on her face, she said that she had suffered a broken leg, deep cuts on her head and body, and bruising after four young men carrying guns ‘beat me violently down to the ground in front of our kids’.
