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.

  1. Coincidentally enough, I was in a gun store in Albuquerque earlier today picking something up when the news of the all-carry ban hit.
    The reaction of the patrons in the store was … interesting.
    For the good of the country I’m glad MLG didn’t take the post of Biden’s IntSec, but by the same token it would have gotten her out of the state…

  2. Ah, ye olde public health emergency.

    Ya know, lying sleezoid politicians _could_ be considered a public health emergency. Just sayin’.

  3. RE: her expecting a lawsuit… two things 1) obviously the threat of a lawsuit over gun rights doesnt scare these people… and why should it? They don’t carry the financial burden of bringing the suit (plaintiffs do) or defending it (taxpayers do), so we need a better deterrent to these would be gun grabbers. 2) this is where the 42 USC 1982 claim comes in – we need to hold these ****s personally accountable for their treason, pierce the veil of immunity and MAKE IT COST EM THEIR FREEDOM when they pull this crap.

  4. nm has become another liberal infested state. And when this doesn’t work expect her to enact more useless laws ….notice thier ideas only affect law abiding citizens….

  5. It feels like, after the scamdemic, “Public health emergencies” are about to be as abused as that Maryland cop’s family and the interstate commerce clause combined. I figured something like this was going to happen at some point once they started trying to push inner city youths offing each other as a “public health emergency.”
    Now, I’m hoping that SAF and GOA promptly buttf**k the governor and her lackeys with something large, dry, and coated with 20 grit.

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

    And during COVID, “two weeks to stop the spread” became “45 days to flatten the curve”, which turned into almost 3 1/2 years of enforced masks, lockdowns, and loss of businesses and commerce.

    Ergo, unless challenged and overturned, I suspect this 30-day “temporary” order will be extended — repeatedly — to the end of the governor’s term in office.

    And then there’s the media spin: What kind of heartless bastard challenges an order dealing with a “public health emergency”?

    The real “public health emergency” is Leftist politicians and their sycophantic media allies.

  7. Start keeping score. If during these thirty days, gun-related crime doesn’t fall by a statistically significant margin unattributable to normal/other causes or just one CCW holder is unable to defend him/herself against a violent act, them the premise is entirely debunked and no extension permissible….AND sue her personally; deprivation of rights under color if law.

  8. First of all, she is banning the law abiding and responsible people from carrying because she knows banning the criminals from carrying is meaningless. And, it is better to “do something” than to look like you are doing nothing.
    Will she get sued? Yep, and she does not care. There is a base she is catering to, and their support and/or adoration is all she wants. And, what if she gets sued and the system is rigged to support her executive order? It goes to court and the judge says she clearly has the right to do this. Guess who was just handed an unlimited authority to implement whatever measures she wants because there is a “health” or other emergency.
    Finally, how do these control freaks continually get elected? Personally, I suspect an audit of her last election is in order. Well… Personally, I think the events of Athens, TN need to be repeated a bit more often.
    “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”

    1. CBMTTek, when you ask, “Finally, how do these control freaks continually get elected?” I am reminded of a saying I heard years ago:
      “Those who deserve power rarely seek it. Those who seek power rarely deserve it.”
      And I think that’s been born out 10 fold in recent decades.

    2. @CBMTTek: I suspect that such obvious misdeeds, as in Athens, will be hidden from we serfs and citizens who believe in Rights will be unable to gather sufficient support.

  9. @ragnar_d: If we the people could somehow dial back the potential power solons have/take/usurp, the better people might strive to our representatives. Sigh.

  10. Jon, it is entirely irrelevant whether the next 30 days shows her premise to be true or false. I’d bet on false, but it DOES NOT MATTER. The Constitution clearly and plainly forbids what she did, and the fake excuse she concocted is not authority to ignore the plain English of the Constitution.
    Now, I do agree that keeping track is a good idea. The reason: if no one is killed in a way that can be ascribed to this violation, then 18 USC 241 prescribes a penalty of up to 10 years in prison, but if a death results, then the violation is punishable by life in prison or by the death penalty.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
