New Mexico Governor Issues BAN on Guns to Protect Public Health

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an emergency public health order which would ban guns for 30 days in the state’s largest city of Albuquerque.

The governor, a Democrat, cited the recent murder of an 11-year-old boy who was shot and killed in a road rage incident, as her reasoning for the emergency.

While Grisham expected legal challenges, she said she felt compelled to act due to rising gun crime in the city.

Lujan Grisham sent a letter requesting assistance for federal agents to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.

According to the Governor, she has requested federal help since June 2022.

Federal resources are needed to help curb “escalating violence and drug and human-trafficking activity that is ravaging our great state,” she said.

“The nature and volume of these crimes require focused attention from the federal government,” Grisham said at a press conference.

The ban on guns and the suspension of Second Amendment rights in New Mexico are tied to crime thresholds that the Albuquerque area is in the process of meeting.

The order calls for “civil administrative penalties availably by law,” which included fines up to $5,000, said a spokesperson for the governor’s office, Caroline Sweeney.

Those exempt from the ban included police officers and licensed security guards.

Citizens will still be allowed to transport firearms to places such as a gun range or a gun store, providing the transport container contains a trigger lock or another mechanism to prevent it from firing.

Lujan Grisham asked reporters to envision a “perfect world” where a ban on firearms would allow police to focus on “the real criminals.”

“No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute,” she said.

“There are restrictions on free speech, there are restrictions on my freedoms,” she continued before listing victims of gun violence.
