New Mexico AG Announces He WILL NOT Defend Grisham against Lawsuits on Gun Ban

New Mexico Democrat Attorney General announced on Tuesday he will not defend Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham against the avalanche of lawsuits filed in response to her unconstitutional gun ban.

Last week, Grisham declared gun violence a public health emergency and issued a 30-day ban in response to the shooting deaths of a thirteen-year-old girl, a five-year-old girl on August 14, and an eleven-year-old boy on September 6.

“The action plan includes a suspension of open and concealed carry laws in Bernalillo County, temporarily prohibiting the carrying of guns on public property with certain exceptions. Exceptions include for licensed security guards and law enforcement officers. Citizens with permits to carry firearms are free to possess their weapons on private property (such as at a gun range or gun store), provided they transport the firearm in a locked box, use a trigger lock, or some other mechanism that renders the gun incapable of being fired,” according to the press release.

However, Grisham faced massive backlash from Democrats, Republicans, and even some gun control activists as lawsuits mounted on her gun ban.

No one is backing Grisham after she unilaterally suspended the Second Amendment in Albuquerque.

Meanwhile, New Mexico gun owners sent a defiant message to Grisham after her gun ban this week.

Dozens of peaceful New Mexican gun owners took to the streets carrying their firearms in protest of the ban issued by Grisham.

Watch

New Mexico’s Democrat Attorney General Raul Torrez also informed Grisham he will not defend her!

“I am writing to inform you that my office will not defend your administration in the above referenced cases challenging the Public Health Emergency Order Imposing Temporary Firearm Restrictions, Drug Monitoring and Other Public Safety Measures (the Emergency Order) issued by the Secretary of Health on September 8, 2023,” Raul Torrez wrote in a 4-page letter.

Raul Torrez continued:

“Though I recognize my statutory obligation as New Mexico’s chief legal officer to defend state officials when they are sued in their official capacity, my duty to uphold and defend the constitutional rights of every citizen takes precedence. Simply put, I do not believe that the Emergency Order will have any meaningful impact on public safety but, more importantly, I do not believe it passes constitutional muster,” Torrez added.

Torrez blasted Grisham for taking unilateral action to violate the Second Amendment.

“However, I encourage you to engage in a more thoughtful and deliberative process with members of the New Mexico Legislature rather than taking unilateral action that infringes on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens while having little if any discernible impact on the underlying dynamics driving gun violence in our community,” Torrez wrote.

CNN host Poppy Harlow also took aim at Grisham when she read the New Mexico Constitution live on air.

“No law shall abridge the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms for security and defense for lawful hunting and recreational use and for other lawful purposes, but nothing herein shall be held to permit the carrying of concealed weapons,” she said.

“No municipality of county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.”
