Elizabeth Warren Claims NM Gun Ban Is Supreme Court's Fault

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to state that New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham's gun ban was an acceptable public health emergency, blaming the conservative-majority Supreme Court for the situation.

Warren shared the remarks during an interview on "CNN Primetime" on Tuesday.

"Keep in mind, for example, in the District of Columbia, a few years back, D.C. said, we just want to basically ban carrying guns, and good for D.C. They said it was going to bring down gun violence, and they were right. And then, an extremist United States Supreme Court said, nope, we’re not going to let you do it, and then Congress wouldn’t act to try to give them some of the tools to help fight gun violence," Warren said.

"And yet, it’s those same governors and those same mayors who are then held responsible for the rise in violence. So, I say this, is they’re caught in the switches, and they’re doing everything they possibly can to reduce gun violence and to try to save the lives of our children, our neighbors, everyone," she added.

"Today I issued a 30-day ban on the open & concealed carrying of guns in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County," Lujan Grisham wrote last week.

"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," she added.

The governor used a public health order to execute a 30-day ban on concealed carry and open carry in Albuquerque.

The controversial move has since led to a lawsuit from the NRA, protests in New Mexico, and even movements of individuals in Albuquerque openly carrying firearms to defy the order.

The governor's move has even led to criticisms from fellow Democrats who claim the move is the wrong one in response to gun violence in the state, punishing law-abiding citizens in the process.

Warren, however, failed to speak against the governor and remained opposed to gun rights, instead blaming the Supreme Court and conservatives for the issue.
