New Mexico governor Suspends Citizens' Second Amendment Rights

New Mexico's governor has just made an announcement to her people:

Throw America's Bill of Rights out the window.

The state's citizenry is ignoring it now.

Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham just decided that she was bigger than America's Constitution and has suspended the Second Amendment in Albuquerque.

Grisham has ordered that both concealed and open carry now be considered illegal in public in and around the city.

She says she made the demand as a result of an age 11 boy being killed outside of a baseball game last week.

There has also reportedly been an increase in shootings against Muslim men in Albuquerque throughout the summer of 2023.

"I welcome the debate and fight about how to make New Mexicans safer," Grisham said.

I bet she does welcome the debate, as long as it doesn't matter how the discussion goes and she's going to get her way anyway.

"As I said yesterday, the time for standard measures has passed," she said. "When New Mexicans are afraid to be in crowds, to take their kids to school, to leave a baseball game — when their very right to exist is threatened by the prospect of violence at every turn — something is very wrong."

Local law enforcement officials have already questioned the order. Albuquerque's police chief has already vowed not to enforce it. Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen questioned the order's constitutionality as well.

"While I understand and appreciate the urgency, the temporary ban challenges the foundation of our constitution, which I swore an oath to uphold," Allen said. "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."
