Lujan Grisham signs illegal order ‘suspending’ ABQ residents’ gun rights

On Friday, far-left anti-gun Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham unilaterally — and unconstitutionally — violated New Mexico state laws and the U.S. and state constitutions by ordering all concealed-carrying of firearms be banned in Albuquerque. 

She said, “In this public health order, which is effective today, September 8th, which lasts thirty days, and then like all the other public health orders, we will either amend or renew or adjust depending upon where we are. So, effective immediately, no person other than a law enforcement officer or licensed security officer shall possess a firearm either openly or concealed within cities or counties averaging 1,000 or more violent crimes per  100,000 and  more than 90 firearm-related emergency department visits.”

She noted how the criteria in the order would affect “Albuquerque and Bernalillo Counties” for 30 days.

“We’re suspending open and concealed carry,” she added. 

Lujan Grisham even admitted how illegal the order is, saying, “I am sure before you [the media] write this, there will be a legal challenge, and I can’t tell you that we win it, given all of the different challenges to gun violence laws and restrictions on individual firearm access and control.”

The extremist move violates the New Mexico and federal constitutions, as well as state laws such as the Concealed Handgun Carry Act of 2003. Because the order is illegal and an abomination of the Constitution, it is therefore null and void. 

However, the governor still contends that any right in the Constitution is not “absolute,” saying even her oath to the Constitution is not absolute:

  1. Let me say this as nice as needed -not as nice as I am capable. Loserjan GO F**K yourself! When the punks and thugs obey the laws then citizens might have a chance-until then an UNARMED citizen is a victim!

  2. WE WILL NOT COMPLY. Declaration of independence states the governed has to give their consent and WE DO NOT CONSENT. MLG you can suck it.

  3. What does it take to amend the state constitution to add an impeachment process. MLG has repeatedly proven that it’s necessary throughout the covid pandemic but his definition of a public health emergency defies all logic and violates the state and federal Constitutions. Enough of this little dictator!!!

  4. The troll that claims to be governor does not have the right to supersede the Constitution. She and her communist cronies are responsible for the illegal weapons used to commit crimes. Like her fellow democrats she is to stupid to understand cause and effect! She’s the cause and the effect is the illegal guns she has allowed gangs and criminals to possess. It’s past time to add an amendment to the state constitution to allow the citizens to recall lunatics like Lujan to continue to hold office when she violates the constitutional rights of citizens. FML

  5. I think I would just go ahead and break the law as you know they don’t enforce them on lifelong criminals so I wouldn’t worry. When will people that vote democrat ever realize that they ( Dem politicians) are nor there to help the good citizens. Nearly all the counties with issues are run and controlled by democrats.

  6. What happened to will Support and Defend the Constitution. The Democrats just continue to disobey the laws and no one does anything about it. I guess the fact that the State Supreme Court. The Court of Appeals and almost all of the Judges in Albuquerque are Demonrats lets her get away with these Constitutional violations.

    1. Seriously?? I hope hunters make a case, because this is a very uneducated and narrow-minded decision. Perhaps she should consult and research through Game & Fish before she issues a blanket Executive Order.

  7. So she puts the law abiding citizens in danger by this illegal order which she will try to extend indefinitely? Remove her. Democrats are soley responsible for the crime epidemic across the nation by defunding police depts nationwide and allowing criminals to walk free back onto the streets to commit more violent crime. Violent criminals do not obey laws, edicts or unconstitutional orders. The onslaught of illegal aliens and the cartel whether wannabes or the real thing are also why we are seeing this much crime…as a democrat caused problem. This does nothing but make more victims of democrat led violence. She is a vile communist and works actively against both federal and state constitutions.

  8. Just reading NM Laws

    2019 New Mexico Statutes
    Chapter 30 – Criminal Offenses
    Article 7 – Weapons and Explosives
    Section 30-7-2 – Unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon.
    Universal Citation: NM Stat § 30-7-2 (2019)
    A. Unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon consists of carrying a concealed loaded firearm or any other type of deadly weapon anywhere, except in the following cases:

    (1) in the person’s residence or on real property belonging to him as owner, lessee, tenant or licensee;

    (2) in a private automobile or other private means of conveyance, for lawful protection of the person’s or another’s person or property;

    (3) by a peace officer in accordance with the policies of his law enforcement agency who is certified pursuant to the Law Enforcement Training Act [Chapter 29, Article 7 NMSA 1978];

    (4) by a peace officer in accordance with the policies of his law enforcement agency who is employed on a temporary basis by that agency and who has successfully completed a course of firearms instruction prescribed by the New Mexico law enforcement academy or provided by a certified firearms instructor who is employed on a permanent basis by a law enforcement agency; or

    (5) by a person in possession of a valid concealed handgun license issued to him by the department of public safety pursuant to the provisions of the Concealed Handgun Carry Act [Chapter 29, Article 19 NMSA 1978].

    B. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the carrying of any unloaded firearm.

    C. Whoever commits unlawful carrying of a deadly weapon is guilty of a petty misdemeanor.

    History: 1953 Comp., § 40A-7-2, enacted by Laws 1963, ch. 303, § 7-2; 1975, ch. 134, § 1; 1985, ch. 174, § 1; 2001, ch. 219, § 13.

    1. So MLG thinks that criminals, thugs, punks, gang bangers, and those with violent mental issues follow the existing laws? Or will pay attention to her edict?

      Nope, only hurts the law abiding citizens and their right to protect themselves.

  9. She is so ignorant, but only half as ignorant as the people who re-elected her. So from the cities and counties with the most crime, she taking away our right to defend ourselves. I’m carrying, F:^*# her, concealed carry, means CONCEALED carry.

  10. “Little Dictator “ strikes again! Impeachment is the only way to stop her. Is she going to give up her protectors who carry guns?

  11. Draconian and notably in the name of a “health order” — she got away with so much during covid and set a precedent.
    “Hi, I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”

    Another question is, Why is this insane and blatantly illegal move happening right now? What are “they” trying to distract us from?

    Remember – without Election Integrity, *No One* has a voice.
    We won’t get rid of these people by throwing votes into the void of corruption that is the electoral system in this state.
    Ask yourself – do you believe your vote counts?

  12. F*ck that tyrant & those that support her. #WillNotComply
    Law enforcement has no duty to protect. I am not going to go unarmed & become a victim of the lawlessness that’s encouraged by the Leftists. Screw that & screw them.

    1. Albuquerque is the only time in my entire life I have had to draw my firearm to prevent being a victim of a crime.

      No way should people have to die defenseless because this insane woman said so.

  13. People of Albuquerque, you have a choice – do you obey CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, or do you obey a rogue tyrant?

    The Constitution is the LAW. By infringing on it, Lujan is breaking a LAW. It’s a crime.

  14. Kinda saw something like this coming when the state constitution was rewritten to prevent the public from trying to overturn any law dealing with education or public safety/health.
    But Albuquerque is just a test run. The rest of the state will be next.

  15. I no longer feel safe in NM because of lack of criminal prosecution and now you’re taking away my right to protect myself and potentially others. What a terrible move by our governor.

  16. Their real goal is to disarm the population for a Chinese/Russian invasion. Remember I said this, so you will grasp how deep the treason and betrayal go when it happens.

  17. Their real goal is to disarm the population for a Chinese/Russian invasion. Remember I said this, so you will grasp how deep the treason and betrayal go when it happens.

  18. So this is why I see the state police everywhere now, like a blanket of Gestapos covering the state. They are here to oppress and impoverish, and now to disarm. The tyrant now has her own little storm troopers. But, they are vastly outnumbered.

  19. The emergency is in the criminal justice system.
    We have plenty of related laws on the books that are not being enforced. Let’s start there. Criminals couldn’t care less about laws and they’re not being held accountable when they break them.
    Do we need more examples to prove MLG’s a tyrant?

  20. When you disarm law-abiding citizens the only one who will be armed is the criminal. Governor your an idiot. You are the reason why I don’t vote Democrat I bet you have your own protection though…huh!
    Time for you to be thrown out of office. Bad ML bad! Bad!

  21. If the Republicans of New Mexico had nominated a true conservative candidate for Governor instead of a RINO perpetual candidate like Mark Ronchetti, then maybe we could have prevented this altogether. Everyone calling for her impeachment is blowing hot air as the Democrats practically make up a super majority in both houses of the legislature and will not even entertain the concept of removing their Queen. New Mexico is a lost cause, fiscally, socially, intellectually, and spiritually.

  22. I voted for this psycho and regret it. Does she think the criminals will follow this mandate, she is living in the land of OZ. Take away guns from law abiding citizens, which we use to protect ourselves, and all shootings will stop. Idiot! It’s the criminals that are killing people, the criminals that are slapped on the hand and then released back into the public. Make the laws tougher, punish them according to their crime and stop letting them make deals for less time in prison. What a fool she is!!!!

  23. Dominion voting machines were introduced to NM in 2013, at least that’s what I can find. Difficult to research it. In NM, we need a state holiday on election day. Paper ballots, and they stay in each precinct, counted there, certified there. It can be done; we just have to have the will to do it. It’s the only way we can be assured of free and fair elections in these times. These are my own opinions, and obviously subject to discussion. We should all welcome honest debate. We have a free country, let’s keep it that way.
