NM Dems exploit Farmington tragedy to resurrect defeated anti-gun bills

New Mexico’s Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and the federal delegation have been going all-in, attempting to politicize the tragic Farmington shooting, which left three dead and six injured. 

New Mexico’s Democrat U.S. Reps. Teresa Leger Fernandez, Melanie Stansbury, and Gabe Vasquez led a moment of silence on the House floor, and at the same time, they pushed for anti-gun laws. 

New Mexico’s Democrat state lawmakers who unsuccessfully attempted to ram through extreme anti-gun laws are weaponizing the tragedy to get another shot at passing their extremist legislation.

Sen. Joseph Cervantes (D-Las Cruces), who proposed a bill banning all firearms with a capacity of more than ten rounds, told the Albuquerque Journal, “I’m hoping my colleagues won’t forget the events in Farmington this week when we meet again.”

Rep. Andrea Romero (D-Santa Fe), who sponsored a similar bill to Cervantes’, said, “It’s just heartbreaking…. As we heal from all of this, it’s ‘what can we do next?’ — that’s where my mindset is.”

“But Sen. Carrie Hamblen, D-Las Cruces, said the young age of the shooting suspect in Farmington underscores the need to raise the minimum age to 21 for the purchase of semiautomatic rifles — a proposal she intends to reintroduce,” reported the Journal.

“We will continue to pursue legislation that is about responsible gun ownership,” she claimed

While Democrats continue politicizing the deaths of people due to mental illness in order to push anti-gun laws, Republicans say they are focused on fixing the root cause — the mental health crisis.

  1. Why doesn’t NM focus on mental health issues which is lacking in today’s society, guns don’t pull their own triggers!

    1. People are being demonized and demon possessed. We need a spiritual revival and a renewed awareness that there is a spiritual battle going on.

  2. It does not take the public much to know that this kid was MK altered by the CIA and FBI… just like all the shootings. Farmington police know this but will not expose their own corrupt colleagues. They have to be totally inept to not recognize this. Are we going to allow this to continue?
    Carry your guns folks. These poor kids are blamed for shootings that the government perpetrated .

    1. MKUltra, Satanic Ritual Abuse, or simply demons finding entry points to torment our youth through past trauma and family wounds.

      The answer to all possibilities is Jesus.

    The key Phrase here is RESPONSIBLE gun ownership. No law written is going to stop the mass killings because the lawless criminals DON’T CARE ABOUT ANY LAWS! A criminal by definition is someone who disobeys a law. Focus on protecting the law abiding citizens that defend themselves and a lot of this other stuff will stop.

  4. My firearm has been on my night stand for 2 weeks. It has not wandered off or shot anybody. I do not understand how banning my gun will do anything. Am I missing something?

  5. Following prior rulings of Heller & McDonald,in Bruen SCOTUS Ruled: “Second Amendment standard must be the same as how we protect other constitutional rights. The 2nd amendments’ plain text covers an individual’s conduct,the Constitution presumptively protects that conduct. The Amendment’s operative clause,“the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed”guarantees the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. Nothing in the 2nd Amendment’s text draws a home/public distinction to the right to keep and bear arms The 2nd amendment does NOT depend on service in the militia. 2nd amendment protects the possession and use of weapons that are in common use at the time. Only if a firearm regulation is consistent with this Nation’s historical tradition may a court conclude that the individual’s conduct falls outside the Second Amendment’s “unqualified command.” Read the case & be informed.

  6. When are people going to wake up and realize the gun is not the problem!? MENTAL behavior, and instability is the problem! HIPPA has done NOTHING to help or protect any person EVER! HIPPA has protected insurance companies and hidden facts about mental issues from NCIC and law enforcement. Mental ability/ instability should be on every gun purchase application!! But – the idiots in the roundhouse want to strip every citizen of their rights.. “An UNARMED citizen is more compliant”..

  7. Sen. Joseph Cervantes

    This blog story is a lie. I never proposed or sponsored any legislation to limit capacity to 10 rounds. All legislation I sponsored is online and can be fact checked. I never voted to support any such law much less sponsored that. The blogger is a legislator who should know better. An apology and retraction is due me Representative. Your effectiveness in office will be directly related to your reputation for truthfulness. Which with me right now is quite low.
