NM high court sets hearing date for suit over Gov. MLG’s anti-gun order

In New Mexico, the state Supreme Court is preparing to hear arguments concerning the scope of the governor’s authority to issue public health orders. 

The petition initiating this legal scrutiny has been filed by entities including the National Rifle Association (NRA), the Republican Party of New Mexico, and every Republican state legislator. The legal filing came after Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a public health emergency order stripping Bernalillo County and Albuquerque residents of their right to concealed or open carry a firearm. 

During the signing of the blatantly illegal order, Lujan Grisham claimed that no constitutional right, in her view, including her oath, “is intended to be absolute.”

A Joe Biden-appointed judge quickly struck down that measure due to its blatant unconstitutionality, but the question about the governor’s authority to make such edicts is what the lawsuit is centered upon.

Alongside questioning the governor’s authority, the petition seeks clarity from the court on whether drug abuse and gun violence can be considered valid grounds for declaring a public health emergency. The New Mexico Supreme Court has slated the arguments for January 8, where these issues will be thoroughly examined.

Reps. John Block (R-Alamogordo) and Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park) have begun impeachment proceedings against the governor and intend to bring them forth in the next legislative session.

  1. Let’s see if the NM Supreme Court views the state constitution more like guidelines than firm law.

    Another good spanking would be helpful prior to the legislature takes up “gun violence” again.

    1. You are so right about that. I am sick of her and her sycophants knowingly trampling upon The Constitution and then daring someone to call them on it.

  2. The NM Supreme Court will side with MLG giving the legislature carte blanche to pass draconian gun laws that criminalize law abiding citizens.

  3. Guess New Mexicans will see if we have an independent judiciary. Our legislature is historically a democratic govenors rubber stamp. The constitution is just words without true meaning to them. This is what generations of poorly educated students leads to. Go New Mexico.

  4. Fear mongering over gun and gun ownership has been the crutch that the DNC has been lambasting for decades, even to the public educational system. Children FEAR guns so they must be regulated into oblivion…so “Not one more needless death occurs at the hands of a gun”. (Never mind the insane a**hole who pulls the trigger)
    Democracy and individual liberty has failed in New Mexico, starting with all socialist Tribal Reservations and it has worked its way to everywhere. Just give them more stipends to live on the Res…
    It has even reached into Walmart by removing all gun sales Statewide and by even by regulating and removing from the shelves ammunition commonly used in “Assault Weapons”…
    Stupid fu*ks (American DNC communists), are destroying liberty by outlawing self defense and immortalizing outlaws as the good guys.

  5. How ironic that the Governor views the suspension Second Amendment right as a reaction to a “public health emergency”. If she were really concerned about public health emergencies, she would close our southern border!

  6. It appears that Her Thighness, queen mlg, the rotund Nazi installed at the governor’s mansion doesn’t think that placing her hoof on a Bible, raising her right hoof and giving her solemn promise to protect and defend the Constitution of New Mexico and the United States of America means much of anything, in her view.

    Well Queenie, there are millions of American men and women who will disagree with your woke view, who have sworn that Holy Oath, have gone in harm’s way in honor of that vow and a good number have given their last full measure of devotion in upholding their oath.

    You’ve proven yourself to be a true politician whose words mean nothing, your empty promises are only a means to achieve more money and power. You’ve also shown a lack of knowledge and understanding of the document you swore allegiance to uphold. When you claimed the power to ban citizens’ right to bear arms you committed an impeachable offense, bordering on sedition and perhaps even treason.

    The 2nd Amendment DOES NOT GIVE citizens the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. The Right of Self Defense is a Natural Right, a God Given Right that requires no license, permission or approval from ANY government paid stooge or flunkey.
    The 2nd Amendment, along with the other Bill of Rights is a LIMIT ON THE GOVERNMENT, establishing limits and boundaries that the government shall not cross under any circumstances.
    It’s a very important distinction that many people don’t know or don’t understand.
    Sedition or TREASON is for the courts to decide, but Queenie, you screwed up.

  7. Happy Thanksgiving to all Pinon Post writers, editors, staff, photographers, investigators, everyone related. Enjoy your

  8. I have filed a civil/criminal complaint against Grisham. When is this hearing? I would like to attend. Do you know if New Mexicans will be able to make comments during the hearing?

  9. It will be a glorious day when the skanky piglet Loserjan is arrested and escorted out of the roundhouse in handcuffs!!! If she would enforce the gun laws already on the books she and her drug running buddies would all be headed for prison – instead she wants to pull the rights of law ABIDING citizens.. is this to keep her drug and thug buddies from being challenged when they try to kick in someones door? probably!
