New Mexico Governor 'Temporarily' Suspends Second Amendment In Albuquerque

Here comes one of the most egregious violations of our Constitutionally enumerated rights, in this case the Second Amendment: New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has banned open and concealed carry in Albuquerque.


To deal with the gun violence.

This beggars the question “How does disarming law abiding citizens stop criminals from shooting other people?”

Another question: Does the governor really think the US Supreme Court is going to let that slide?

Oh, that’s right. Today’s Democrats don’t believe in the Constitution any more, at least when its restrictions work against them.

The governor said she expects the order to face legal challenges but that she believed she needed to act in response to recent gun-related deaths, such as an 11-year-old boy who was shot and killed outside a minor league baseball stadium earlier this week.

“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,” Lujan Grisham said in a statement.

The suspension was classified as an emergency public health order, and applies to open and concealed carry in most public places, excluding police and licensed security guards. The restriction is connected to a threshold for violent crime rates met only by the Albuquerque area.


So, what happens when the crime rate does not go down, because the vast majority of the shootings are by people who do not lawfully own the firearm, meaning no background check. Darn sure haven’t gone through the process of obtaining a concealed carry permit. Who fired the shots at the baseball game? No one knows at this point. No arrests, no person of interest. The only thing they know was that it was road rage and it was a newer black Dodge Durango SRT.

I’m betting the crime rate will go up because now the law abiding citizens are unarmed in public and the criminals know it. If that is indeed the case you know the gun-grabbers will blame the guns and not those wielding them. They will ignore the fact that criminals don’t abide by the law which is what makes them criminals. They will ignore the fact that they made it easier for criminals to commit violent crimes. They will continue to blame the tool rather than the person wielding the tool. They are using this as a workaround to the Constitution, using “public health” as an excuse. That’s not much different than using that same excuse to silence people asking uncomfortable questions about Covid-19, treatments, vaccines, and precautions.

Which of our Constitutional rights will be the next one to be circumvented as part of an ‘emergency’ public health order?
