On Saturday, progressive anti-gun activists came out against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) after she issued an emergency order suspending the constitutional right to carry firearms in public throughout Albuquerque and surrounding counties for at least 30 days following an uptick in gun violence.
As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, the "ban attacks open and concealed carry in public places like parks or sidewalks but will not apply to certain places such as private property, gun stores, or shooting ranges. New Mexico citizens aren’t entirely banned from transporting guns within the state but will need to keep the weapon in a trigger lock or other container, or else they will face a fine of up to $5,000."
In response to the blatant attempt to outlaw a constitutional right, anti-gun activist David Hogg took to X to point out the glaring problem in Grisham's order.
"I support gun safety but there is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution," Hogg wrote.
He wasn't the only Democrat to come out against the New Mexico governor's unconstitutional order with Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA), writing, "I support gun safety laws. However, this order from the Governor of New Mexico violates the U.S. Constitution. No state in the union can suspend the federal Constitution. There is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution."
With Democrats even standing up to Gov. Grisham, it's not looking good for the survival of her public health order or her political career.
State Republicans have already called for her impeachment over the tyrannical move that has led to many sheriffs coming out against it and refusing to enforce the governor's order.
"New Mexico State Representative Stefani Lord (R-NM-22) and John Block (R-NM-51) are calling for the impeachment of New Mexico's Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, after Grisham's emergency order that violates the constitutional rights of New Mexicans," a letter sent by the two lawmakers reads.
"This is an abhorrent attempt at imposing a radical, progressive agenda on an unwilling populous," Rep. Lord said in a statement. "Rather than addressing crime at its core, Governor Grisham is restricting the rights of law-abiding gun owners."
The governor's move to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens in an attempt to crack down on crime via an emergency order is antithetical to the Constitution. While some Democrats have called out Grisham's action, the governor's move shows just how far some anti-gun radicals are willing to go to impede the Second Amendment right of all Americans.
