Even gun control advocates calling New Mexico Governor’s gun ban unconstitutional



On Friday, New Mexico’s Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham enacted a public health order which is such a violation of the Second Amendment, that even pro-gun control advocates and Democrats are calling it a violation of the United States Constitution. Grisham’s order bans individuals from carrying firearms in parts of the state for 30 days, regardless of their permit status.

Constitutionality aside, the order is a ridiculous attempt at telling criminals not to be criminals, and for law-abiding citizens to stand down when the criminals commit, well, crime. The public health decree applies to Albuquerque, the state’s largest city, and Bernalillo County, according to the Santa Fe New Mexican.

The order demands that “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 residents per year since 2021.”

“I support gun safety laws,” Democratic Representative Ted Lieu of California who has a history of supporting gun control legislation wrote. “However, this order from the Governor of New Mexico violates the U.S. Constitution. No state in the union can suspend the federal Constitution,” he continued, adding that “there is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution.”

David Hogg, a 2017 Parkland, Florida shooting survivor and vocal gun control advocate, took to X, formally known as Twitter,  to criticize the public health order: “I support gun safety but there is no such thing as a state public health emergency exception to the U.S. Constitution,” he wrote.

In response to a reporter’s question during a press conference announcing the order, Grisham displayed the real root of the problem which is that liberals are afraid to stand up to criminals and be tough on crime. “There are literally too many people to arrest,” Grisham said. “If there’s an emergency, and I’ve declared an emergency for a temporary amount of time, I can invoke additional powers. No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute.”
