USA: New Mexico Is Using Health Order To Suspend People’s 2nd Amendment Right To Carry Guns In Albuquerque. The Commie Says Her Duty To Uphold Her Oath To The Constitution Is "Not Absolute"


Let's see how they treat the continued gun crimes the Commie Democrats don't prosecute. Maybe if the Commie Democrats weren't releasing all of the criminals back onto the streets to continue terrorizing the public, they wouldn't have continued gun crimes they refuse to prosecute because of "equity".

๐Ÿ‘‡ back to my regular spiel. ๐Ÿ‘‡
Murder is already a crime. We don't have a gun problem. We have a lack of self-control problem, a criminal supremacists problem and a Commie Democrats local district attorney's, judges, parole officers soft on crime problem, not doing shit to catch the criminals as in crimes go unsolved, and when they do catch the criminals, they immediately release them back onto the streets to allow them to continue terrorizing the community. These same people siding with the criminals want to take away YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms in order to defend yourself, your business, your family and home against these criminal supremacists and a tyrannical government. Remember, criminals DO NOT obey laws. Therefore, criminals will have access to guns through gun trafficking venues and you will be left defenseless with no guns because the same government siding with criminals THEY'RE ALLOWING to terrorize you with guns said they wanted to keep you safe from guns. The anti-gun prosecutors are not even prosecuting gun crimes. But god forbid you kill an intruder, robber or rapist in self-defense in your home or on your private property, these same Commie Democrat district attorneys or prosecutors will charge you with murder and have you locked up for years in prison.

๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿ‘‡THERE YOU HAVE IT. The Commie says, "not absolute" ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿšจ
KRQE published September 12, 2023: Republican Party of New Mexico announces lawsuit against governor for health order

New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham banned people from being able to carry guns in Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least the next 30 days after a kid was killed during a road rage incident.

Grisham signed an executive order on Thursday declaring that gun violence was a public health emergency in the Democrat-controlled state.

On Friday, Grisham unilaterally suspended open and concealed carry laws in Albuquerque and the surrounding area. She said that she could further lengthen or renew her order — which was immediately slammed by many as being unconstitutional.

Grisham effectively admitted that her order might be unconstitutional when she conceded that she might not win legal challenges filed against the order.

“Now I am sure as I go through the rest of this, there will be a lot of questions about whether or not we think we have the legal right to do that. I am sure that before you write this, there will be a legal challenge,” she said. “And I can’t tell you that we win it given all of the different challenges to gun violence laws and restrictions on individual firearm access and control.”

She was later challenged directly over whether her decision to unilaterally override laws was unconstitutional.

Grisham responded that her decision to declare an emergency gives her “additional powers.”

“No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute,” she said. “There are restrictions on free speech, there are restrictions on my freedoms.”

Grisham then spoke about the 11-year-old who was killed this week and others who have been killed in shootings.

“But wait a minute, you’re talking about crimes,” the reporter pushed back. “There are already laws against the crime. So how are their rights [inaudible] –?”

“But again, if I’m unsafe, who’s standing up for that right?” Grisham responded. “If this climate is so out of control, somebody should do something. I’m doing as much as I know to do.”

She was asked by a different reporter: “Do you really think that criminals are going to hear this message and not carry a gun in Albuquerque on the streets for 30 days?”

“Uhhh, no,” she answered.

A federal judge blocked parts of a controversial gun control measure from New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today.

U.S. District Judge David Urias temporarily blocked the law on Wednesday afternoon. The judge ruled that the executive order runs contrary to recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings on gun rights, violating people's abilities to defend themselves.

“They just want the right to carry their guns,” Urias said of the plaintiffs who asked for restraining orders in response to the executive order.

Lujan Grisham signed an executive order banning carrying a loaded firearm in public in Bernalillo County, including Albuquerque, for 30 days. People who violate the rule face a civil fine of $5,000, as The Center Square previously reported.

The executive order faced widespread backlash, including critiques from gun rights organizations, law enforcement, and elected officials, alike.

Two key defections presaged the judge's decision.

On Tuesday, New Mexico Attorney General Raul Torrez told the fellow Democrat in a letter that he thought the gun control executive order she signed last week was unconstitutional.

"I am writing to inform you that my office will not defend your administration in the above-referenced cases challenging the Public Health Emergency Order Imposing Temporary Firearm Restrictions, Drug Monitoring and Other Public Safety Measures (the Emergency Order) issued by the Secretary of Health on September 8, 2023," Torrez wrote.

On Monday one of the state's Democratic Senators also attacked the order. U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich wrote in a release that, "We need to focus on solutions that are constitutional and enforceable. That’s what will save lives.”

Local law enforcement had refused to enforce the order.

Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen told ABC, "I am wary of placing my deputies in positions that could lead to civil liability conflicts, as well as the potential risks posed by prohibiting law-abiding citizens from their constitutional right to self-defense."

A federal judge has blocked part of a public health order issued by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham that suspended the right to carry guns in public in Albuquerque and the surrounding Bernalillo County.

U.S. District Judge David Urias’ ruling Wednesday is a setback for the Democratic governor as she faced mounting criticism from both sides of the gun debate.

Judge Urias agreed with plaintiffs in several lawsuits who said the order violates constitutional rights and he granted a temporary restraining order to block the suspension of gun rights. The injunction will remain in place until an Oct. 3 court hearing.

“I don’t blame her for wanting to take action in the face of terrible acts,” the judge said of Ms. Lujan Grisham’s emergency order. But he said he was faced with a much more narrow question regarding the rights afforded to citizens.

In announcing the order Friday, Ms. Lujan Grisham said it was a necessary response to several recent shootings, including one that took the life of an 11-year-old boy as he left a minor league baseball game in Albuquerque.

The 30-day emergency order would have applied to open and concealed carry of firearms in most public places, ranging from city sidewalks to urban recreational parks. The state has a long history of allowing open carry of handguns in most public settings.

Within hours of her emergency order, federal lawsuits to block the gun ban were filed, state lawmakers called for her impeachment and even gun control activists rebuked her for violating the U.S. Constitution.
