Balking at the Ban

“Key Albuquerque officials won’t enforce the New Mexico governor’s recent order. At a press conference last Friday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham had vowed to suspend the right to publicly carry firearms ‘in any public space’ in the Albuquerque area. The temporary order, declared in response to recent shootings, was justified by the governor as an ’emergency health measure.’ The response has been far from uniformly positive. In addition to officials balking, a gun-rights group, National Association for Gun Rights, is suing to block the order. And there has been talk of impeaching the governor. There was even an armed protest.” (09/12/23)
