Posted byFreedom Rises Posted onSeptember 9, 2023 Comments0

The Governor of New Mexico, Democrat Michelle Lujan Grisham, has announced that she will be suspending the open and concealed carry of firearms across Albuquerque and the surrounding Bernalillo County for at least 30 days. The Governor said that she has the ability to do this, despite it infringing on American’s Constitutional rights because she deemed the gun problem to be an emergency. “As I said yesterday, the time for standard measures has passed,” said Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. “And 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.” This suspension also came with a few more things involved, with the entire plan being called a “public health order”.

– The Regulation and Licensing Division to conduct monthly inspections of licensed firearm dealers to ensure compliance with all sales and storage laws.
– The Department of Health, along with the Environment Department, to begin wastewater testing for illegal substances such as fentanyl at schools.
– The Department of Health to compile and issue a comprehensive report on gunshot victims presenting at hospitals in New Mexico, which shall include (if available): demographic data of gunshot victims, including age, gender, race, and ethnicity; data on gunshot victim’s healthcare outcomes; the brand and caliber of the firearm used; the general circumstances leading to the injury; the impact of gunshot victims on New Mexico’s healthcare system; and any other pertinent information.
– A prohibition on firearms on state property, including state buildings and schools. This also includes other places of education where children gather, such as parks.

– The State Police to add officers in Albuquerque with funding for overtime provided.
– The Children, Youth and Families Department to immediately suspend the Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative and evaluate juvenile probation protocols.
