Hundreds of Albuquerque Residents Protest New Mexico Governor’s Gun Emergency Order

Hundreds of Albuquerque Residents Protest New Mexico Governor’s Gun Emergency Order

“We are a beacon of hope because we actually protect individual freedoms.”

Hundreds of residents in Old Town Albuquerque brought out their guns and openly carried them in protest against New Mexico’s stupid gun emergency health order.

KRQE reported that “dozens” showed up to the rally, but in the next paragraph, it admitted over a hundred people participated:

Dozens of people protested in Albuquerque Sunday with guns in hand. They’re claiming the governor is overstepping her authority after that public health order banning guns in public spaces in Bernalillo County.

More than 100 people showed up in Old Town Sunday to protest the governor’s order, which is a 30-day ban on carrying a gun in public spaces in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

In protest, gun owners had their firearms on full display. Many expressed their frustration and anger towards the new order.

It’s gorgeous to watch!

KRQE admitted it did not see any police in the area. Therefore, the police did not intervene or enforce the stupid order.

God bless these people:

“This governor has overstepped her bounds, twice now, big time, with squashing our constitutional rights, and it’s time for it to stop,” said protester Jerry Morgan.

“We are a beacon of hope because we actually protect individual freedoms,” said protester Corine Rios.

Many protesters said they will continue to carry their firearms on them in Bernalillo County despite the public health order. The protest was peaceful and wrapped up around 3 p.m.

It’s an executive order and unconstitutional thus not a law and not necessary to comply!

Have you ever noticed that Dems seem to rise to imperial power once elected to any office? They look at the Constitution as obama did when he called it a doormat.

She needs to be politically pounded into the ground. I am not advocating violence, but there needs to be such a groundswell of outrage that no other politician will even think about following in her footsteps.

The CDC tried to associate gun crime with ‘public health’. Sorry, guns are not a ‘disease’, and any attempt to link guns to disease is mendacious and cannot be allowed to stand.


By not announcing that they wouldn’t enforce such a plainly unconstitutional order from the governor, the local police really missed an opportunity to both build some goodwill and defuse any tensions that may have been heightened.

She’s doing whatever she wants.

Because she can.

She knows she answers to the Party, not the people.

And any time anyone tries to question the voting irregularities that allow this monster to reign we are told that no one cares about that anymore, that we need to stop talking about it.

Isn’t making an unconstitutional rule grounds for impeachment?

    The Republican legislators have announced they have already initiated impeachment procedures. They don’t have enough seats to actually do anything but embarrass the governor, so I hope they do a good job of that.

I’m old enough to remember when Executive Orders were directed only to the employees of the executive and Laws were the only thing the People were obligated to obey and the Executive authorized to enforce..

    Somehow you managed to forget the mass evacuation into concentration camps of thousands of American citizens of Japanese extraction,, all done under authority of Executive Order 8066, in 1942.

New Mexico House: 45:25 in favor of Dems. New Mexico Senate: 27:15 in favor of Dems. New Mexico is a totalitarian state only distinguishable from California for being EAST of Arizona instead of WEST!

I suspect that if there is no improvement in violent crime over the next 30 days the Empress of New Mexico will claim that it’s because these citizens didn’t kowtow and obey.

How about a compromise? They can carry if they wear N-95 masks.

As we’ve seen over and over, especially since Covid, politicians and government functionaries can violate our civil rights with virtually no consequences. They may – eventually – lose in court, but they serve no jail time, they pay no fines. I’d like to see this criminalized in some way, with no qualified immunity. But we need to tread carefully otherwise the totalitarian leftists will use it against their enemies. Clearly though, our third branch, allegedly co-equal judiciary is no match for the combined onslaught against our rights from leftist politicians, the deep state and complicit media.

“dozens” showed up to the rally
over a hundred people participated
Well, 9 dozen people would be more than 100 and it would be “dozens”….
Officially, that journalist passed math.

Just hundreds? Why aren’t there thousands? Pathetic.

Sorry comment went in the wrong spot.

However the answer to your question is what has happened to J6 and anti abortion protesters. If you protest leftist policies you may find a Fed swat team at your door and end up bankrupt and facing years in prison.

As Lenin said they use terror against their opponents because it works.

I am wicked disgusted at the press release the state rifle association posted today:

The recent decision by the New Mexico Governor to ban firearms within Bernalillo County has raised concerns over the constitutionality of such a measure. While public safety is undoubtedly a critical consideration

…the prohibition on firearms within the county appears to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding individuals….

Banning firearms in Bernalillo County raises the question of whether it is a justifiable restriction on Second Amendment rights. Proponents argue that it will enhance public safety by reducing the risk of gun-related crimes and accidents…

While the Governor’s intentions to safeguard public safety are commendable

In conclusion, the recent ban on firearms within Bernalillo County raises valid concerns surrounding its constitutionality…

This is the sort of half-assed “advocacy” I’ve seen from all too many “NRA-affiliated state rifle associations” (SRAs).

(The best move Arizona ever made was to form a non-NRA-affiliated gun lobby that told NRA to butt out of our state politics, and did all the heavy lifting they weren’t doing — or were actively undermining, leaving the NRA and the SRA to keep the Fudds entertained.)

If the SRA isn’t going to stand up and clearly state that this order is abhorrent to the state and federal constitutions, that it is a line in the sand, and that it shall not stand, who the hell is going to?

(Thank heavens for the national groups such as AFA and GOA who are already on the scene kicking ass.
You’ll notice that NRA national isn’t doing jack-shit about this order, either.)
