“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.
“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.
