Did she even read the judge’s decision?
New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham decided to amend her unconstitutional gun carry ban to only parks and playgrounds.
The move comes after a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order against her ban:
But, she said at the news conference, “We have removed the requirement that open and concealed carry cannot occur until the public health order has been removed or extended anywhere in the city.”
She added the ban on carrying firearms, open or concealed, will remain in place at parks and playgrounds where families and children gather.
Lujan Grisham acknowledged last week the gun ban would face legal challenges. Most recently, the National Rifle Association and Republican lawmakers in New Mexico filed a lawsuit Thursday in the state Supreme Court.
Um, lady. The change is still unconstitutional. There’s no “except for where families and children gather” in the constitution.
Also, from what I can tell, U.S. District Judge David Urias did not say the restraining order can go away if the governor amends the carry ban.
In addition, Defendants are ENJOINED from applying, enforcing, or attempting to enforce, either criminally or civilly, Section (4) of the New Mexico Department of Health’s “Public Health Emergency Order Imposing Temporary Firearm Restrictions, Drug Monitoring and Other Public Safety Measures” to the extent it imposes additional restrictions on the carrying or possession of firearms that were not already in place prior to its issuance.
No person, other than a law enforcement officer or licensed security officer, shall possess a firearm on state property, public schools, and public parks.
It’s Friday. I’m exhausted, and my eyes hurt, so correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Urias place a restraining order on Section 4?
I do not know the New Mexico gun laws regarding guns at parks and playgrounds before her emergency order and Urias’s decision. But the order only applies to the governor’s gun carry ban.
Either way, the lady blatantly defied Urias at the press conference. It wouldn’t surprise me if she didn’t read the decision, but I’m guessing she did, and arrogance took over.
Gun laws are unconstitutional. I see a period at the end of the amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
