BREAKING: Democrat New Mexico governor SUSPENDS open and concealed carry laws for 30 days


New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed an executive order temporarily banning the carrying of firearms in areas of the state with high crime rates. The ban will last for 30 days and is effective immediately.

Grisham justified her decision by declaring gun violence a public health emergency after an 11-year-old boy was killed on his way home from a baseball game on Wednesday.

“Today I issued a 30-day ban on the open & concealed carrying of guns in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County,” Grisham said on X. “Gun violence is killing between 2 and 3 children every month in NM – every single one of these deaths is unconscionable and they must stop.”

According to KOB4, the order does not apply to police officers or licensed security guards. All citizens also remain free to possess firearms in private.

The move has been deemed “unconstitutional” by many; however, Grisham has made it clear she is prepared for a legal fight.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
