SANTA FE—Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today held a press conference outlining her “public safety” priorities for the upcoming session. During the conference, she proposed several bills that are a direct assault on the Second Amendment rights of New Mexicans.
Senate Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca (R-Belen), issued the following statement regarding the press conference:
“Senate Republicans are eager to join the governor in tackling New Mexico’s crime epidemic, and to that end, we have introduced a number of commonsense solutions. Unfortunately, today’s press conference took a hyper-partisan turn with the announcement of several anti-2nd Amendment measures targeting New Mexico gun owners who only want to protect themselves and their families.”
“Let’s be clear — if the Governor and other democrats were half as hard on criminals as they are on law-abiding citizens, our communities would already be much safer. Enough with the false solutions. Let’s enforce the laws we have, keep dangerous criminals behind bars, and give law enforcement the tools they need to do their jobs.”
