SANTA FE — Today, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, under the auspices of a public health order, declared that law-abiding citizens in Bernalillo County are no longer able to carry firearms, open or concealed, in public spaces for 30 days.
Senate Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca (R-Belen), issued the following statement in regard to the order:
“A child is murdered, the perpetrator is still on the loose, and what does the governor do? She throws the mayor of Albuquerque under the bus and then targets law-abiding citizens with an unconstitutional gun order. Tragically, this is what we have come to expect from an administration that refuses to take responsibility for the crime epidemic gripping our state. It is time for the governor to stop pointing fingers and admit that her soft-on-crime approach has failed and put the safety of all New Mexicans in great jeopardy."
