BREAKING NEWS – Santa Fe, New Mexico – New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s controversial comments in defense of a temporary gun ban, prompted fierce backlash on social media.

The Democrat issued an emergency public health order, suspending the right to carry guns in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding Bernalillo County for at least 30 days.

Local law enforcement officials expressed concerns that the governor’s order violated Second Amendment rights. The governor acknowledged the ban may face legal challenges and addressed these concerns during a press conference.

“I will be very prepared to deal with any opposition,” explained Grisham. “Thus, I am going to create a law, making it a felony punishable by imprisonment, for anyone that accuses me of violating their constitutional rights.”
