New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham didn’t have much to say about the indictment of presidential son Hunter Biden on felony gun charges after she moved to strip her citizens of their Second Amendment rights.
Grisham, an anti-gun zealot, repurposed the authoritarian “public health” emergencies used by her fellow Democrat governors to lock down their states during the COVID crisis to target law-abiding firearm owners by cracking down on their open and concealed carry rights in a brazen assault on the U.S. Constitution. The order drew bipartisan condemnation and was promptly reigned in by a federal judge.
The governor justified her short-lived measure as being a necessary response to gun-related violence, including the death of an 11-year-old boy who was shot outside of a minor league baseball stadium, a typically Democrat reaction to address societal problems by imbuing themselves with dictatorial power through the use of edicts.
The Governor of New Mexico has just declared the 1st & 2nd Amendment “does not exist” due to an “emergency.”
Under this legal theory *all* of our “rights” are essentially eliminated.

When Fox News Digital reached out to Governor Grisham’s office for a comment on special counsel David Weiss’s firearm-related charges against President Joe Biden’s son, they were met with silence.
“When asked by Fox News Digital if Lujan Grisham had any comment on the charges against Biden, her office declined to comment,” the outlet reported.
On Thursday, the news broke that Hunter Biden had been indicted on the charges stemming from his 2018 purchase of a firearm from a Delaware gun shop and that he lied on federal form about his fondness for crack rocks when he “provided a written statement on Form 4473 certifying he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, and any other controlled substance.” The gun was later discarded in a grocery store trash can in the vicinity of a high school.
The intense reaction to Governor Grisham’s unconstitutional gun ban – which was also criticized by loopy anti-gun Democrats including Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) and activist David Hogg – forced her into full retreat, backing down on Friday in walking back her tyrannical order from all of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County to only parks and playgrounds where children are typically present.
I have amended the public health order to specify that you cannot carry #guns in city parks or playgrounds in Albuquerque & Bernalillo Co. I respect the judge’s decision on the last public order, but I am far from done fighting to protect New Mexicans. https://t.co/Ox2nNIilrs

“I’m going to continue pushing to make sure that all of us are using every resource available to put an end to this public health emergency with the urgency it deserves,” Grisham defiantly said in a statement that was effectively a declaration of surrender. “I will not accept the status quo – enough is enough.”
