Albuquerque City Mayor Uses Current Events to Expand his Ability to Block Second Amendment Rights

Albuquerque City Mayor Uses Current Events to Expand his Ability to Block Second Amendment Rights

Today at 5:00pm, the Albuquerque City Council is scheduled to consider legislation behind closed doors to allow the Mayor to prohibit all firearm transfers during the current COVID-19 outbreak. 

This ordinance would expand the Mayor’s ability to cite “Emergency Powers” as an excuse to undermine our firearms freedoms and ability to defend ourselves.  Using current events and fear of the unknown as a weapon, Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller wants the City Council to approve this measure without public input.  The legislation was placed on the calendar with less than two days’ notice and constituents will not be allowed to attend the hearing.  It is extremely important that you contact members of the Albuquerque City Council and ask them to STRONGLY OPPOSE this unnecessary power grab.


It is unthinkable that city leaders would take advantage of a health crisis to prohibit our Second Amendment rights.  “Emergency Powers” provide a system of remedies for protection and recovery during a time of need.  For Mayor Tim Keller to use this situation to advance his anti-gun agenda is egregious and unconstitutional under New Mexico Law.

Again, please contact members of the Albuquerque City Council and ask them to oppose the Mayor’s unconstitutional power grab.
