New Mexico: State and Local Lawmakers Take Action Against Governor’s Gun Ban Orders

Last week, NRA filed a state lawsuit against Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s illegal and unconstitutional gun carry ban in Albuquerque & Bernalillo County, and on all state property across New Mexico. We were joined by the entire Republican Caucuses of both the New Mexico House and Senate, as well as by the New Mexico Republican Party, the New Mexico Libertarian Party, and freedom-loving citizens of New Mexico who were impacted by the governor’s extremist edicts. NRA-ILA would like to thank these Republican state lawmakers from the Land of Enchantment who signed onto this litigation in support of your Second Amendment rights. If your state legislators are on this list, please take a moment to send them a note of thanks at their email addresses below. If you don’t know who your state lawmakers are, click here.

NRA-ILA would also like to thank the following Democrat state lawmakers who promptly delivered a letter to the governor after she announced her radical orders, urging her to rescind them immediately. Please take a moment to thank them for the actions they took, to stand with law-abiding gun owners and law enforcement against her radical progressive agenda:

Rep. Ambrose Castellano (D-San Miguel & Torrance-70) [email protected]

Rep. Harry Garcia (D-Bern, Cib., McK,S.J., Soc. & Val-69) [email protected]

Rep. Tara Jaramillo (D-Doña Ana, Sierra & Socorro-38) [email protected]

Rep. Patricia Lundstrom (D-McKinley- 9) [email protected]

Rep. Willie Madrid (D-Doña Ana & Otero-53) [email protected]

Rep. Joseph Sanchez (D-Colfax, Mora, R.A., S.M. & Taos-40) [email protected]

Lastly, we would like to recognize the efforts of certain Albuquerque City Councilmembers, who have drafted and introduced resolutions urging state legislative action on the issues of public safety and behavioral health improvement, affirming the city’s support of the constitutional right of its citizens to keep and bear arms, and declaring its opposition to the governor’s orders (Resolutions R-23-170 and R-23-171, click to view copies of resolutions). These local resolutions could be heard as early as the October 2nd, city council meeting. Please express your gratitude to them for their work to push back on the governor’s anti-gun administrative fiat:

District 5 Councilor Dan Lewis [email protected]

District 4 Councilor Brook Bassan [email protected]

District 9 Councilor Renee Grout [email protected]

District 1 Councilor Louie Sanchez [email protected]

While a temporary restraining order has been issued by a federal court against some of the governor’s original orders, and she has scaled back some of that order, NRA will continue to pursue our lawsuit in state court to hold her accountable for her unlawful and unconstitutional actions, and to prevent her and anti-gun politicians in other states from using such orders in the future to circumvent state legislatures and attempt to override state and U.S. constitutions to obliterate our Second Amendment rights. 

Sincerely,
NRA Institute for Legislative Action
