January 12—Today, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham held a press conference to unveil her public safety legislative priorities. During her conference, the governor outlined propositions for additional firearm bans, among other plans to give her more executive authority to remove New Mexicans’ rights.
The Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman and former Representative of NM’s Second Congressional District, Steve Pearce, issued the following statement:
“What the governor proposed today was another egregious attack on New Mexicans’ Second Amendment rights,” Pearce said.
“If the governor really cares about keeping our communities safe, she will focus on giving tougher penalties to criminals, keeping criminals behind bars while supporting law enforcement and allowing them to do their job. Republicans will be putting forth multiple bills this session that will get tough on criminals without infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens. The governor’s continued assaults on New Mexicans’ constitutional rights must be stopped.”
