NextImg:GOP presidential candidates slam New Mexico governor's gun carry ban


Two Republican presidential candidates are going after Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham's (D-NM) executive action to ban the right to carry firearms in public for 30 days in the Albuquerque area.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy blasted Grisham's action as infringing on the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution, which allows for the right to bear arms.

DeSantis slammed Grisham for using a public health emergency "for depriving citizens of civil liberties and trampling on our Constitutional rights" and promised to never infringe on Second Amendment rights if elected president.


"Just a few months after ending the COVID 'public health emergency,' the Governor of New Mexico has declared a new 'public health emergency': Guns. She is now asserting the power to infringe on Second Amendment rights by executive fiat. This assertion is not surprising — since 2020, 'public health' has become a pretext for depriving citizens of civil liberties and trampling on our Constitutional rights. It ends when I am President. Your 2nd Amendment rights SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED," DeSantis wrote in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Ramaswamy reminded Grisham that the Second Amendment in the Constitution is a "right," not a "recommendation," and urged action on securing the southern border to reduce crime in a post on X on Saturday.


"The 2nd amendment isn’t a recommendation. It’s a right. Friendly suggestion to [Grisham] on how to actually reduce violent crime in your state: focus on sealing your own state’s southern border & stop the virtue signaling elsewhere," Ramaswamy posted.

The order from Grisham came after she declared a public health emergency on gun violence, and she said at a press conference on Friday that she expects to have legal challenges to her sweeping order.

Under the ban, those who do not abide by the new restrictions will be fined up to $5,000. Those with carry permits may still transport their gun to some locations, like a gun range or gun store, as long as the weapon has a mechanism that prevents it from being discharged.
