The governor of New Mexico isn’t winning the hearts of conservatives any time soon. Instead, she’s committing what Stu Burguiere believes to be the “real insurrection.”
On Friday, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham issued a “public health emergency order” that suspends the right to bear arms in Albuquerque and surrounding Bernalillo County.
The order applies to concealed or open carry of firearms on public property and lasts 30 days but can be renewed. Police officers and security guards are the only exceptions.
“You might say, ‘Wait, wait, that’s absolutely unconstitutional.’ And you’d be right,” Stu comments.
The governor cited an increase in violent crimes as her reasoning but did not acknowledge that violent crimes does not mean gun crimes.
“So, if a lot of people are being stabbed, we’re not going to ban knives, we’re going to ban guns in that community,” Stu says.
It perhaps could not be more obvious that what the governor is doing is completely unconstitutional.
“The Second Amendment is an affirmative right,” Stu says. “It says what the government cannot do to squash that affirmative right. You have a right to own a firearm and defend yourself. You have a right to do that in this country. This has been litigated for hundreds of years. She 100% knows she’s doing something unconstitutional.”
When asked during a press conference if what she was doing wasn’t clearly unconstitutional, Grisham attempted to rationalize her decision.
“With one exception, and that is if there’s an emergency, and I’ve declared an emergency for a temporary amount of time. I can invoke additional powers. No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute,” Grisham said.
Stu doesn’t believe her for a second.
“Now to be clear, she doesn’t believe anything she just said,” he says.
“She knows this is gonna get shot down in the courts. She knows this is a BS argument, but she’s trying to make it anyway.”
Stu believes that like other liberals, she’s simply “trying to manipulate public health initiatives to justify their unconstitutional actions.”
