New Mexico Wastes Police Resources to Shut Down Gun Stores

U.S.A. -( In response to the Covid 19 outbreak, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered the closure of all businesses she doesn’t consider “Essential.” The Governor did not designate firearm stores as “essential,” but many remained open because the Governor’s order did not explicitly order them closed. Your NRA-ILA has now learned that Governor Grisham is making her anti-gun proclivities clear by tasking the State Patrol with driving by gun stores and telling dealers that they are, and will remain, closed to the public. New Mexico residents are encouraged to contact their local firearms dealers to inquire about the potential to make online purchases while the Governor’s order remains in effect.

Meanwhile, in the neighboring state of Colorado, gun stores have been listed as critical businesses and are allowed to operate. The same is true in many states throughout the country. This action by the Governor is not just anti-gun but fails to consider the need for safety and security in these uncertain times. Please contact Governor Grisham at 505-476-2200 and ask her to please respect our right to self-defense and leave gun stores alone.​

“Malfeasance in Office” or “Official Misconduct”, is to knowingly and willfully being involved in an unlawful act, while in an official capacity.


how about felony perjury for swearing her oath of office then refusing to uphold it?

Deplorable Bill

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” A grade school child can easily understand this so, “I didn’t understand it’s implications” or “I was just following orders” are not going to be excuses enough to keep tyrants and traitors off the gallows. The ONLY difference between these tyrants, traitors vs the gustapo and the S.S. are the uniforms. If they want to rule over a communist/socialist country they should move to Russia or China or Saudi Arabia. We sure don’t need or want them here anymore. ANYONE who would delay or deny any… Read more »


“The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” A grade school child can easily understand this …. But he longer they are in the indoctrination centers run by govt they no longer understand that simple language


I feel that there is an underlying reason that “cursive” writing and reading are no longer being taught to our young people: so that they won’t be able to read our Founding Documents and know/understand how our government is supposed to work and what their rights are.

YOU are exactly right as usual. Just following orders is not an excuse it wasn’t in Nuremberg in the 40’s and it is not in New Mexico in 2020. Everyone is responsible for their own actions.

Seems like Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham is trespassing on Congress’ exclusive authority to regulate interstate commerce. I guess this answers the question, “What will the police do when ordered to stop people from exercising their Constitutionally enshrined Civil Rights.
My advice to the NM State Patrol is keep driving right by that gun store … but don’t stop.

And if they stop, consider them to be of the same ilk that ordered the colonists to disarm at Concord Green and deal with them the SAME FKNG WAY!! Why am I pissed? Oh geee, I wonder…

It seems only gun stores in Democrat controlled areas are being ordered to close.


Think anyone else will notice that similarity? There are also a tremendous amount of other similarities that take place within these Democrat controlled cities and states!

Hear Me Roar - Courageous Lion

Don’t you mean commiecrat?

Hear Me Roar - Courageous Lion

Hmmm….interesting consideration.


If businesses exercising the 2A are not essential, you could. Ake the argument that 1A businesses are not essential either and shut down all media outlets. Not that I care for the MSM, but this is a Constitutional attack and this Governor should be sued and impeached.


The gun stores just need to add a can of soup to the order and call it food takeout.


The liberal, paid for Governor Grisham doesn’t give a flying fig about anyone’s rights. She’s a tyrant in the first degree and is only interested in more power and wealth.


They know how to spend your money, and not a penny of theirs.

And the slaves in NM were so happy to “vote” here into her position of psychopathic control freak.

Hear Me Roar - Courageous Lion

Notice how so many of these governors and mayors who are FEMALE are pulling this BS? I guess they have to push their machoness around so we can bow to their vulva.


Friend of mine had a vulva for a while. Supposed to have been very safe but got terrible mileage


Just what is it that these tyrants promise the low info voter to get elected?


Usually legalizing weed, or free stuff. Or both.


This is what happens when men vote for a feminist. The feminist will do everything in her/its power to punish men.

Arizona Don

I know a lot of women who call themselves feminists but do not support any so called democrat positions. New Mexico has nearly always been a democrat stronghold however, they are not just democrats anymore. Or perhaps I should say they ARE indoctrinated democrats fundamentally transformed into communism. Many of the larger cities across the US are also transformed as well.

Right next to Arizona but in no way as diverse or likable as Arizona. However, I have always liked Silver City.


Also, Michigan governor and AG. Same thing.

Hear Me Roar - Courageous Lion

Someone actually voted you down? I brought you back to 0 at least. Because…YOU ARE CORRECT. I like the her/its part.
