More Pushback on Suspension of Constitution in New Mexico

Pushback continues against New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s full frontal assault on the US Constitution. Her absurd “emergency” decree canceling gun rights in the name of public health has provoked numerous lawsuits. State Attorney General Raul Torrez refuses to defend her in court:

“Though I recognize my statutory obligation as New Mexico’s chief legal officer to defend state officials when they are sued in their official capacity, my duty to uphold and defend the constitutional rights of every citizen takes precedence,” his letter continued. “Simply put, I do not believe that the Emergency Order will have any meaningful impact on public safety but, more importantly, I do not believe it passes constitutional muster.”

That is putting it mildly. The decree’s only purpose is to attack the Constitution. As many have observed, it would be unlikely to reduce gun violence.

Torrez takes the tyrant to the woodshed:

“I encourage you to engage in a more thoughtful and deliberative process with members of the New Mexico Legislature rather than taking unilateral action that infringes on the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens while having little if any discernible impact on the underlying dynamics driving gun violence in our community.”

Just the response you would expect of an American patriot. However, Torrez is a Democrat — and he isn’t alone:

Albuquerque Mayor Tim Keller, also a Democrat, said in a statement to social media that the city’s police force would not be responsible for enforcing the governor’s order. Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen announced on Monday that he would not enforce the order either, calling it unconstitutional.

The Southwest’s answer to Gretchen Whitmer remains defiant:

Lujan Grisham responded to Allen in a statement to the NM Political Report, saying that her administration had “given you the tools, Sheriff Allen — now stop being squeamish about using them.”

Law enforcement had better not be squeamish with leftists in charge.

Lujan Grisham said in an interview on CNN: “It’s not for police to tell me what’s constitutional or not.”

What the police need to tell her is that depriving Americans of their constitutional rights is a violation of federal law punishable by up to 10 years in prison. They need to tell her this as they escort her out of her office in handcuffs.

Looks like Democrats overstepped in their eagerness to disarm us and now have to backpedal. That would be why lunatic leftists Ted Lieu and David Hogg both suddenly discovered a love of the Constitution and denounced Lujan Grisham for attacking it, using identical language in a clear indication that orders had come down from on high to strategically step back for now.

It also looks like a schism could be developing within the party between those who are truly evil and those who ended up Democrats by some horrible mistake, and who actually believe in freedom and America. Hopefully the latter group is large enough to cause the party to collapse when they bolt from it.
