    Default New Mexico - Public health crisis leads to suspension of legal concealed carry

    "New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Friday issued an emergency order suspending the right to carry firearms in public across Albuquerque and the surrounding county for at least 30 days in the midst of a spate of gun violence.

    The Democratic governor said she is expecting legal challenges but felt compelled to act in response to gun deaths, including the fatal shooting of an 11-year-old boy outside a minor league baseball stadium this week.

    The firearms suspension is tied to a threshold for violent crime rates that only the Albuquerque area currently meets. Police and licensed security guards are exempt from the temporary ban.

    The order calls for “civil administrative penalties available by law" that include a fine of up to $5,000, said Caroline Sweeney, a spokeswoman for the governor."

    "The governor signed an executive order on Thursday to declare gun violence a public health emergency, noting that guns are the leading cause of death of children in the state. "

    Grisham is probably hoping for a legal challenge, in the hope that Lawfare will win the day.
