New Mexico’s Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed legislation Friday effectively criminalizing private gun sales in the state. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the legislation has divided Democratic state legislators from many country governments and sheriffs’ offices that oppose it. The governor dismissed opposition as NRA hacks, arguing “It’s clear to me that the NRA isn’t going to stop trying to meddle in making this a safer state.” The move comes after 21 of New Mexico’s 33 counties declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” and 29 of New Mexico’s 33 sheriffs signed a statement to that effect. Look for crime to be on a meteoric rise in the state.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) signed legislation Friday to criminalize private gun sales in the state.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reported that there has been a great divide over the bill, with state-level Democrats pushing it while gun rights groups, the vast majority of New Mexico Sheriffs, and New Mexico county governments oppose it.
Grisham dismissed those who did not support the gun control push, saying, “It’s clear to me that the NRA isn’t going to stop trying to meddle in making this a safer state.”
On March 2, Breitbart News reported that 21 of New Mexico’s 33 counties had declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries,” to indicate they would not be enforcing the gun control.
