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. Moreover, on February 10, Breitbart News reported that 29 of New Mexico’s 33 sheriffs signed a statement against the gun control. And the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association also made clear it planned to sue the state if the new gun control was enacted.

Grisham ignored the sheriffs’ concerns, tweeting, “A few law enforcement officers in this state have been making noise about how they won’t enforce gun safety measures because they don’t like them. That’s not how laws work, of course, and it’s not how oaths of office work either.”

      By this example of a deranged politician, most of them are or will follow her lead and prove to the world they are truly STUPID!!! At any rate, this law will be struck down by the court. The people of New Mexico have no one to blame but themselves. They elected this idiot!!!

      Because they are all using the drugs being carried across their borders. The New Mexican voters should get their non liberal legislators to pass a iniative that requires that the governor do and pass a drug test

    Maybe Grisham should learn how the law works. You cannot enforce an unconstitutional law. Period.

    Explain to me, if we have a 2nd amendment law stating we, the American Citizens have a right to bear arms, how is that against the law? If a person wants to sale a gun or purchase a gun for less than what they would pay for buying one retail, why does the government have a right to prevent that? If it is just to make sure it’s registered, devise a way to check that it is registered just like buying a used vehicle. No, let’s just call it what it is, GUN CONTROL, GUN CONFISCATION!
    A gun does not operate on its on, it’s not the gun’s fault when it is used for bad things, it is the mentally ill or evil person using it. A baseball bat, a knife, a stun gun, a car, a hand grenade etc…all has to have someone to make it operate with an intent to do harm! The people that will be helpless against those mentally ill or evil people, will be those that don’t have access to a gun or any weapon to protect themselves. You can be assured those that want a gun will get a gun on the black market, while those that have loss their right to have one will be left totally helpless.
    Another civil war is coming, the American people are being pushed to the limit and our government senses it. That is why they are pushing so hard to confiscate our guns. DON’T BE FOOLED, BE READY! Our so called representatives are greedy for power, they quit representing the AMERICAN CITIZENS and are PROTECTING ILLEGALS. They want our tax dollars to pay for them so out of their ignorance they will feel obligated to vote for the far left agenda and keep them in power. We are headed for SOCIALISM and heaven help us all! BE READY!

      Nobody can force us to give up our guns, do they not understand THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION SAYS “ A WELL REGULATED MILITIA , BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE , THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED
      Like you said they have pushed us just about as far as they can evidently they want a civil war. When the war starts guess who the people will go after first.
      WE HAVE A BUNCH OF IDIOTS IN THE GOVERNMENT.

    That said and done by the Governor, it’s probably better to keep the than sell them. You might need them.

    There is an agenda why the demonicRats want to abolish the 2nd amendment. It has nothing to do with gun violence. It has everything to do with citizens having no way to defend themselves against the evil deeds that the demos and elitists have planned worldwide. Communism, one world government, police states and the other chaos they have planned. We are headed for evil times. Much worse than we have now. Freedom will be history.

    I live in New Mexico, and i can promise you I never voted for this crook/clown. I have no idea why the majority voted in Grisham and a Democrat legislature. New Mexico is a poor and uneducated state. And they keep doing this. You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Our state will continue to be poor and uneducated. We can not even attract business because we have such a bad work force. Thank goodness we have some sheriffs that will not enforce her ignorant gun laws.

      Thats because of all the illiterate latinos coming in. Politicians are too dumb to understand that.

    Guess I’ll have to go across the border to get my guns. Probably don’t even have to do that as I’m sure a lot of the illegals are bringing some in and are willing to sell them. People in N.M. need guns to protect themself from all the illegal trash that is coming into her state. If she doesnt want guns around, fine, but don’t push in on other people. And hopefully she won’t whine if she gets shot or raped. She has to set an example and have no security around her with guns; otherwise it would make her a hypocrite and if something happens to her…..she was asking for it and it would serve her right.
