This response by Sate Senator Greg Baca is addressing Governor Lujan Grisham issuing Executive Order No. 2023-130 – Declaring A Public Health Emergency Due To Gun Violence. Executive Order No. 2023-130 may be read HERE.
Senate Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca, pictured, (R-Belen), issued the following statement regarding the order:
“In response to the Governor’s egregiously unconstitutional order, we immediately began the process of preparing a legal challenge, which we plan to file soon. Sadly, this Governor would rather use our State Police to ‘stop and frisk’ law-abiding citizens than have them fully focused on finding and bringing the child killer to justice. There has never been a more justifiable reason to carry a firearm than when there is a monster roaming the streets of our communities. This attack on our right to protect ourselves and our families cannot stand and we expect a swift ruling in favor of the rights of the people of our state.”
