I am visiting relatives in New Mexico and noticed that the leftist government passed a law requiring background checks on gun sales between individuals.
The governor signed it, of course. A quote shows that she apparently has never read the US Constitution:
And as for the argument that the bill limits constitutional rights, the governor countered: “We all have a constitutional right to be safe in our homes and our communities.”
Remind me, Governor, which amendment was that?
Fortunately, there appears to be a lot of pushback on this. The Republicans in the legislature are talking about overturning the law with a referendum to be put on the ballot in 2020. County governments in the state have come up with a better idea:
Meanwhile, officials in 25 of New Mexico’s 33 counties have adopted “Second Amendment Sanctuary” declarations as of Wednesday, effectively refusing to enforce the new law.Published in
