New Mexico Governor to Sheriffs: Enforce Gun Law or Resign

Thursday, February 27, 2020

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a red-flag gun bill Tuesday that will allow state district courts to order the temporary surrender of firearms, and she urged sheriffs to resign if they still refuse to enforce it.

Lujan Grisham said sheriffs should have the opportunity to oppose any proposed policy change, but “they cannot not enforce.”

“If they really intend to do that, they should resign as a law enforcement officer and leader in that community,” she said.

Tyrant authorities like Governor Grisham will always try to demonize, marginalize, vilify – and call for the resignation – of any lesser magistrates who interpose against their tyranny.

The response of the New Mexico Sheriff’s Association is excellent and needed.

New Mexico Sheriffs’ Association President Tony Mace of Cibola County said the new law goes too far by potentially impounding guns before any crime is committed and that he and other sheriffs will assert their discretion over its enforcement.

“We don’t work for the governor, we don’t work for the Legislature,” he said. “We work for the people that elected us into office.”

Americans need to rally to the interposition of any sheriff in New Mexico that does right and defies tyrants like Governor Grisham.
