New Mexico Sheriff Refuses To Enforce Governor’s Gun Ban

Bernalillo County, New Mexico Sheriff John Allen announced that he will not be enforcing the Governor’s “unconstitutional” gun ban. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced a 30-day ban on open and concealed carry of guns in and around Albuquerque due to a recent surge in gun violence. This action was met with widespread criticism and protest. A large open-carry demonstration in Albuquerque happened after her announcement with no interruption by police.

A day or two after the pro-gun demonstration, Sheriff John Allen took questions at a press conference. He stated that criminals do not follow laws and such a rule preventing the carrying of guns would not help the issue of criminality in New Mexico. He also stated that the 30-day ban on carrying guns is unconstitutional and therefore unenforceable.
