Two New Mexico Republicans have filed Articles of Impeachment against Democrat Governor Michelle Grisham over an unconstitutional Second Amendment rule. 

Back in September 2023, RSBN reported that New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham had imposed a 30-day ban on open and concealed firearms in the city of Albuquerque in relation to gun violence.

This ban resulted in a massive outcry from civilians. The suspension was eventually blocked by a federal judge who found the suspension unconstitutional. 

GOP State Representatives John Block and Stefani Lord have now filed articles of impeachment against Grisham. Lord, the founder of an advocacy group called Pro-Gun Women, gave CBS News a statement. Lord said, “The point is that [Grisham] has too much power. We’re just trying to say to her, ‘You have too much power, you’re acting like a dictator. … And we’re going to impeach you.'” 

According to Grisham, the 30-day ban was prompted by the increase in shootings that happened over the summer. This included a fatal shooting that took the life of an 11-year-old boy outside a minor league baseball stadium. 

However, many don’t believe the ban has done anything to prevent gun violence and is just a violation of rights.

Albuquerque Journal shared what Block said, “It warrants impeachment. There is no other remedy.”

Lord told CBS News, “The rights of New Mexicans are not up for debate. No matter how hard Lujan Grisham tries to violate the Constitution. She will never succeed.”

CBS News reported that just recently, Grisham called for a gun safety package. This package includes a ban on assault weapons, raises the weapon purchase age limit to 21 and imposes a 14-day waiting period for purchased weapons. 

It’s not just Block and Lord who are fighting against Grisham’s actions. Gun rights advocates like the National Rifle Association have brought a lawsuit against her. 

For now, the House and the Senate will have to vote to impeach.
