New Mexico’s 2024 legislative term has sparked controversy with proposed gun control measures, prompting a battle with the NRA.

Governor Lujan Grisham aims to pass a comprehensive gun safety package, including bans on assault weapons, raising the legal purchase age to 21, and implementing waiting periods and penalties for felons.

The proposed bills have drawn criticism and legal challenges from the NRA, with concerns about constitutional rights and public safety at the forefront of the debate. (Trending: Two Names Emerge As Trump’s Possible 2024 Running Mate)

“Extremist Governor Lujan Grisham and her allies have unleashed a barrage of gun control proposals that punish the lawful … while ignoring criminals. Last year, Lujan Grisham effectively suspended the Second Amendment by denying citizens their right to carry and self-defense,” NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) Executive Director Randy Kozuch said.

“Now, she’s doubling down on her attacks, effectively torching the Constitution with her latest gun control insanity.”

“I’m calling for a gun safety package. It bans assault weapons, raises the legal purchase for all guns to 21, institutes a 14-day waiting period, increasing penalties for felons in possession of a firearm, keeps guns out of parks and playgrounds and allows law enforcement officers to now file extreme risk protection orders,” Lujan Grisham said.

“I want to be very clear: No responsible gun owner should be punished or prevented from exercising their right. And no child should ever be put in danger by a weapon of war, especially one wielded by a person who can’t pass a background check or can’t wait two weeks to get a firearm.”

“This is, without a doubt, the largest and most comprehensive public safety package in our state’s history,” Lujan Grisham stated. “Gun violence is a significant contributor to the cycles of crime in our communities, and we will continue to use every tool at our disposal to end this epidemic.

“Likewise, we will strengthen our support for law enforcement, increase penalties for violent crimes and, once again, pursue legislation to keep violent offenders behind bars pending trial. All of this will build upon the progress and investments we’ve made in previous years.”

“As a clear enemy of the Second Amendment and our self-defense rights, Governor Lujan Grisham is already being challenged by the NRA in the New Mexico Supreme Court. We remain on the front lines, ready to combat each and every one of her new oppressive gun control measures. The NRA stands with freedom-loving New Mexicans against Lujan Grisham’s assault,” Kozuch said.

“No constitutional right, in my view, including my oath, is intended to be absolute,” Lujan Grisham said.
