Two Republican legislators in New Mexico have filed a resolution to impeach Democratic Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham over her emergency orders suspending the right to carry firearms in certain public places.

The legislators accuse the governor of violating the state and federal constitutions and abusing her power.

Lujan Grisham’s spokesperson, Maddy Hayden, criticized the resolution as a political stunt.

Hayden said, “There’s not much to say in direct response to this inane effort” to impeach.

Rep. Stefani Lord, founder of the advocacy group Pro-Gun Women, said, “The point is that she 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,’” she continued.

It remains uncertain whether the resolution will advance to public committee deliberations in the state House, where Democrats outnumber Republicans.

The emergency orders were issued in response to gun violence, and legal challenges have been filed by gun rights advocates.

Governor Lujan Grisham has also proposed additional firearms regulations to address gun violence during the legislative session.
