New Mexico Governor Grisham is following the traditional Democrat playbook and engaging in massive resistance to the federal court’s injunction prohibiting her from enforcing or attempting to enforce her facially unconstitutional ban on the carrying of firearms in Albuquerque and Bernadillo County. She announced that she is amending her executive order so that is only applies to parks and playgrounds.
However, the judge’s order states—
In addition, Defendants are ENJOINED from applying, enforcing, or attempting to enforce, either criminally or civilly, Section (4) of the New Mexico Department of Health’s ‘Public Health Emergency Order Imposing Temporary Firearm Restrictions, Drug Monitoring and Other Public Safety Measures’ to the extent it imposes additional restrictions on the carrying or possession of firearms that were not already in place prior to its issuance.
Because the ban on carrying in parks and playground did not exist prior to the issuance of the executive order, reinstating it appears to be an explicit violation of the injunction.
