29 of New Mexico’s 33 Sheriffs Sign Statement Against Red Flag Law

Twenty-nine of New Mexico’s 33 Sheriffs signed a statement against a red flag law, universal background checks, and other gun controls being pushed by the state’s Democrat lawmakers.

This is not going to affect the criminals out there. They’re going to be able to get guns and they do not follow the law.” State Rep. Joy Garratt (D) is pushing the red flag / gun confiscation law. She claims such a law would have stopped the February 14, 2018, Parkland school shooting from occurring. She said, “Had this bill been there they would have been able to remove his weapons temporarily while he got the mental health and law enforcement investigation that should have been done,” Garratt does not mention that Florida adopted just such a gun confiscation law after Parkland, and that law did nothing to prevent the August 26, 2018, Jacksonville Landing shooting, in which three were killed.

Since we have a new governor our state "The Land of Enhancement" has become the State of Socialism. Your tax money is being used to destroy our state, inch by inch, regulation by regulation, stupidity by stupidity all of it originating in Santa Fe at the Hot House of perfumed princes sitting at desks with their feet up, congratulating themselves on what they are putting over on the rest of us. Now if you don't think that elections have consequences think again as you see our state crumbling into the dust on no consequence. Watch business flee to Texas. Watch tourists go to Texas and watch Santa Fe dry up as the criminals of that place take over the city. What a mess. Who will clean it up? Can it ever be cleaned up? You will be the next person Red Flagged, just wait.
