Trump Rules Firearms are Essential – Gov. Lujan (Grab Ass) Grisham Gets to Pout

Trump Right To Keep and Bear Arms

Trump Right To Keep and Bear Arms

We know the government in charge of New Mexico is anti-gun.  Started with the Land Commissioner banning coyote hunting and then she banned shooting in the Bosque Wildlife Preserve.    That was followed by unconstitutional Red Flag Laws and lastly, forcing gun businesses to shut down, also in violation of the Constitution.  Thankfully, President Trump has stepped in.

In the midst of state and local authorities in some areas moving to close gun shops during the coronavirus emergency, the Trump administration stepped in Saturday to make clear such outlets are “essential.”

The Second Amendment which guarantees private gun ownership as a constitutional right in the U.S. also extends protections to commercial gun sellers, according to the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which issued the guidance.

Under the section on “law enforcement, public safety and other first responders,” the list includes, “workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors and shooting ranges.”

In largely Democratic states such as California and New Jersey, state and local authorities cited the lack of clear DHS guidelines as one reason they were moving to shut down the purchase and, in some cases, manufacturing of firearms.  However we know in New Mexico it was strictly a desire to squash everything firearm related.

Some legal challenges have already been filed against such actions. On Friday, the NRA filed a federal suit in California to stop instances where local officials interpreted Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s “shelter in place” orders as making gun stores “non-essential.”

The NRA and other Second Amendment groups depicted the targeting of gun stores as an attempt to realize political goals under the cloak of emergency public safety measures.

“NRA members recognize these unlawful power-grabs for what they are, and the National Rifle Association is proud to stand and fight alongside fellow Second Amendment groups who recognize it as well,” said Jason Ouimet, the executive director of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action.

The Institute for Justice and the Gun Owners of America were most vocal and did most of the leg work to get this action taken.  Thanks to everyone who worked on this important action.


As a result, New Mexico Weapons is fully back in business to sell you firearms, ammunition, and to help with your firearms transfers, both from online sellers and private transactions.

We will continue to follow safe-distance guidelines for everyone’s safety.
