Illinois might have been one of the first states to embrace Second Amendment Sanctuaries, but we aren't alone any longer.  Yes, pity poor New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (pictured above). Some county sheriffs in her state have announced their intention to ignore Democrat-sponsored bans on private gun transfers should they become law.

And instead of meeting with the sheriffs to discuss their concerns, the Governor took to Twitter to demean them with childish personal attacks.

A childish pity party? Because the sheriffs have vowed not to enforce unconstitutional mandates from New Mexico's state government? It's true. The sheriffs in almost two-thirds of the Land of Enchantment counties have declared themselves 'Second Amendment Sanctuaries".

Breitbart has that story:

The latest count on the public backlash against gun control reveals that 21 of New Mexico’s 33 counties have now declared themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries.”

The declarations signal that the commissions in those counties stand with their sheriffs in refusing to enforce the latest state-level, Democrat-sponsored gun control.

Indeed. The governor is upset about the sheriffs' refusal to obey the rule of law.

But there seems to be some confusion about which laws must be enforced and which can be ignored in New Mexico. Democrats there have made it clear they want the state to become a sanctuary for illegal aliens.

From the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal:

New Mexico, the state with the largest percentage of Hispanic residents in the nation, could be the latest to adopt sanctuary status regarding immigrants, under a Democratic plan.

Identical Democratic proposals introduced in the New Mexico House and Senate say state agencies would be barred from cooperating with federal immigration authorities seeking to hold or deport immigrants suspected of being in the U.S. illegally.

The authority of sheriffs and jails to hold federal immigrant detainees also would see new limits.

In addition, state agencies couldn’t use public funds to help federal authorities in “detecting, apprehending, arresting, detaining or prolonging the detention of a person” facing possible deportation.

So it's not okay for New Mexico county sheriffs to refuse to enforce laws that violate law-abiding Americans' Second Amendment rights, but it is okay for New Mexico Democrats to block enforcement of federal laws on illegal aliens committing immigration fraud, identity fraud, benefits fraud, tax fraud, and who knows how many other felonies during their time here? All the while ignoring employment rules and deportation orders.

Indeed, if it weren't for double-standards, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and her fellow New Mexico Democrats wouldn't have any standards at all.

  1. Screw democrats. Someone needs to march on the capitol and drag some politicians to the town square and vacate their office. Doesn’t even need to be gun play to do it. Just get enough people to help out and they will learn they are not leaders, they are elected servants. 

  2. Why do democrats refuse to enforce immigration laws but squeal when 2nd amendment supporters refuses to enforce over the top gun control laws?

  3. Good word in a Portrait looking woman.

    Looks like Illinois sanctuary counties idea is catching on.

  4. tough s**t: if the unconstitutional/illegal commie-mommie don't like it, then GTFO & stay out
