A federal judge in Albuquerque, New Mexico, issued a temporary restraining order against an executive order by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, effectively blocking significant portions of the anti-gun executive order in the land of enchantment.
This order had previously suspended open and concealed carry rights in Albuquerque and the encompassing Bernalillo County for a duration of 30 days.
The ruling was delivered on Wednesday by U.S. District Court Judge David Urias, an appointee of President Biden. He specifically halted the segment of the order that barred lawful gun owners from exercising their right to bear arms in public for the stipulated 30 days. His rationale was clear and constitutionally grounded.
“The violation of a constitutional right, even for minimal periods of time, unquestionably constitutes irreparable injury,” Urias said.
This restraining order is set to remain in place until at least October 3, which date marks the next scheduled hearing on this matter.
