ALBUQUERQUE, NM (September 13, 2023) – Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today that United States District Court Judge David Urias has issued a temporary restraining order against New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s executive order banning firearm carry in Bernalillo County and Albuquerque. The order in Fort v. Grisham, which Judge Urias said will be issued either this afternoon or tomorrow, will be viewable at FPCLaw.org.
“We’re thrilled that the Court has ruled in our favor and upheld the Second Amendment, the U.S. Constitution, and Supreme Court precedent,” said Cody J. Wisniewski, FPC Action Foundation’s General Counsel and Vice President of Legal, and counsel for FPC. “Gov. Grisham’s executive order is blatantly unconstitutional and we look forward to continue proving as much in Court.”
FPC is joined in the litigation by the Second Amendment Foundation and New Mexico Shooting Sports Association.
