Senator Carroll Condemns New Mexico's Ban on Guns,
Vows to Protect Arizonans from Deliberate Violation of Constitutional Rights
PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senator Frank Carroll is condemning the tyrannical and unconstitutional maneuver of banning guns in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County by New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
He promises to protect Arizonans from any similar infringement by the Executive Branch on your second amendment right to keep and bear arms and issues the following statement:
"I'm appalled at what has transpired in the great state of New Mexico. Their radical Democrat Governor is setting a dangerous precedent by violating their law-abiding citizens' constitutional right to protect themselves, their family, and their property against dangerous criminals," said Senator Carroll. "Every single American should be outraged at the reckless political agenda that continues to be forced by the Left to control you and undo the principles of freedom, liberty and democracy established by our nation's Founding Fathers."
"While Governor Katie Hobbs has also launched her own battle against the firearms industry this year by vetoing my proposed legislation SB 1096, I promise to fight back to protect your second amendment rights and to prevent any discrimination against you for exercising them," said Senator Carroll. "The Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature will also continue to serve as a check and balance to block any unconstitutional mandates issued in an effort to undermine your freedoms."
