Governor to again seek red flag law

LAS CRUCES – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is calling on state lawmakers to pass a red flag law during this legislative session, saying it would save lives in New Mexico.

“This is a temporary removal of a firearm from an individual who poses an extreme risk or threat to themselves or others,” the governor told a news conference in Las Cruces at the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office.

She was flanked by Doña Ana County Sheriff Kim Stewart, Rep. Daymon Ely, D-Corrales, and Sen. Joseph Cervantes, D-Las Cruces.

Under the proposed legislation, a law enforcement officer or family member could request an extreme-risk protection order but would have to provide a sworn affidavit explaining in detail why the order is needed.
