New Mexico Republicans believe Democrats will back impeachment of left-wing governor over ‘rogue’ gun order

New Mexico Republican lawmakers are calling to impeach Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham over a recent firearms order, accusing her of being “unfit for office.”

State Reps. Stefani Lord and John Block addressed growing calls for Lujan Grisham’s ousting after she temporarily suspended open and concealed carry laws in Bernalillo County for at least 30 days, starting Sept. 8, under an emergency health order. 

The lawmakers said during “Fox & Friends” the effort could garner Democrats’ support amid bipartisan criticism. 

“I was completely shocked that rather than addressing the crime issue at its core, the governor decided to go ahead and go rogue and restrict law-abiding citizens from owning their guns,” Lord told Brian Kilmeade Monday. “And for those of you that don’t know, we have an extremely tyrannical governor that has destroyed our beautiful state with her failed policies.”
