GUN SAFETY VICTORY: Gun Safety Champion Michelle Lujan Grisham Reelected as Governor of New Mexico

Washington DC — Today Giffords PAC, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, congratulated New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham on her reelection. Giffords PAC endorsed Governor Lujan Grisham in March and former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords joined her for a phone bank in Santa Fe in August.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:

“Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham gets things done, and she has a proven track record of fighting for solutions that improve the lives of everyday New Mexicans. She is committed to protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens while taking action to stop the gun violence epidemic ravaging New Mexico. We look forward to continuing to work with her in the fight for commonsense gun safety measures. I extend my deepest congratulations to Governor Lujan Grisham on her victory.”

Governor Lujan Grisham puts the safety of New Mexico’s communities first. In her first term, she championed bipartisan legislation that improved public safety and increased funding for community-based violence intervention programs. In addition to pushing for universal background checks for gun purchases, Governor Lujan Grisham signed legislation allowing courts to temporarily disarm individuals at risk of harming themselves or others. Over the past four years, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has embraced her role as a gun safety champion and has served as an example for governors across the country.
