Governor’s Key Advisor Gabello Issues Statement On Call For Special Session Following El Paso Violence

first_imgSTATE News: Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham SANTA FE ― Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s senior advisor for policy and strategy issued the following statement Thursday regarding recent speculation about a special session: “There is great apprehension and fear across New Mexico and farther afield in the wake of last weekend’s horrific, hate-fueled mass violence in El Paso,” Dominic Gabello said. “This state and country are facing real threats from within; proactive measures must be taken. Indeed, this administration championed and implemented key public safety measures during this year’s legislative session aimed at keeping weapons out of dangerous hands and closing loopholes: expanding non-invasive background checks and protecting victims of domestic violence from gun violence. The leadership within the Legislature, including Speaker Egolf, are to be commended for their work on those important issues. The governor also pushed for an extreme-risk protection order bill, sometimes referred to as a ‘red flag’ bill, which the Legislature was not able to pass. Work has been done in the interim to prepare a similar bill that can be approved, work that will continue.center_img “The question is: What can we do in addition to the work we’ve already done to keep New Mexicans safe? This is the genesis of the governor’s domestic terrorism summit next week. That is the avenue for responsible, high-level fact-finding and policy development available to us now. “To call for a special session, to lean into the well-founded fears of violence in this state and elsewhere, without a focused plan, without caucus outreach, is the wrong kind of reactive. We can be quick without hurrying. At delicate moments, we must think before we speak, and we must convene and listen to one another before we act. That doesn’t mean we dawdle or delay. It simply means we act responsibly and in the best interests of all New Mexicans.”last_img read more
