New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) on Tuesday signed into law a measure that grants courts the permission to authorize temporary seizures of guns from individuals deemed to be a threat to themselves or others.

Grisham said in a statement that the so-called red flag law would reduce the state’s “unacceptable suicide rate and other forms of gun violence.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“The Legislature had the strength to pass this measure because we all recognize: Enough is enough,” she said. “And we have the power to change the dynamic of gun violence in our communities. Today we are standing up – we do not accept the status quo; we do not accept the risk posed by dangerous armed individuals who have articulated their desire to cause harm.”

“Today I signed into law an important measure enhancing public safety & reducing the risk of mass gun violence, creating extreme-risk protection orders & empowering law enforcement to temporarily disarm individuals who present a clear danger to themselves or others,” Grisham tweeted on Tuesday.

In additional tweets, Gov. Grisham added, “With this life-saving legislation, N.M. has balanced individual rights & public safety in a responsible way that will reduce our unacceptable suicide rate & other forms of gun violence. The Legislature had the strength to pass #SB5 because we all recognize: Enough is enough.

“Today we are standing up – we do not accept the status quo; we do not accept the risk posed by dangerous armed individuals who desire to cause harm. This law is a good public safety measure, & if it saves even one life, & it will, we will have done good work.”
