Blog Post: A Constitutional Crisis in New Mexico: The Governor's Childish Game of "Simon Says" with

Ah, the land of the free and the home of the brave! Where elected officials take an oath to uphold the Constitution, then play "Simon Says" with our rights. Today's contestant in this game of constitutional roulette is none other than the Governor of New Mexico. She's proposed a gun ban in Albuquerque that's as constitutionally sound as a house of cards in a windstorm. Let's dive into this comedy of errors, shall we?


The Second Amendment: Not a Suggestion, Folks!

The Second Amendment is pretty straightforward: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." It's not written in invisible ink or ancient hieroglyphics. Yet, our dear Governor seems to think it's more of a suggestion than a right.


The Supreme Court's "Unlimited" Wisdom

Ah, the Supreme Court, the ultimate referee in the game of "Is This Constitutional?" They've said time and again that the Second Amendment is compatible with some regulations. But let's be clear: "some" doesn't mean "let's ban all the guns and make everyone play hopscotch instead."


The Governor's "Brilliant" Plan: A Constitutional Whoopsie-Daisy

According to CNN, our Governor has a master plan to reduce crime: take away the guns! Because, you know, criminals are well-known for following laws. It's like trying to put out a fire with gasoline—what could possibly go wrong?


Treason: A Term Too Strong or Just Right?

Treason is a big word, like "antidisestablishmentarianism," but it's a lot more serious. The Constitution defines it as "levying War against [the United States], or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." While the Governor's actions may not be treason in the "let's start a war" sense, they're certainly a slap in the face to the Constitution. Maybe not treason, but let's call it "constitutional comedy."


Conclusion

The Governor's plan to ban guns in Albuquerque is like trying to fix a leaky faucet with a sledgehammer—it's overkill and misses the point entirely. As proud Americans, it's our job to call out these follies for what they are: a childish game of "Simon Says" with our constitutional rights.


Thought-Provoking Questions

1. Is the Governor's proposed gun ban a game of "Simon Says" gone wrong?

2. How many Supreme Court rulings does it take to screw in a lightbulb—or uphold the Second Amendment?

3. Is "treason" too strong a word, or should we go with "constitutional comedy" instead?


Remember, folks, the Constitution isn't a toy, and our rights aren't part of a game. Let's keep the comedy in the sitcoms and the lawmaking to those who understand the rulebook.
