A federal judge issued a ruling Wednesday that temporarily blocks the state from enforcing portions of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s order suspending the right to carry firearms in public in and around Albuquerque to help combat gun violence.

U.S. District Judge David Urias of Albuquerque approved the temporary restraining order through Oct. 3, effectively siding with attorneys who have filed a flurry of lawsuits since Friday, when the governor issued the public health order.

Urias issued the ruling in a packed courtroom at the U.S. District Courthouse in Albuquerque after hearing from attorneys from as far away as Arizona and Connecticut who challenged Lujan Grisham’s order.

“We have a room full of lawyers today,” Urias said moments after he entered the courtroom Wednesday.

The governor, meanwhile, was represented by a single attorney, who sat alone at her own table and asked the judge to keep the 30-day order in effect.

Shortly after Urias handed down the ruling, Lujan Grisham issued a statement defending her actions.

“As governor, I see the pain of families who lost their loved ones to gun violence every single day, and I will never stop fighting to prevent other families from enduring these tragedies,” Lujan Grisham said in the written statement.

“Over the past four days, I’ve seen more attention on resolving the crisis of gun violence than I have in the past four years,” she said.
