FOX LiveNOW: Attorney Andrew Lieb Breaks Down New Mexico's Controversial Temporary Gun Ban

Andrew Lieb, a legal political analyst, discusses New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's temporary ban on guns in public places with an emergency public health order. Lieb analyzes the order from both a political and constitutional perspective. He notes that while the order may be politically controversial, it attempts to fit within the "sensitive places" doctrine outlined in recent Supreme Court gun rights cases. The order will likely face legal challenges but could force further definition of what constitutes a "sensitive place." Overall, Lieb argues the order highlights the urgent need to address gun violence as a public health crisis through multi-pronged solutions.
