SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said she hopes to see strong leadership in the law enforcement community to implement a red flag gun initiative approved this week by the state’s Democrat-led Legislature.
The second-year Democratic governor told news reporters Friday that she plans to sign the bill as soon as it reaches her desk after routine clerical procedures.
The legislation allows police and sheriffs deputies to petition a court for the surrender of household firearms from people who appear to pose a danger to themselves or others.

Petitions can be based on sworn affidavits filed by relatives, employers or school administrators, and authorities can be held liable for officers who fail to enforce the law.
