New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a red-flag gun bill Tuesday that will allow state district courts to order the temporary surrender of firearms, and she urged sheriffs to resign if they still refuse to enforce it. Flanked by advocates for stricter gun control and supportive law enforcement officials at a signing ceremony, Lujan Grisham said the legislation provides law enforcement authorities with an urgently needed tool to deter deadly violence by temporarily removing firearms from people who pose a threat to themselves or others. “If they really intend to do that, they should resign as a law enforcement officer and leader in that community,” she said.
A Donald Trump press conference in India descended into a bitter row with CNN reporter Jim Acosta on Tuesday after the president criticised the journalist’s network and the latter replied: “I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes.”Trump has meanwhile secured a lucrative arms deal with the fellow superpower’s prime minister Narendra Modi, a venture he risked putting in jeopardy by refusing to eat any of the vegetarian delicacies – notably broccoli samosas – laid out for him at the Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad on Monday afternoon.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is on good terms with some Democratic exes.While she can’t claim to have raised thousands of dollars from ex-boyfriends, like Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) can, Warren has remained quite friendly with several ex-Democratic presidential candidates. In an interview with NBC News, Warren said she’s texted nature photos with Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) shortly after he dropped out of the race, talked math with Andrew Yang, and kept in touch with former Housing Secretary Julián Castro, who has endorsed her run.But she says Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) have particular insight into what NBC News calls the “loneliness” of the campaign trail, something Warren described as like “living in a movie that is running at high speed with everything coming so quickly.””Kamala and Kirsten, in particular, ask me am I getting rest? Am I eating? And am I having some fun out there?,” said Warren of her fellow women candidates. “It’s a very personal experience to run. Running for president can be thrilling but also very lonely,” she said. “The candidate stands alone.”Warren even got back in good graces with former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) after taking him down a few pegs in one of the first debates. Delaney said her call to wish him well after he dropped out was “quite lengthy and quite in-depth” and showed “she’s not entirely self-absorbed. She actually listens.”Read more about Warren’s relationship with her ex-competitors at NBC News.More stories from theweek.com Harvard scientist predicts coronavirus will infect up to 70 percent of humanity Donald Trump tells biographer he’s the same now as he was in first grade Is Bernie Sanders the Democrats’ Goldwater, Reagan, or Trump?
