On Friday, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued an emergency order in response to increasing gun violence in the state. The right to carry firearms publicly in Albuquerque and the bordering county will be suspended for at least 30 days. Governor Lujan Grisham expects there to be a backlash to this implementation. However, after a recent shooting that resulted in the death of an 11-year-old Froyland Villegas last week, she was motivated to respond. The suspension is strict and applies to most public spaces, so whether on the sidewalk in downtown Albuquerque or the local park, both open and concealed carry are restricted.

The firearms suspension, classified as an emergency public health order, applies to open and concealed carry in most public places, from city sidewalks to urban recreational parks. The restriction is tied to a threshold for violent crime rates currently only met by metropolitan Albuquerque. Police and licensed security guards are exempt from the temporary ban.

The 39-year-old quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a torn left achilles tendon that will require season-ending surgery, coach Robert Saleh announced Tuesday. On the Jets’ first drive Monday night, Rodgers was injured and required trainers to help him off the field. After a visit to the medical tent, he was carted to the locker room. After initially being labeled as questionable to return with an ankle injury, he was later downgraded to out. The Jets announced that his X-rays were negative. Rodgers suffered the injury after being sacked by veteran pass rusher Leonard Floyd on a first-and-10 with 11:40 remaining in the first quarter. While it appeared at first that Rodgers was OK, he went back down to the turf while officials stopped play.

International

Emergency workers uncovered more than 1,500 bodies in the wreckage of Libya’s eastern city of Derna on Tuesday, and it was feared the toll could surpass 5,000 after floodwaters smashed through dams and washed away entire neighborhoods of the city. The startling death and devastation wreaked by Mediterranean storm Daniel pointed to the storm’s intensity, but also the vulnerability of a nation torn apart by chaos for more than a decade. The country is divided by rival governments, one in the east, the other in the west, and the result has been neglect of infrastructure in many areas. Outside help was only just starting to reach Derna on Tuesday, more than 36 hours after the disaster struck. The floods damaged or destroyed many access roads to the coastal city of some 89,000.

North Korea’s Kim Jong Un rolled through Russia on an armored train on Tuesday toward a meeting with President Vladimir Putin, a rare encounter between isolated leaders driven together by their need for support in escalating standoffs with the West. Kim is expected to seek economic aid and military technology for his impoverished country, and, in a twist, appears to have something Putin desperately needs: munitions for Russia’s grueling war in Ukraine. It’s a chance for the North Korean leader to get around crippling U.N. sanctions and years of diplomatic isolation. For Putin, it’s an opportunity to refill ammunition stores that the war has drained.
