If someone doesn’t commit a crime, is it news? Can things really be that violent in New Mexico? Anyway it apparently qualifies as news if you have a pellet gun in your backpack. In Las Cruces. And – OMG OMG OMG – near a school. As the lcsun-news.com reports, though, it’s still not against the law. “The man, who had been riding his bike wearing a backpack with a pellet gun rifle sticking out of it, had stopped because he was feeling ill and had decided to sit down near the school, according to LCPD Sgt. Kiri Daines. He never took the rifle out of his backpack and was not cited, Daines said.” In other news, a Santa Fe woman didn’t attempt to hijack a plane with 152 passengers on board today. Film at eleven.
