Deming, New Mexico

We left Indian Bread Rocks Campground near Bowie, AZ this morning and made it to fabulous Deming, NM; about two hours away. We're headed to Carlsbad Caverns with a stop or two along the way. 

Today was a day to run a few errands.  I got laundry done and did some shopping as well. Rudy hung out in the MoFo, of course. And tonight we'll camp in another luxurious Walmart parking lot! .

Inflammatory Opinion of the Day:
The head of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre said today (without providing any evidence) that protesters are being paid $1,500 a week. Which is roughly what the NRA bribes members of Congress with every day. He also said: "According to the FBI, Mexican drug cartels are working with 100,000 street gang members in Chicago alone." As opposed America's gun cartel which is working with Congress to keep Chicago flush with weapons.

My father made gunstocks for a living and I support gun ownership for those who are qualified and responsible. What I cannot support are the dumbasses in the NRA and in Congress who do not care enough about saving lives to consider reasonable controls. Last week's move in the House to roll back the Executive Order restricting gun sales to the severely mentally ill is a good example.
