The New Mexico State Fair wrapped up a couple of weeks ago, but prior to the event the local news was touting the State Police use of mobile command centers with vertically telescoping periscopes to keep an eye out for criminal activities, which have become an increasing problem. But, do you think concealed carry is permitted so that trained and vetted persons might protect themselves and their families? Nope.
Anyway, I gave up on the State Fair years ago. My kids are grown (it's way more fun with kids, ya know) and my first grandchild isn't due until next April. Also, (disregarding the criminal activity) the quality of the fair seems to have degraded over the past couple of decades.
