Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists … I repeat: what went on up there was domestic terrorism.
Just realized that the whole Bundy Vs. Feds showdown kind of dismantles the argument against the Second Amendment about how guns are only meant for militias, because the people who make that argument aren’t going to want to say they support what those people did.
this is painful to look at
I want everyone to be aware of this. Those of you who say, “People who want guns to ‘protect themselves from the government’ or paranoid gun nuts. What would they ever do to us?” I’ll tell you. They’ll seize your property, take your land, do it all in the name of turtles, and when you refuse to give it up, they’ll send in the troops, and move protestors to a government designated “free speech zone”. The question isn’t what would the government do.
It’s what wouldn’t they?
Q:Can you explain what is happening at the Bundy ranch?
If it is ok, I am going to direct you to an article on The Blaze that explains the situation.

BUNKERVILLE — Hundreds of ranchers and supporters of Cliven Bundy, some of them armed, began to mobilize late this morning to free some of the cattle that were rounded up by federal agents and are now being held in a corral outside of Mesquite. The mobilization occurred about an hour and a half after BLM decided to halt the round up due to safey concerns. BLM director Neil Kornze said in a statement Saturday, “Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of the public.” Just afterward, rancher Cliven Bundy demanded that all national park service employees working on the cattle roundup operation be disarmed before 10:45 a.m. He gave Clark County sheriff Doug Gillespie, who was flanked by men in camouflage, one hour to comply, and added for the firearms to be brought to him. At 11 a.m. some in the crowd began mobilizing in an attempt to force the BLM to free the cattle that had already been caught. They were armed and en route to a BLM corral outside of Mesquite.
Bundy Ranch Update
Cliven rejected the offer and has demanded that his cattle be returned to him and that the county sheriff do his sworn duty to disarm and remove the federal agents from the scene. Protesters have moved on the BLM base camp where the cattle are being held and are engaged in a standoff with the federal agents at the camp. The Feds have reportedly threatened to fire on the crowd if they cross a barricade that has been erected in the road to the camp.

Heard the claims being thrown around that the BLM move on the Bundy ranch was because of the ultimate goal of building a solar/wind farm on the land, but wanted to hear it from a more definitive souce.
Here you go.
