Sadly, nothing surprises me in this world. The latest event being reported on daily is the armed Oregon takeover by Ammon Bundy and his band of ignorant misfits.
I realized after the last armed takeover by this bunch, and the federal government backed off, it was only a matter of time until this gang of fools returned with act two.
They claim the federal government stole the land from ranchers when, in fact, the land was purchased at a fair price during the depression so the ranchers would receive something for their acreage.
I understand why the federal government wants to wait this bunch out, but they need to be arrested and charged for crimes they have committed and have their right to bear arms rescinded!
Never miss a local story.
This band of knuckleheads would have avoided all this grandstanding if they had done what any intelligent, law-abiding American would do. File a lawsuit and determine if they have a standing regarding their claims.
