Armed protesters at national wildlife refuge say government force would risk lives
Armed protesters occupying a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon—including three sons of a Nevada rancher who battled with the government in 2014—warned Sunday that any use of force by law enforcement agencies would be “putting lives at risk.”
Hours into the occupation by activists and militiamen a spokesman for the group told reporters that there has been no contact with the FBI or other government law enforcement since the occupation began Saturday night.
“They should be constitutional,” said spokesman Ammon Bundy, referring to the government. He is a son of Cliven Bundy, a Nevada rancher who clashed with the feds two years ago.
Ammon Bundy said if the government did use force to retake the Malheur National Wildlife refuge “they would be putting lives at risk.” SOURCE
Americans are ANGRY and are expecting the remainder of the Obama regime and it’s reign to be a WAR on Conservatives and gun owners.
Does anyone think there is so much as a drop of sincerity here? Republican presidential candidates are attacking President Obama’s plan to use his Oval Office powers to try to tighten gun-control laws, arguing his efforts are “unconstitutional” and another attempt to sidestep Congress.
Personally, I believe most of these cretins are doing nothing more than pandering to the American gun owners and Conservatives as they try to convince us that THEY are on OUR side and try to fool voters into supporting them.
All of this brouhaha, at least this time, has been brought on because of the way the Feds are imposing what I see as *double jeopardy* on these folks in Oregon.
The 73-year-old rancher and his 46-year-old son claim they lit the fires in 2001 and 2006 to reduce the growth of invasive plants and protect their property from wildfires. The two were convicted of the arsons three years ago and served time — the father three months, the son one year. But a judge ruled their terms were too short under federal law and ordered them back to prison for about four years each.
If these gentlemen were sentenced and SERVED their sentences and then released, HOW IN THE HELL can someone make an arbitrary decision to send them back to prison because some damned Obama sycophant thinks they weren’t penalized enough the 1st time?
Everyone is all up in the air about anticipated Executive Orders from the Head Negro in Charge and having those orders backed up by the Negress in Charge at DOJ.
I personally am not too terribly worried about what the HNIC says or does, I am in Texas and no one here gives a DAMN what the Socialist gun-grabber wants or orders. We’re going to ignore him and his BULLSHIT like we always do.
If you have any doubts about the enforcement of the HNIC’s orders, you may want to read this: Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?
It’s a piece I wrote a while back and is as true today as it was then, and just for good measure, Texas Governor Greg Abbott weighed in on this Obama gun grabbing BULLSHIT too.
Texas Governor to Obama on Executive Gun Control: ‘COME AND TAKE IT’. It is a GREAT time to be a Texan, if your state and it’s leaders won’t stand up to the Obama regime and their grossly illegal violations then it’s time for YOU to make some changes in YOUR state.
We wish you luck.
