Whenever I see the name Bundy, I have to stop for just a moment and think "Ted, Cliven, or Al?".

Its worth a watch, but it has nothing to do with gun control. No where in it or the even in the Bundy's on protests was gun control an issue. The issues where their criminal acts and government over reach in the area of land use.

By their own words, they formed a militia. That pertains to the 2nd amendment.

Bull, your adding your own bias, its all about land use, and criminal activity. No where in the "protests" by the Bundy's and the militia groups that joined the "protest' was there ever anything about gun control, or the 2nd amendment. You statement is an out and out misrepresentation of the events that took place, and take away from the real topics at hand.

I didn't SAY it had anything to do with 'gun control'; but it sure does have something to do with the 2nd Amendment.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." ~ 2nd Amendment

(Hint: guns are not the only thing the 2nd Amendment is about.)

A lot of people were not in favor of them. But right or wrong, they raised the issue of federal govt. overrreach, and that is usually ALWAYS a good thing to bring attention to.

actually from my experience with blm, they rent to crones or payola under the table. has nothing to do with the concept of government protected land or allocating use as much as local cronyism.
