It looks like all the right-wing extremist fun is over in Bundyland. Late yesterday, federal and state authorities arrested the leaders of the anti-government militia group occupying a remote wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon and sealed off the area. Eight people were taken into custody on conspiracy charges including Cliven Bundy’s sons Ammon and Ryan. One person was killed in a shootout with law enforcement (LaVoy Finicum) and another was injured (Ryan Bundy).

Why can’t the Gov’t just let decent, gun totin’, anti-government militia groups be? Poor guys are so misunderstood and always the victims of unwarranted harassment.
