But he’s a patriot fighting against an overreaching government, right? Wrong, sorry Bundy and company you do not have the right to seize property of any type at gun point.
As we talk about violence of any sort, let’s remember that the Cliven Bundy confrontation could’ve been deadly. Let’s remember how so many are chanting “Blue Lives Matter” nowadays but these assh*les were pointing their guns at police and other authority for a guy who refused to pay grazing fees.
But there’s no outrage about that because someone’s response will be “well they never shot their gun.” STFU – PB/TK
Cliven Bundy follower gets 68 years for role in armed Nevada standoff – Reuters / July 26 2017

Gregory Burleson, 53, of Phoenix, was found guilty in April of eight felony counts, including charges of threatening and assaulting federal officers, obstruction of justice, interstate travel in aid of extortion and firearms offenses related to a crime of violence.
The uprising at Bundy’s ranch near Bunkerville, Nevada, 75 miles (120 km) northeast of Las Vegas, grew out of a dispute in which federal agents seized Bundy’s cattle over his refusal to pay fees required for grazing his livestock on government land.
