After his son’s arrest, Cliven Bundy posted a statement on his website which read, “They have my cattle and now they have one of my boys. Range War begins tomorrow.”
Supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy violated a “First Amendment Area” by staging a rally in support of Bundy, who earlier declared a “range war” against federal authorities in response to a land dispute that threatens to escalate into a Waco-style standoff.
Bundy is currently embroiled in a spat with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over his long standing refusal to acknowledge a 1993 modification to grazing rights on land that Bundy asserts has been in his family since 1870. On Saturday, hundreds of federal officials, aided by helicopters, low flying aircraft and hired cowboys, began rounding up Bundy’s cattle in northeastern Clark County.
The feds say the move is about enforcing the law and protecting the endangered desert tortoise, but the Bundy family says the spat represents a showdown between big government and American farmers.
“We’ve had enough, we’re going to take our land back, we’re done,” said Bundy’s wife, Carol Bundy, adding that the rally was held “to show that we are not standing alone. People are getting tired of the federal government having unlimited power.”
randy weaver was murdered by govt they will murder this cat as well
He's not a cat. His name is Cliven Bundy.
Randy Weaver wasn't killed. It was his wife and son who were killed by the Gestapo.
One of these days something like this is going to start an insurrection.
It is possible that the feds actually hope it happens so they can declare martial law, at least in certain areas.
We'll just have to wait and see.
Nevada just might be a good place to get it started. It is going to start some place, some day.
Gentlemen: "Fix bayonets". All AR's M1A's have bayonet lugs, time to use them. Don't tell me there aren't any semi auto military style weapons out there! This country is full of them, that's why this regime is scared of an armed populace. Lets not forget our veterans out there. Still a lot of fight left in us. We WILL defend this nation and it Constitution against ALL enemies foreign and DOMESTIC.
Hey, Robert S. W.,
I know for a fact that a Romanian AK-47 also has a bayonet stud that takes a 'knife'--lol. Personally, I prefer a 7.62 by 39 mm projectile over an AR-15, .223, and think there is just a little bit more "oomph" in the ammo, IMHO. What say you?
BTW, I graduated from WATERFORD H.S., in Wisconsin ! I now live in the U.P.

I saw an episode of Myth Busters a while back and they compared the AK round to the AR-15 round. They put 1" thick glass panels together with clamps and fired from the same spot. The AR penetrated 2 and cracked the 3rd. pane. The AK penetrated 10 and cracked the 11th.
I watched the same episode, they used an AR-15 with .223 ammo. The M-16 uses 5.56 ammo and you can get the AR-15 that uses 5.56. With the 5.56 you can use both rounds. I have yet to see any comparison between the 7.62 NATO round and the 5.56 JHP. But the AK-47 is a lighter weapon and one that is easier to keep clean.
Oh, and Thomas, I graduated from Horlick High in Racine.

Brent, if you had been in the Army you would know that the .223 and 5.56 are the same round.
You can not fire a 5.56MM in a rifle made to shoot a 223 should as a Ruger 223. If you have a MIL SPEC 5.56 Rifle you can shoot either round. There is rifles out there that will shoot only 223 but want shoot the 5.56MM, this is unsafe.
Bob R., Thanks!! I needed that. [smile]. I served with the U.S. Army, in Vietnam: 68-70, the 2nd tour with the 240th AHC, [door gunner] at Camp BearCat, RVN, and the 1st tour with USARV --CuChi, PhuLoi, and Bien Hoa. I have heard a lot of other soldiers claim that, ' if we had the enemies' AK-47's, we would not have lost so many people from jams -- and with our M-60's too!' I believe it, even if the AK didn't have the total accuracy that the M-16 had... but that is water over the dam, now, and too many good people on the "Wall, in D.C."
