Americans are tired of the federal government sticking their nose where it doesn’t belong. Militias will not put up with much more.
With the federal government owning so much land in the heartland of the county it is no wonder there are problems. There is no reason for the feds to own this and it should be turned over to the states.

Organizers, who include Ammon Bundy and two other sons of a Nevada rancher who battled the government in 2014, are calling on reinforcements from around the country and say they will defend themselves.
