"Concerns are growing about members of the militia surrounding rancher Cliven Bundy.
Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford, sent a letter to Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the safety of residents in the Bunkerville area. Horsford says his constituents have "expressed concern" over the presence of armed militia groups from out of state.
According to Horsford, his constituents say the militia have set up checkpoints where residents must prove they live in the area before they are allowed to pass and have set up a "persistent presence" along federal highways, and state and county roads. They also claim some have established an armed presence in the community.
Horsford told the sheriff that the militia are making people feel unsafe.'
These are violent, deranged individuals who are being egged on by many national Republican leaders and their spokesmen, and we all know that they are just praying for a chance to start shooting. I must say, I don't know what the government can do at this point, but I will say that we are in the process of moving one step closer to an incredibly ugly situation in this country, in which a lot of people are going to be hurt.
