The FBI speaks. Click for their statement indicating they do not want any violence.  That’s sure to reassure the gunmen who now control the Malheur Headquarters.  Guns speak louder than words.

Click here to see the Bend newspaper’s aerial of what’s being held by the gunmen and where they built the illegal road using federal equipment.

Click on this this link for a bit of the religious fanaticism fueling some of the Bundy Gang.  Here’s a thought-provoking paragraph from one recent report: “God wants us here, there’s a sense that’s beckoning and it comes from heaven,” militiaman Kelly Gneiting said. “We’re doing what’s right, we’re doing what the founding fathers would do because we’re inspired by God, also.” 

Not sure where in the New Testament it tells Christian Soldiers to arm themselves and overthrow the government, or take back what was never theirs.  But the big guns are very American.  It was big guns that drove the Paiute off this very land over 140 years ago.

Furthermore, the Malheur situation is Open Carry in its fullest glory.  Ain’t it a grand idea?  Carry whatever weapon is most likely to menace and terrify the peaceful and unarmed.  Just what the NRA likes to see, their creed dominating the “debate.”   But as one person wisely observed open carry trumps free speech every time.  What debate?  I think these gunmen and their ilk should next move on to the legislature in each open carry state, see how those guys (and its predominantly white males pushing this American gun agenda) like having their precious lives disrupted by violent threats, spoken and implied.
