Four days into the BLM theft of Cliven Bundy’s cattle on public land near Gold Butte, Gov. Brian Sandoval has released a statement bemoaning the behavior of the BLM agents.
He said he had received numerous complaints about road closures and other disturbances and said he has talked to BLM officials.
“Most disturbing to me is the BLM’s establishment of a ‘First Amendment Area’ that tramples upon Nevadans’ fundamental rights under the U.S. Constitution,” Sandoval said. “To that end, I have advised the BLM that such conduct is offensive to me and countless others and that the ‘First Amendment Area’ should be dismantled immediately.”
To which I would add that citizens should not take it upon themselves to dismantle the ‘First Amendment Areas’ until a few public officials take offense at the fact the feds have stationed snipers atop several hills overlooking public roadways.
“No cow justifies the atmosphere of intimidation which currently exists nor the limitation of constitutional rights that are sacred to all Nevadans,” the governor said, not ever mentioning the snipers.
