I am pretty sure that I am not the government making a official judgement. I am confidant that I am a citizen noting the photographic evidence and the specific state law that the idiot was clearly in violation of.
I never claimed that the idiot was arrested. I never claimed any court decision. It is weird that you are going off on this irrelevant tangent for what? Your line of thought makes no sense.
AT any rate a guy aiming a firearm at a group of people sure does make these militia Bundy supporters look like Domestic terrorists. Also the entire point of that was to intimidate the BLM by showing force with armed militia hanging around pointing weapons in the BLM's direction.
"There is no deal here. The citizens of America and Clark County went and took their cattle. There was no negotiations. They took these cattle," Bundy said.
I also stated that I did not think he was completely lawful as he had weapon drawn with no immediate threat.
Then I heard the words, “I’ve got a clear shot at four of them,” and to my right found one of the men pointing his weapon in the direction of the BLM. For me, time had stopped.
“I’m ready to pull the trigger if fired upon,” said another man on the bridge. That was what other Bundy supporters said too – they wouldn’t shoot first, but they would return fire.

Also the photographer relates that it was the thugs that initiated the confrontation.
Another note. I tried looking for the number of federal agents on scene - print and image. I've seen the number 200 thrown about in various posts, but in my search that number always seemed to be traced back to Bundy's wife's allegation. She was also the lone source of the government sniper allegation. Another article said this...I decided to leave the protesters’ rallying point and drive several miles to where BLM and National Park Service (NPS) officers were holding Bundy’s impounded cattle but when I got there, there didn’t seem to be anything new to report.
I was making my way back to the protest site when Jennifer called me. She said the demonstrators were coming in my direction to go to the BLM facility and demand that Bundy’s cattle be released. My heart skipped a beat and anxiety set in, as I realised the armed group was heading this way looking for a showdown.
I never found a number of federal agents estimate in print (other than Bundy's wife), but I did see an image with 19 armed agents from a thug friendly page.He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy's Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.
