Militia groups are setting up armed checkpoints in Clark County Nevada, where Cliven Bundy’s ranch is located, requiring residents to stop and show identification proving they live in the area before they’re allowed to pass.
Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., says some of the militia groups are from out of state. He is demanding a probe by Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie after the militiamen remained despite the fact that the government suspended confiscation of Bundy's cattle two weeks ago.
Horsford said his constituents are scared and the militia is maligning Bunkerville’s peaceful reputation.
He says a growing number of Bunkerville residents have contacted him with concerns about Bundy’s militiamen carrying weapons into local churches and schools as well.
In the video below, Bundy’s representative to the militia praises the rancher.
"One thing I want everybody to know: The character of this man is unmatched," the man says of Bundy. "The things that I've heard him say, the private conversations I've had with him, this man is likened to George Washington in my eyes, and I say that as no small statement."
