    Did we not warn everyone that Cliven Bundy supporters are terrorists? Point proven. These two nuts were actually even too extreme for the other terrorists and were asked to leave the ranch! Why is right wing extremism so often mixed with swastikas and the words "patriot" and "freedom"?

    If they were asked to leave the Bundy Ranch, I don't believe that would make them part of their group. It is good to hear that even they have standards. When I watched one of the videos of the confrontation at the end of the road, one of the things that I noticed was members telling others to comply with the instructions and not to resist.

    I don't even think they want nut jobs like this around.

    He aimed a gun at law enforcement. The stupid ****er should be lucky he's not dead.

    It may not be possible to prove where he was aiming there, but if he was aiming at another person, he should have been arrested for it, regardless of whether the target was a federal agent.

    You're one of the "gun experts" here right ?

    What's that photo look like to you ? Think he was aiming at a cow ?

    Or one of his fellow militiamen ?

    He's even wearing what looks like a bullet-proof vest.

    He should be in jail as we speak.

    Cardinal rules of handling a gun:
    1. Assume that every gun you touch is loaded
    2. Do not point a gun toward anything other than what you intend to shoot
    3. Shoot only at what you intend to destroy
    Generally speaking, if you point a gun at me, I would be entirely within my rights to have you put in jail for assault.

    If Jerad Miller was asked to leave the Bundy ranch, it must have been after a while as he did quite a few TV and print interviews from there.

    Of course I'm not a gun expert, nor have I claimed to be one. I've never even owned a firearm, and I don't know where you got such a misguided impression of me. I said it might be difficult to prove exactly where he's aiming apart from general direction, but I agree he should be in jail. He shouldn't be pointing that gun at anything if his life isn't in danger.

    Business Insider provides a link they say is Jerad Miller in his own words on Google+;

    Sorry I confused you with someone else.

    It gets rather exhausting at times.

    I think the fact that the Bundy group wouldn't allow convicted felons to camp with them is actually a positive thing.

    I agree, but in all fairness, Jerad did have a point. Pulling a weapon down on a federal agent is a criminal offense, so they would be felons if tried and convicted.

    There is no doubt that Eric Holder has seen these photos. Do you really think that with resources of our federal government we haven't identified who that guy with the rifle is? Why hasn't he arrested him? There has to be more to the story.

    It was posted above that the guy is under investigation. You're thinking because nothing has been done yet that there is something ulterior going on that we don't know about.

    Let the investigation continue and if a warrant is issued, a warrant will be issued. But you can not doubt that having a weapon, especially of that type drawn down on an agent is an offense and action should be taken.

    The article is even from a guns rights website :

    "I suspect it was a small portion of the assembled total, but some of them quite famously did, including Eric Parker, who dropped prone and assumed a firing stance at the federal agents lined up ahead of him."

    snipers get reference points & aim at them to see what the sight picture looks like at certain distances.

    Even Jerad seems to have realized that pointing a weapon at a federal agent who's out there doing his job is sorta stupid.

    It does seem that;

    is illegal in Nevada

    edit;

    well you'll be happy to know that the FBI is now investigating according to Las Vegas KLAS-tv;

    The Bundy militia deny it all of course (never mind those photos you've seen :p )
