Now that the FBI is investigating the Bundy Ranch crowd, there's a whole lotta screaming denial and rationalization going on. "It's not us, it's them! Our guns weren't pointed at anybody - that was the BLM! Snipers? What snipers? Well, the BLM had guns too, neener, neener!"
Okey-dokey, let's just see how that excuse works in court when YouTube has hours of video with pictures of the self-professed Militia members. Not to mention all the talk on Twitter, Facebook, Message Boards, and other social media about what was happening at Bundy Ranch. There's a record all over the internet.

From Talking Points Memo
Las Vegas TV station KLAS reported Thursday that the FBI has begun interviewing Clark County sheriff's officials in what the news station describes as a "formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations" on the part of the Bundy militia.
Sheriff Doug Gillespie confirmed to KLAS that FBI agents asked him whether he saw Bundy supporters point guns at metro police officers during last month's showdown, but declined to share what he told the agents.

FBI agents also spoke to an entire squad of Metro officers, who were on the scene to act as a buffer between the crowd and the BLM. Bundy supporters have insisted in emails and calls to 8 News NOW that no one in the crowd pointed weapons at BLM or Metro, but officers told the I-Team that is exactly what they saw, that many with guns set up behind women and children.
"It is not a rumor. When we first got out there and made a left to divide I-15, that is all you saw. You saw kids and women and horses in the backdrop and then men with guns, laying on the ground, in the back of pickup trucks. We're going, 'wow, this would never happen in Las Vegas,' But it was there. That is not a rumor. It is reality and I saw it with my own eyes," Metro Police Sgt. Tom Jenkins said.
Sgt. Jenkins has been interviewed by the FBI. A second squad is expected to be interviewed by week's end. The bureau does not confirm or deny the existence of any investigation but the I-Team have confirmed from multiple sources that a criminal investigation is underway.
I see. The King’s Men can point machine guns at the peasants all day long, but WOE BETIDE a peasant who points a gun at a King’s Man...

I've wondered if this guy was a plant. From other photos you can see that he has an unscoped AK and is, what? 400+ yds from the feds and would be shooting over friendlies? Unless he's experienced shooting that rifle with open sights at that distance and angle he could dropping rounds right amongst the good guys.
Also from other photos it appeared that he was the only militia up there with a bunch of sightseers.

He’s pointing a paintball gun, that’s weird.

I watched the live feed for the entire 8 hours it unfolded. The Feds were the ones pointing guns. I never saw the protesters aiming guns at the Feds at any time.

FBI are domestic terrorists. Shoot first and worry later! Remember folks this is the same agency that bombed Boston to bring in a beta version of Martial Law!

People had their weapons pointed at the crooks, they were stealing/killing cattle, taking their land, using force against unarmed civilians, intimidation and these crooks were armed and pointing their weapons at these civilians. Once this happened our American Patriots ran to the call. What else would you expect free Americans to do, guess what feds..we fear for our life everyday because of the federal government, now we have the right to destroy you? Thank you, happy hunting

They are not pointing at them... Just looking through their scopes to identify the agents.

It was self defense. The people of Clark County need to replace that candy-assed sheriff.

It was reported at the time that the feds physically assaulted Bundy's peaceful supporters; abused and frightened Bundy's cattle and caused the terrified cattle to die.
A lot of people were genuinely frightened that the feds were going to shoot to death Bundy's supporters. Thank God they weren't. It was a very scary time.

This is ridiculous. The fbi are just trying to get someone to fire the first shot. The government is looking away to declare martial law. They just want a reason to lock down the country and take away our guns.
~ Allen R. on World Net Daily
Guns were pointed at the citizens. They should be investigated! This is not going to end well for Reid and the FBI! God Bless the Bundy's!

Alex Jones said in a video a few days ago the following. "If you are questioned by the FBI, you're ending up dead more and more in their custody". I'm going to believe him on this one. The FBI are trying to silence the people, there is no crime against pointing a gun at someone, there is a crime against firing a gun against someone (situation based). The argument the BLM is using is the exact same argument that Bundy's supporters can, and will, use against them. You had 200 heavily armed BLM threatening murder to people who protested out of "free speech zones", sicced attack dogs on them, tazed people, and you wanna claim the victim, BLM? FBI, don't do this. It will not end well for anyone.

THe photos I saw, yes the protesters were on an overpass with weapons pointed at the Govt. goons,who were pointing their guns at hundreds of Bundy supporters. I think the supporters had no choice as the Govt. goons had been there for days,tazing people, herding them into areas like cattle etc. I beleive the Govt. is not done with the Bundy's. THey are waiting for things to die down,then will sweep in and do what who knows. THey will not just drop this. They fail to realize the American people are not going to let it drop and won't put up with this COMMIE control'
