Previously: Militia Occupies Federal Building in Oregon After Rancher Arson Convictions

Russia Today reports:

Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed group occupying a federal wildlife refuge near Burns, Oregon, and four others have been arrested by law enforcement amid gunfire, according to the FBI.

At 4:25 pm on [January 26], the FBI and Oregon State Police "began an enforcement action to bring into custody a number of individuals associated with the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. During that arrest, there were shots fired", the Bureau said in a statement.

The FBI said one person who was "a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased". He said they are not releasing any information on the person "pending identification by the medical examiner's office".

One person suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was arrested and is in custody.

The arrested individuals include:
- Ammon Edward Bundy, age 40, of Emmett, Idaho.
- Ryan C. Bundy, age 43, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Brian Cavalier, age 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Shawna Cox, age 59, of Kanab, Utah.
- Ryan Waylen Payne, age 32, of Anaconda, Montana.

    Well, there are many shades of ideology, and it's possible to move through them throughout your life as experience leads you to different conclusions. Consider, also, that the definition of those labels morphs a heck of a lot over the time scale of a human life. "liberal" after WWII described Milton Friedman and his fellows who wore the label as a counter-point to FDR's social welfare policies. Today most people would call Milton Friedman to the right of Jamie Dimon.

    But ikanreed is right. There are lots of shades of crazy on the left, too. I used to be a member of the Green Party and there was this radical vegan lady in the local chapter who tried to strongarm every meeting into centrally revolving around protests against meat. Anytime everyone else, and it was really everyone else, tried to talk about something not related to diet, she would scream "fascist" and throw tantrums. Then there was the nebbishy guy who did the same thing, but about pesticide spraying against the West Nile virus mosquito.

    Even then, though, I believed firmly in the right to bear arms and had a very strong antipathy for big government, having grown up in the Rockies the way I had, which I'm sure would have caused them to lynch me.

    Washington DC delenda est.
