From MSN:

Some of Bell’s neighbors didn’t share that view. Disturbed by the noise and risk of errant gunfire, nearly 40 of them supported a petition demanding that the range be shut down, the Southern Maryland News reported. Tomlinson, in particular, said he feared for his safety, since his farm sits downrange from a backstop for bullets on Bell’s property that he called “totally ineffective.”

Koreatown Survived L.A. Riots

From The Truth About Guns:

The LAPD pulled out and basically told folks in the worst-hit areas that they were on their own. But a small section of Los Angeles known as Koreatown, located just north of South Central, didn’t burn. Why?

Showdown In Nevada Between Rancher and the Feds

Armed federal agents from the FBI and Bureau of Land Management have surrounded a ranch in Nevada in order to protect an endangered tortoise.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

His wife, Carol Bundy, said that roughly 200 armed agents from the BLM and FBI are stationed around their land, located about 75 miles outside of Las Vegas. Helicopters circle the premises, and the airspace and nearby roads remain blocked.

As of Monday, officials have seized 234 of Bundy’s 908 cattle. Impounding the cattle alone could cost the government as much as $3 million.

When the priority of the government goes this far astray is when people get hurt. Let’s hope the situation is resolved in a just manner.
