JPFO Alert: Bundy Ranch Showdown Proves Militias Can Stop Government Excesses

For the doubters out there, an armed militia can face down the greatest military superpower in the world, as today's JPFO Alert notes.

The issue here is that even if Bundy is wrong, enforcement of grazing fee requirements is not legitimately the work of heavily armed paramilitary forces. And the further issue is that for now, at least, when those paramilitary forces stared through their rifle scopes at armed private citizens staring through their rifle scopes, it was the government's eyes that blinked, with no injuries except to the feds' pride.

That injury itself is enough to prompt outrage in some circles. Sen. Reid is not alone in denouncing Bundy and his supporters as "terrorists." On the "progressive" discussion group site Democratic Underground, many participants are evidently angry that the showdown was not resolved with Bundy, his family, and his allies dying in a hail of gunfire.

Fort Hood, 2009: a radical Muslim (shouting "Allahu Akbar") fired 100 shots, killed 13 victims, wounded another 29. The Obama administration called it "workplace violence."

Benghazi: an attack with machine guns, mortars, and rocket launchers left four Americans dead. (The attackers were trying to kidnap an American diplomat and demand as ransom the release of the terrorist who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.) The administration called it a "spontaneous protest."

Bundy ranch, 2014: 0 deaths, 0 shots fired. And Harry Reid calls it "terrorism."
