Range ShowdownCongressman Steven Horsford (D-NV), has sent a letter to Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie asking him to investigate reports of armed militia members setting up checkpoints to verify the residency of anybody passing through.

Residents of Bunkerville and the surrounding area have expressed concern over the continual presence of multiple out-of-state, armed militia groups that have remained in the community since the BLM halted its actions to impound the cattle of Cliven Bundy earlier this month.
