(Las Vegas, NV) — Congressman Steven Horsford wants an investigation into armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy. In a letter to Sheriff Doug Gillespie, Horsford alleges checkpoints have been set up near Bundy’s ranch outside Las Vegas, where residents have to prove they, quote, “live in the area” before they can enter. The congressman also claims militia members have a, quote, “persistent presence” on highways and near schools and churches, making residents “feel unsafe.”
