Citizens for Constitutional Freedom? Or The Bundy Bunch?

On January 2nd, 2016, Ammon Bundy lead an armed group to occupy Oregon’s Malheur Federal Wildlife Refuge. The group of less than 25 call themselves the “Citizens for Constitutional Freedom.” Their primary claim extends a decades old controversy, that the Federal Government has no Constitutional authority to create and manage wildlife refuges on Federal land—absent State authorization. Furthermore, they believe that local economies are hurt when environmental protection takes precedence over industries such as cattle, logging, and mining.
