According to multiple sources, protesters near the site of the Bureau of Land Management cattle roundup and stand-off are planning a peaceful rally this morning. See, for example, Bob Owens post on the BearingArms blog and Western Rifle Shooters Association. The Bundy family has indicated that today or tomorrow, if enough protesters are present, they may attempt to interfere with cattle gathering operations being conducted by BLM contractors. If there’s a chance for violence, it’s very likely that it will occur during those attempts.
Many in the internet patriot community have found themselves behind this protest, possibly due to the widespread hatred among western states ranchers for the BLM and the perception that this could be a good event to push back against decades of heavy-handed land-grabbing by the agency. Others are arguing against it. See, for example, this sometimes heated argument on the iOwnTheWorld blog debating Ann Barnhardt’s “hands off” advice.
UPDATE: Just in the last few minutes, Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the BLM has agreed to end the cattle gathering operations, ending the stand-off.
