REDMOND, OR -- When the agenda at Monday night’s Redmond Patriots meeting got to the armed militia takeover of the federal wildlife refuge near Burns, opinions were vocal and unanimous. Bob Berry, who heads up the Redmond Patriots group and also serves as the Deschutes County Republican party chair, compared the Burns situation with other recent politically motivated occupations. "If I’m going to be opposing what I saw with Occupy wall Street and Occupy Portland, then how can I be in favor of this, that’s going on in Harney County? Because it’s definitely not legal and I also think it’s probably not an effective way to change policy."

 

But, Perry tells KBND News many at the meeting agreed with the sentiment that lead to the standoff. "I’d like to see less government takeover of our lands and less government influence to begin with."
