(Burns, OR)  --  Authorities in Oregon say they're working towards a peaceful resolution after armed militia members took over a building at a federal wildlife refuge.  The group seized the building near the town of Burns yesterday following a protest over two Oregon ranchers who are set to go to prison on arson convictions.  However, the Harney County Sheriff says the group has different motives.  In a statement, the Sheriff says they have alternative motives of overthrowing the county and federal governments in hopes of sparking a nationwide movement.  
 
The group is apparently led by Ammon Bundy, the son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who's clashed with the federal government over grazing rights.  Bundy says the group doesn't plan to use violence unless the government moves against them.
