    Hundreds of supporters — many of them armed — showed up to protest the federal government’s decision to round up cattle from land in Nevada a rancher says he owns, prompting the feds to surrender the animals, for now . "Give us back our property", said Ammon Bundy, whose father, Cliven Bundy claims his family has the right to allow more than 400 head of cattle to graze on acres of ranch he says are his. The Bureau of Land Management began corralling the livestock outside Mesquite, Nevada, last week, but agents were met by resistance by hundreds of protesters, fighting for what they consider states’ rights. One protester was shot at at by law enforcement officials with stun gun.
