A new report is calling on Congress to more vocally address rising extremism on public lands in the West. 

Anti-government protestors have organized four armed confrontations on public lands since Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy's well-publicized standoff with federal land managers in 2014.

After a week, there have been no arrests in the armed seizure of a national wildlife refuge in southeastern Oregon being led by two sons of Cliven Bundy.

Bundy is the Bunkerville rancher who refused to pay $1 million in grazing fees last year and called on militia groups to confront land managers.

The occupation of Malheaur National Wildlife Refuge now has several critics across Nevada speaking out, including former U.S. Representative Steven Horsford who says the Bundys are domestic terrorists.
