Ammon and Ryan Bundy want their Constitutional Rights –including the Second Amendment– to be recognized in jail and are considering suing the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office to get them, according to a report from Oregon Public Broadcasting.
In documents filed Tuesday, the Bundys argued their constitutional rights are being infringed upon because they are not free to assemble nor are they free to practice their Mormon religion.
The Bundy brothers alleged that they have little access to their legal teams, “insufficient accommodations for religious practice,” and are “being denied access to materials and resources reasonably required to defend their respective cases.”
“Despite being presumed innocent, these defendants are treated as harshly and the same as convicted felons with whom they are commingled and housed,” they alleged.
