Wednesday marked Ammon Bundy’s second day in a federal courtroom in Portland to testify in the trial of seven occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

In this update of “This Land Is Our Land,” OPB reporter Conrad Wilson talks about some of the more notable moments in the day’s testimony: the Constitution as a divinely inspired document, the reason why occupiers brought guns to the refuge and an impassioned speech by an Oregon congressman that gave Bundy hope for his cause.
