   LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A week after a tense standoff between gun-toting states' rights advocates and federal Bureau of Land Management police, self-described militia members are still protecting Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his family.
 
   Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada calls the armed campers "domestic terrorists." He says a federal task force was being formed to deal with the unrest.
 
   Nevada Republican Sen. Dean Heller says those who Reid may call domestic terrorists, he calls patriots.
 
   The Bundy ranch is the latest skirmish in a dispute about whether states or the federal government should control public range lands in the West.
 
   Left unresolved is the government's claim that Bundy owes more than $1.1 million for letting some 900 cows trespass for 20 years on rangeland 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
