LAS VEGAS (AP) — A defense attorney for an Idaho man standing trial in an armed standoff involving Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy told a federal jury that his client came to Nevada to exercise his First Amendment right, using the Second Amendment.

A lawyer for another defendant from Idaho told jurors Wednesday that unlike in big cities where protesters use signs, some people in the rural West protest with guns. And in the end, he added, no one got hurt in the April 2014 standoff.

Both attorneys asked the jury to acquit their clients, Steven Stewart and Eric Parker, of all 10 charges — including conspiracy, weapon and assault on a federal officer. Closings are due to resume Thursday morning. Then, a jury that has heard two months of testimony gets to begin deliberating.
