72 killed in Massachusetts resisting assault weapons ban.

Post by PhillipM on Mon Jul 08, 2013 8:24 am

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons.

Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.

On July 4th, 1776 these same extremists signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years.

Lest we forget…

Everyone is going to get sick of me saying it but.... lists are old school; files are new school. Lists are unorganized but files are universal and simply get updated hahaha Everyone has a file...sort of like they do in public education systems. I kind of picture my file like what my Facefriends account would be if I had one, with all the things I like and don't like, all the things I've done and not done, all the places I've been and when, my fingerprints, etc in it plus other stuff most decent people would rather keep private.


Very powerful post Philip. Thank you for sharing that. Perspective is a beautiful, beautiful thing.

LLSOL!

Puts the second ammendment fully in perspective. The right to bear arms shall not be infringed. After reading, how can anyone question what the founders line of thinking was. Great read!

I am on THE list, but hey what good is it to be complacent, you might as well have never existed if you don't make some sort of contribution. I just copied the story and e-mailed to my friends that may not be on here. Thanks for the reminder Phillip
P.S. I stay on my wife's LIST also, I am used to it.

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." --Thomas Jefferson  "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time by the blood of patriots and tyrants."  --Thomas Jefferson   "When people fear their government, there is tryranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty." --Thomas Jefferson

I feel like we will stand firm on our belief if this ever takes place , but I pray it never does. I would hate to see our brothers & sisters pitted against us by a dictator. We would be defending our rights & they would be doing their duty.... Terrible thought..
