    72 killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston


    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…

    They always say that history repeats itself. An out of control tyrannical government always over reaches; and the results are often devastating to all involved. Men like Captain Parker, Francis Marion, and Daniel Morgan knew how to deal with a professional army of a tyrant.

    Well written. I'd like to see that in the NYTimes and the Boston Globe as well as on the desk in the Oval Office.

    I say we need to remove all warning labels. If at some point you don't realize it was a bad idea to put that plastic bag over your head... And if the coffee I ordered isn't hot I'm gonna raise hell.

    Too late...we have intereferred with the evolutionary process and those who are to stupid to live have been allowed to breed into unmanageable numbers.

    Disclaimer: Even though I dont suscribe to evolution as a theory. We do have the ability to adapt and be smart enough to NOT put a plastic bag over our head. I suspect those who are not, do pass on their traits to others.

    I saw this last week and did some research and it appears that the article was a spoof based on the original incident that started the original Revolution. I checked
    on TruthorFiction.com and could not find anything on the supposed "current" article. I scoured the internet looking for confirmation other than what I originally found, which consisted mostly of the story on InfoWars and a few others who followed suit, and could not verify it anywhere else. Then I reluctantly checked Snopes, which I generally do not trust, and that's where I found the explanation. See here:

    Since I could not find anything else truly confirming that such an act did happen in current time, I reluctantly accept Snopes explanation. I do not think that a story of the magnitude could be covered up and hopefully I'm not wrong.
    Kill them all and let God sort them out!
