Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation
 
BREAKING NEWS!! Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation - World Politicus

Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston

Quote:

National guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19th 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 Lexington ‘s 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 overmatched 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, people, is how the American Revolution began.

We are seeing an unprecedented growth in citizen militias in this country today. Weapon sales are at an all time high. We fought a War of Independence because of the lack of Representation. The same lack of Representation and abuse of power we are seeing in Washington today.

Keep being an apologist for right wing assault weapon loonies.

I hope your kids and grandkids don't get caught in the crossfire when the "revolution" starts. Wouldn't it be a shame to see them splattered all over the sidewalk?

I've seen you're nut job citizen militias, one decent shooter with a bolt action rifle could take them all out.

Satire should never be wasted on people of a dimwitted disposition, especially if it involves actual history.

The satire piece is based on the Battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775.

Using Snopes regarding American history, really?

The satire piece is spot-on regarding thousands of years of world history and human nature's response to oppression and displacing sovereignty with statism. It has always happened and it will always happen.

Oh really, you're interested in actual history?
Then you should know that is was NOT "National Guard" troops sent to "confiscate a recently banned cache of assault weapons from para-military extremist, blah-blah-blah-blah."
It was British Regular troops out of Boston.

Yeah, the article was kinda' cute, but basically just RW bravado mixed with bullshit.
