Failed Gun Confiscation/Armed Conflict in Boston!!!!

BOSTON - 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.

This story originally broke April 20, 1775.

Do you get a feeling the government is going for a remake?

I do and hope it does not come to that, but people will stand up and die for their rights.

That's where I was gonna go.

Back then it was militia with muskets vs military with muskets.

Now it would be militia with semi automatic rifles vs military with full auto rifles, rpgs, tanks, helicopters, jets, missiles, etc...

Massachusets: Millions cower in fear as one armed terrorist is on the loose.

Michigan: Terrorist cowers in fear as millions of armed citizens go about their daily lives.

I would think at some point the military would stop taking orders from the administration and back off as they started to see people jumping on the bandwagon.

Yeah, but that is assuming all personnel entrusted with that stuff doesn't jump ship and take their toys with them. Libya for example.

Come on, you seriously did not recognize the story of 'the shot heard 'round the world'?

Were you even awake in history class?

Don't matter how sophisticated the government forces would be. They are still run by the government. Seems no matter how awesome our shit is several fighters in an overloaded Toyota pickup keep us at bay because of government rules.

Libya did it with a rebel force that started out less armed than your average American household.

I'd like to believe that's what would happen, but given the state of society I really have no faith that it would go down like that.

Do you honestly think that the government would abide by the same rules that they follow in other countries?Here they can control the media and hide whatever they feel discriminating against them.
