Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!

Posted on

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.
