    BOSTON, April 19

    - 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 estimated that 72
    were killed and more than 20 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
    April 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 their weapons over 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 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 has 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.

    Isn't that what the militia's for? Seems to me the government's overstepping its bounds. I'm just glad to know there are those who will stand up for what's right (assuming this is true).

    Ahem... This is in reference to the battle of Lexington and Concord on this day in 1775.

    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Between the DC SAM, Rally in Va and the anniversary of Lexington & Concord on Monday, I thought the media would be all over it. I seen, heard, read, very little about yesterday and I thought it was kind of odd. Yes, as mentioned, MSM is Main Stream Media.

    It would seem I missed that last paragraph... and slept through most of my history courses. And I have no interest in going over the material I missed, either. I'd rather look like a fool every now and then.

    Take the story or news release in the OP and make a few minor changes. Substitute U S Military (Army) for National Guard as I normally think of the National Guard as being the local militia and not the army from a foreign land such as the British army.

    Substitute Puerto Rico for Boston as this would be a similar situation where one is a colony of the other. So now we come up wit the citizens of Puerto Rico fighting for their freedom from the US as the citizens of Puerto Rico do not have a say in the Fedral Government that rules them. How would you feel after reading this story?

    Puerto Rico has made it very clear that they do not want to be a state.
