Militia opens fire on government forces

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

– Police and National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of
recently banned assault weapons were ambushed Sunday by elements of a
para-military right wing 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 militia faction has citizens whohave links to the
radical right wing tax protest movement.
Gage blamed the militia for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.
The governor who described the group’s organizers as “terrorists” ,
issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any
individual who has interfered with the governments efforts to secure law
and order.
The law enforcement team augmented by elements of
the National Guard, were sent to raid a militia arsenal after widespread
refusal of right wing extremists to turn over recently outlawed assault
This decision followed a meeting in early July between
government and law enforcement which authorized the confiscation of the
illegal arms, known as the weapons of choice among criminals and
One government official, speaking on condition of
anonymity, pointed out “that none of these people would have been killed
had right wing extremist obeyed the law and turned over the weapons
voluntarily” .
Police and government forces 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 militia extremist who had been
tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense
stand-off 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 extremist.
Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizens blamed the government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths.
Before order could be restored, heavily armed militia groups from
surrounding areas had descended upon the police and guard units.
Colonel Smith finding his forces over matched by militia mobs, 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.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified
as “ringleaders” of the extremist militia faction remain at large.

      Do you people think this bs is real. Well it was back in 1775! Just google Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage and it will show you. I really don’t like it when people do this, it just adds to the bs thats already out there and can make some people really think that this happened in our day. So just use your head people and do some research of your own before you consider this real.
