    attempt to disarm citizens turns deadly

    Government forces attempting to disarm radical militias were attacked this morning in two tiny Massachusetts communities outside of Boston. The extremist radicals that had formed militias in protest of supposed infringements of individual rights by the government. In an effort to make the community safer, government forces moved into the towns early this morning to confiscate weapons held by these anti-government extremist, but several paranoid militia members alerted others of their ilk that the weapons confiscation would soon be underway.

    In a blatant disregard for lawful authority and in wanton disregard for public safety, an unknown person fired a shot setting of a frenzy of shooting by participants on both sides of the confrontation. The government forces then withdrew and proceeded back to compound in Boston only to be harassed and fired upon by radical militia members all along the way and suffered heavy losses.

    Hey, CombatEffective, it must have been a slow news day. Isn't this story 231 years old?

    The truth usually is. The story does sound like it belongs in today's newspaper. The Boston name is what really gave it away. The way MA is now the militia would have to be using crossbows.

    Another version of this story was posted on the net...

    some years ago. Here it is. I did not write it, just copied it from a newsgroup.

    *****************************
    BOSTON - April 20

    National guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently
    banned 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 weapons. Gage issued a ban on private ownership
    of 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 the
    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 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.

    First reported on April 20, 1775
