Default Paramilitary Extremists Riot

BOSTON, April 20 - 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 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.

It could come to pass, brother. Pray it doesn't
Edit: I guess this didn't come off as I thought it would. I got a pm.

Yes I get that this based on the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
It is also written in a style that it could be applied to modern day, i.e. next April.
It's focus on a gun grab is very current in that there is a group of modern large city mayors who have made it a focus to limit the public's right to bear arms.
Clear enough?

I got a quarter way through it and thought "Oh, Crap".
Halfway through, it started to sound familiar.
That was a good take on a classic.

Would be the hell of a morning breaking news pal.

Considering the actual government is fully local and popularly elected, the deed might not be as popular as "back in the days"

However in a movie, the plot is perfectly entertaining. Matt Damon can play Paul Revere, Samuel Adams is Brad Pitt and John Hancock is Leonardo Dicaprio. Hell of a movie it would be.

I disagree that this could happen today. First they did not have the protection of the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment and hate the police as much as you want but they would not be able to get together a useable force to violate the Constitution by trying to seize weapons. I know, I know those of you that see a conspiracy in every action of the police will say it has happened. Well, almost all of those incidents that have been brought up in this forum have been taken for some reason other than just to seize weapons. A possible threat, mental evaluation, or a plethora of other reasons. Do individual organizations want to ban all guns … you bet you’re a** they do BUT I still don’t see the country as a whole trying to confiscate our weapons. Can I see them try to regulate the guns… yes but not seize. But this is just my opinion and it and a buck fifty will get you a cup of coffee.

Regular police would not be used. Probably not the National Guard either. ATF very likely. UN troops a high possibility as the ban and confiscation would be the result of a UN treaty. We are being led into a One World Government and no one will be allowed to keep weapons.
Hitler called in all weapons. They were collected, registered, serviced and returned in good working order. He then made a second call and almost everybody turned in their weapons. They did not get them back.

I'm sure the good people in California, Louisiana, DC, among others, will be glad to hear that their guns weren't actually confiscated, but...ummmm....borrowed? Glad that was cleared up finally
