Just FYI!

Seventy-two killed resisting gun confiscation in Boston!

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned 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 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.

On July 4th, 1776 these same extremists signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years.

Lest we forget…

Let us not forget!”

People who claim “it won’t happen again” need to read this:

The registration/confiscation of assault weapons in New York City is legit.  It is the “New York Safe Act”.  They say they are wanting all “assault weapons” registered so they will know if anyone has one that shouldn’t: felons, the mentally unstable, etc.  Last time I checked, the bad guys don’t follow the rules, so they are not likely to oblige here, guys, and the mentally unstable probably don’t understand to.

As anyone in possession of all the facts knows, it is not the weapons that are a problem, even in relation to the mass shootings. The real problem is that the common citizenry is underarmed.  In instances of a”mass shooting” stopped by police, the average number of deaths is 14.3.  When the citizenry was armed and stopped it, there is an average of 2.3 deaths.  But the media doesn’t want you to know that!

Instead of following England’s policy of total disarmament of the people, which has been disastrous, we should be following after the Israeli model as explained in this article by Don B. Kates.  He is talking about the Virginia Tech Massacre and why it happened:

That policy is the “gun-free zone.” Even if the victims had possessed permits to carry a gun, Virginia Tech forbade them to have that means of self-defense while on campus. This ensured that only the killer (who, of course, violated the “gun-free zone” policy just as he violated the laws against murder) and uniformed police would have guns. Obviously the university could not afford to station officers in every lecture hall.

Yet nothing less would substitute for the victims themselves having had the power to stop the massacre.

Israel has a better alternative. Decades ago, Palestinian terrorism was being directed at schools. Yasser Arafat calculated that small children can’t shoot back, and that killing them was the best way to terrify parents into fleeing Israel.

Israel’s response?

They armed schoolteachers and school bus drivers. Now, even suicide terrorists don’t attack schools — lest they be shot down before they can reach their helpless victims.

Thousands of civilians are armed all across Israel, as the following incidents illustrate:

* Shavei Shomron — A Palestinian shot into a kindergarten, but did not dare to enter. Next he attacked neighboring buildings, where he was killed by a civilian gun owner.

* Bethlehem — A terrorist threw one bomb into a supermarket, but was prevented from throwing another when a shopper shot him in the head with a gun from her purse.

* Tel Aviv — William Hazan, his wife, and some friends were eating in a restaurant when a terrorist began machine-gunning the establishment. Ducking under a table, Hazan killed him with a pistol he had carried for years.

Such incidents are numerous not only in Israel but in the U.S. as well. Last December, a woman parishioner shot and killed a gunman who had just slaughtered four unarmed people in a crowded Colorado church complex.

Three separate school massacres have been ended when good citizens violated the schools’ “gun-free zone” policies by rushing to their cars for guns with which they were then able to arrest the perpetrators.

But for those policies, they might have been carrying their guns, and the massacres could have been ended earlier — and with fewer deaths.

Since 1980, the majority of states have adopted laws under which five million law-abiding responsible adults have gun-carry permits.

Contrary to dire predictions, permit-holders have not abused the privilege — and murders and other violent crimes have been sharply reduced.

Everyone opposes violent crime (except the perpetrators). “Gun-free zone” policies which disarm everyone (except the perpetrators) facilitate murder rather than precluding it.

Universities and businesses who facilitate murder by imposing such empty symbolism should be held strictly liable for the killings those policies facilitate.

If that is not enough to convince you that gun control is a huge mistake, here are a few more facts:

Like it or not, we have the right to bear arms and defend our selves, our families, and our property.  It has been proven, time and again, that disarming the people is counter productive, dangerous, and the wrong step to take to protect the people.  It is, however, a step toward tyranny.

Let me leave you with this:

  • “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” – George Washington[1]
  • “…’by some of us not owning a gun, or at least embracing the idea of one, are we setting ourselves up to be victims in a movie theater, a school, a public building, most of all in our streets, in our own neighborhoods, and in our own homes?,” he asked.

   “And armed with just our cellphones, our fists and our wits, are we setting ourselves up to be sitting ducks, defenseless in the    face of a sane, or an insane person, armed to the teeth and bent on killing,’ Lemon added.”[2]

  • “First they suppressed religion, then they confiscated our guns, then they just walked in.” KGB general on how communists took over Russia.[3]
  • Talking about Kennesaw, Ga: “The truly most effective means of gun control is the most overlooked.  I will show you one city and their way of virtually eliminating crime, then ask yourself, “If it works that well there, and the opposite way increases crime, why is  the federal government not doing this?”  Other nations do with great success.[4]  Why are there not more cities and states and countries doing this?”

Hidden agendas scare me.  Especially when they leave us, as people and as a nation, defenseless and vulnerable.

Makes one wonder just what their agenda really is, doesn’t it?
