National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently
banned assault 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
Gage issued a ban on military-style assault 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
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.
