“Just as we fired the first shot to start the revolution, this might be the first shot – no pun intended – to start a movement against assault weapons that would capture the state and therefore maybe explode to reach the country.”
-Robert Rotberg author and catalyst of Lexington’s gun ban proposal.
Lexington, Massachusetts. Does the name of that quaint New England town ring a bell for anyone? It should, Lexington, MA, is where American independence was kicked into high gear. On April 19, 1775, the British “red coats” marched out of Boston, heading for Concord, intending to seize caches of arms stored by local militias. They were first met on the Lexington town green and the skirmish was on, the rest as they say is history.
Fast-forward almost 240 years to the day and some of the residents of Lexington have come full circle.
They are now advocating for the government to seize legally owned firearms from the town’s residents.
