Blood Was Inevitable

It doesn’t matter whose blood, or who fired the first shot. Whether it was fired by an eager patriot, a nervous redcoat, or a drunken hunter not even on the field, is immaterial. What matters is that the shot was fired and the road to a new nation was trod. The path to this point had been tumultuous, and it was far from set in stone, even after blood had been spilled, but it was now a different path than what had been. No longer would they entreat their king for redress of grievances with lengthy tomes. Now they would speak with the ferocity of black powder and cold steel, and the hot blood of patriots.

The afternoon of April 18, 1775, Dr. Joseph Warren, considered by Governor Gage as the most dangerous man in the colonies, had seen five British officers on horseback returning to Boston along Charleston Neck. Their mission had been to reconnoiter the route for an armed excursion into the countryside to seize militia arms and arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock, two of the most vocal and radical of the patriots agitating against the long line of usurpations of King George III. The reconnaissance had been designed to prevent raising alarm among the colonists. Instead Dr. Warren mounted the steeple of the Old North Church and lit two lanterns, launching Paul Revere and Richard Dawes on their famous Midnight Ride.

Early on the morning of April 19 approximately 800 British soldiers boarded boats manned by Royal Navy sailors on a deserted beach of Boston’s Back Bay. The men were Royal Marines under Major Pictairn, and Grenadiers and Light Infantry flank companies, the elite of the British Army. Overall command was under Lt. Col. Francis Smith, an experienced and aged officer. Through a source so close to General Gage that his, or possibly her, identity remains a secret to this day, Dr. Warren learned that the column’s target was Concord; and Adams and Hancock.

While the regulars marched through the idyllic countryside, the Sons of Liberty and Minute Men were assembling at Lexington Green and in the surrounding woods militiamen were turning out in ever increasing numbers. As the sun rose over Lexington Common the lead British column drew up in line facing the 80 or so loosely assembled militia who had just exited the Buckman Tavern. British  Marine Leftenant Jesse Adair, commanding the advanced guard, ordered Capt. John Parker to dismiss his militia and not impede the forces march to Concord.

This game had been played before. The redcoats and colonists had been playing cat and mouse for months, trying to capture patriot stores in a series of bloodless skirmishes called Powder Alarms. The British would sally forth, the colonists’ early alarm system of dispatch riders, bugles and drums warned of their excursion, and the arms caches were dispersed. Though Capt. Parker expected that today would be no different, he had no illusions what an engagement with trained British regulars would mean. He had no intention of instigating a fight, and had formed his men so as not to block the road to Concord; but he also was determined to make a statement of defiance. “Stand your ground; don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

Lt. Adair marched his men down the common in an effort to flank and surround the militia, while the follow on companies under Maj. Pictairn drew up in their front. Lt.William Sutherland rushed the patriots brandishing his sword, yelling “Lay down your arms, you damned rebels!” Adair’s men rushed forward shouting “Huzzah!”, bayonets leveled, to confuse the rebels. Both Pictairn and Parker ordered their men to hold their fire, but in all of the confusion, someone discharged their musket. The “Shot Heard ‘Round The World” had been fired.

The British, acting in an undisciplined manner and without orders, unleashed a devastating volley into the confused ranks of militia.  The militia broke and wisely ran for their lives, leaving behind eight dead and 10 wounded. Those killed were Samuel Hadley, John Brown, Jonathon Harrington, Caleb Harrington, Asahel Porter, Robert Munroe, Jonas Parker, and Isaac Muzzey.

The British officers regained control of their men and reformed them for the march to Concord, but in the surrounding countryside the hornet’s nest of Minute Men were swarming.

When they arrived in Concord they found most of the arms had been evacuated. While they fruitlessly searched the buildings and nearby farms, the militia formed on the hills over looking the North Bridge over the Concord River. They formed into a column and marched against the regulars on the opposite bank. To the militia’s surprise the British fired a live volley and two Minute Men fell dead. The militia stopped and fired a volley of their own, and this time it was the British who broke. For most of the redcoats it was their first terrifying taste of combat, and facing an overwhelming force in a confusing situation, they did the unthinkable; the vaunted Lobsterback turned tail and ran.

Both sides then settled into a tense standoff, watching each other from defensive positions while the remainder of the British forces finished their empty search of Concord Town. A local lunatic wandered between the lines selling hard cider to both sides, who sat in stunned disbelief that lethal shots had actually been fired, that blood had finally and truly been spilled.

After lunch the British formed into columns for the march back to Boston. About a mile east of Concord at a crossroads and bridge named Merriam’s Corner, the colonists descended on the British column. To the increasingly worried regulars it was “as if men fell from the sky.” From there, and at places named Bloody Angle, Mason’s Farm, and Fiske’s Hill, the militiamen ambushed the retreating regulars, sniping at them from behind walls and trees with an accurate and deadly fire. At Lexington, the bloodied and bandaged men of Parker’s militia gained revenge when they initiated an ambush which wounded Col. Smith himself.

The planned British withdrawal was now a rout, with British officers having to draw their swords to force their men into lines to engage the yankee militia which swarmed around them like angry wasps. They were close to surrender until they were met with a relief force of 1,000 men with artillery under Lord Percy. Under Percy the reformed column resumed the march in good order, but even more militia had taken the field and the harassing raids and ambushes continued with increasing ferocity and lethality all the way back to Boston. With the increasing desperation of their plight the famed British discipline broke down yet again  and soldiers began plundering and looting houses and taverns along the route of march, killing anyone they suspected of being involved in the fighting, including two drunks in Menotomy whose only crime was being too drunk to hide in the cellar.

By dark the ragged column of British marched back into Boston under the protective guns of the Royal Navy. They had marched more than 40 miles in 21 hours, had not slept, been under fire for eight hours, and had lost 75 men killed, 174 wounded and 53 missing. When they woke the next morning Boston was surrounded by a militia force of over 15,000. The nascent beginnings of the Continental Army had marched from all over New England when the rumor of spilled blood was born true.

Although a state of actual war now existed between the colonies and Great Britain, it would be more than a year of debates before the course of complete separation and independence was finally decided upon on July 4th, 1776, widely recognized as the birth of our nation. But it was on that bright spring morning at Lexington Green that the first step on the path to our ordained destiny as the Great Experiment, towards American Exceptionalism, to freedom and liberty, was finally and irrevocably taken.

    Take a moment to help our present-day patriots:

    Leavenworth 10 Freedom Ride

    Our mission is to wholly support and work toward the release of The Leavenworth 10, a group of American soldiers/Marines incarcerated at Ft. Leavenworth for killing members of Al-Qaeda or Iraqi insurgents.

    These decorated and committed soldiers/Marines who honorably served their country—achieving a significant number of combat medals over multiple deployments—are now serving sentences ranging between 10 and 40 years. They and their families have fallen victim to the untenable Rules of Engagement, demoralizing “Catch and Release” policies, and climate of political correctness that govern our troops’ actions while trying to survive a combat zone.

    While these soldiers/Marines have been judged very harshly by the military, our military leadership is currently releasing imprisoned enemy combatants back to the battlefield. We request the same mercy for these troops, many of whom have been denied clemency time and again. The Leavenworth 10 do not pose any threat and deserve to be returned to their families.

    Please take the time to read their stories to the left. If you believe they should not be forgotten and left behind, contact your US Congressman and US Senators to bring awareness to their cases and most importantly let these soldiers/Marines know that we wholly and completely support each of them.

    I have managed to find the list Dingy Harry Reid uses to determine if someone is a Domestic Terrorist. :em06:

    You are a Domestic Terrorist if:

    You support the Constitution of the United States as written.

    You think the government is to large.

    You did something peacefully that annoyed Harry Reid.

    You did something that interfered with Harry Reid’s latest moneymaking scheme.

    You own guns and know how to use them.

    You support the Tea Party’s basic ideas.

    You think the Federal Government owns to much land.

    You are against the Affordable Healthcare Act.

    You peacefully assemble to protest the actions of a government bureaucracy.

    You don’t vote Democrat.

    You believe that people should provide ID when voting.

    You don’t support Harry Reid and think he should be removed from office per the laws of the United States.

    You support Cliven Bundy even if you didn’t attend the protest at his ranch during the weekend of April 12, 2014.

    You read Tom Kratman novels.

    You read Michael Z. Williamson novels.

    You read John Ringo novels. (You may also be a potential sex offender as well)

    You read the forums on Baen’s Bar.

    You read any books published by Baen Publishing.

    You bathe regularly.

    You think Harry Reid should actually do his duty and pass a federal budget.

    I guess that makes pretty much all of us Domestic Terrorists.

    Gonna be interesting times, that’s for sure. Not sure when the first shot will be fired, and up until a few days ago, I’d have bet on either the intermountain West, or the Southeast. Now, with both New York and Connecticut gun owner telling their state gov’ts to “Suck It!” I’m not so sure where it will be.

    But since I have two children, four step-children, and ten grandkids. I really hope it doesn’t come to that. If it does, I hope we can clean up the mess before the grandkids have to do it.

    This is some information I found that a private citizen (heck, is anyone allowed to be PRIVATE any more?) about New York City’s handgun laws. This is what he submitted to in order to get a pistol license. (Note that in practice, you end up paying about five large for the “privilege.”)

    Read the whole thing. Know that this is what the Leftists (e.g., Bloomberg) are drooling to impose on all American citizens/SERFS.

    Getting a NYC Handgun License

    The process for obtaining a handgun license in New York City is long (between 3 – 6 months, and waits up to 8 months are not uncommon), and compared to many other jurisdictions, rather expensive. It’s not particularly difficult, but it is tedious and incredibly time consuming. It tests your patience, and there is a lot of bureaucracy to deal with.

    The Application There are 2 ways to complete the application itself. You can type it, or you can download it, fill it out electronically, and print it. Handwritten applications are not accepted, nor are photocopies. The majority of the questions are straight forward. Be sure to include your driver’s license and passport number (if you have either) on your Application Addendum in answer to Question 19, as these are a “license or permit issued to you by any City, State or Federal agency.”

    Along with the application itself, you will need the following:

    Fees – 2 US Postal Money Orders, made payable to New York City Police Department are required, one for $340 (for the application), and one for either $94.25 (electronic fingerprints) or $105.25 (ink fingerprints), depending on how you are being fingerprinted. These fees are non-refundable. The NYPD now accepts credit cards as well.
    Photographs – 2 recent “passport” (1.5? square) color photos.
    Birth Certificate – required to prove your birth date. Other acceptable forms proving your birth date include: military record, US Passport or Baptismal certificate.
    Proof of Citizenship/Alien Registration – if you were not born in the US, you must submit your naturalization papers, or other evidence of citizenship, or your Alien Registration Card. AND for those living here less than 7 years, you must submit a good conduct certificate from your country of origin.
    Military Discharge – your separation papers (DD 214) and your discharge papers.
    Proof of Residence – this can be: a real estate tax bill, ownership shares in a co-op or condo, or a lease. You may also be asked to bring your driver’s license, NY State Income Tax return, or a utility bill.
    Arrest/Summons/Order of Protection Information – related to question 23 on the application, any arrest information (even if the case was dismissed or the record sealed) must be divulged. Any summons received for any violation other than things like a parking ticket must be divulged, i.e any “summons in lieu of arrest” that requires you to appear in court at a later date. If you ever had an Order of Protection or a Restraining Order issued against you, you must divulge the name/address/phone number of the complainant, their relationship to you, and the reason the Order was issued.
    Proof of Business Ownership (for business licenses) – see the details in the application for the appropriate documentation, depending on your circumstances.
    Letter of Necessity (for carry permits) – you won’t get a carry permit without showing cause, and if you have cause, you should probably already know what is required. Follow instructions on Page 3 of the application.

    Please note, BRING ORIGINALS, not copies of supporting documents. Also note, your application and any addendum MUST BE NOTARIZED. This is a sample Application Addendum (MS Word DOC).

    Included with the application is a request for the following letters. These letters must also be notarized.

    Request for Pre-Exemption – this isn’t needed by most, if you require it, you should know why beforehand.
    Affidavit of Familiarity with Rules and Law – states you are familiar with NYC Title 38 Chapter 5 (licensee responsibilities), NYS Article 35 (deadly force), NYS Article 265 (criminal possession of firearms), NYS Article 400 (licensee responsibilities), rules regarding Safety Locking Devices (trigger locks), NYC Charter 18-C (public safety zones – included w/ application), US Title 18 (persons prohibited from possessing firearms – included w/ application), and the NYPD pamphlet on terrorism and suspicious activity. See the “Legislation” links to the right for more info.
    Affidavit of Cohabitant – if you live with anyone over 18, they must complete this affidavit, if you don’t live with anyone, you need to complete an affidavit stating that you live alone.
    Safe Guardian Affidavit – this designates a person who is responsible for your firearms in the event of your disability or death. They do not need to have a firearm permit.

    Submit The Application Applications must be submitted in person at 1 Police Plaza, License Division, Room 110, Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:30am – 3:00pm. You will be fingerprinted at that time.

    Wait for the Letter Typically, you can wait anywhere from 1 – 3 months for a letter identifying the officer assigned to handle your application. The letter looks like this, and will ask you to schedule your interview along with his request for any further documentation. Many people are asked to supply an Affidavit with familiarity of Article 35, Article 265 and Article 400; an Affidavit of Proof of Employment; and a current utility bill. If the utility bill is not in your name, you must supply another Affidavit from the person whose name appears on the bill. I also had to supply my Social Security Card, current bank statements and 1040 Income Tax return along with photos of my home (because I am self employed), my marriage license, and my DMV abstract. I guess I’m just lucky. Call the officer during the hours stated on the letter and schedule the interview. You will also have to get your character reference letters together.

    Reference Letters Currently, I am told you are asked to supply 3 reference letters from people that have known you for at least 2 years (mine had to be from people that knew me at least 5 years, YMMV). The letter should state that you are “of good moral character.” The more detailed and personal it is, the better. This is a basic sample of a Reference Letter (PDF).

    The Interview It’s really no big deal. Look presentable, and be prepared. One individual’s questioning went something like this (my experience was similar):

    Q: Why do you want a gun? A: Home defense & target shooting.

    Q: Where will you store the gun? A: Unloaded, in a locked box or safe, with a trigger lock.

    Q: Where will you store the ammo? A: In a different locked box or safe.

    Q: Have you ever owned a gun? A: Yes or No, if yes be ready to supply details.

    Q: Is your housemate aware you are applying for this permit? A: Yes, he/she has already signed an affidavit to that end or “I live alone.”

    Q: Will you be transporting the firearm? A: Yes, to and from the gun range with no stops.

    Q: How will you transport the firearm to and from the range? A: Pistol in a locked box, unloaded and trigger locked. Ammunition in a separate container. Both the pistol and the ammo will be carried in a way so as to obscure their presence on my person.

    Q: Have you ever been assaulted? A: Yes or No. Provide details and dates if answer is yes.

    Q: Has your domicile ever been robbed? A: Yes or No. Provide details and dates if answer is yes.

    Q: When is the use of deadly force permissible? A: When someone has broken into my home and has demonstrated their intention to kill myself or someone else in my home.

    The key thing to remember is that whenever you are storing or traveling with a firearm, it must be unloaded in a locked container or safe, with a trigger lock, ammunition kept separately.

    Wait for the Approval/Denial Letter… After waiting another 1 – 3 months, you will get your approval letter (hopefully). You now have 30 days to pick up your Purchase Authorization. If you are denied, you must file an appeal under Article 78. At this point, I strongly suggest obtaining a lawyer. You have 4 months from the date of the denial to appeal.

    Pick Up the License & Purchase Authorization Go back to 1 Police Plaza, with the original letter, Monday – Thursday between the hours of 9:00am – 12 noon. You will be photographed, and given your license along with one Purchase Authorization. You now have 30 days to purchase a handgun from an authorized FFL. You are now legal to rent/shoot guns in NYC.

    Buy a Gun You can purchase a firearm from any FFL, but purchases made from out of state must be transferred to an FFL in NYC. If you buy a new gun, IT MUST BE NY COMPLIANT. New guns must be shipped with spent casings fired from the manufacturer, contained in a sealed envelope. Used guns should be marked by the shipper as such. Make sure you fill out the BATFE form, get a receipt and have the FFL fill out the Purchase Authorization form.

    Every 90 days you can buy ONE handgun, pistol or revolver in the City of New York. You will need to fill out the Purchase Authorization Request Form and mail it to NYPD so that they can provide you with a “purchase Authorization” that you can use to take possession of a new handgun at the time of purchase. The most important thing to remember when filling out the form is that the caliber you write down MUST be the caliber of the handgun you purchase. You can buy a different make and model as long as the caliber on the Purchase Authorization Request Form is the same. However, it is always best to buy the handgun make and model you put down on the Purchase Authorization Request Form if at all possible. You can download the Purchase Authorization Request Form Here.

    Here are the steps to getting a Purchase Authorization: 1. Submit request for purchase authorization. Currently takes around 45-60 days. 2. PA request approval is mailed, and recipient has 30 days from the date it was MAILED (not received) to pick up the authorization. 3. Once you receive it, you have to go down to 1PP to pick up the PA. M-Tr ONLY from 9am-12pm. 4. Once you pick up the PA, you have another 30 days to purchase the actual firearm. 5. Once purchased (even if it is on the date the PA expires) you have 72 hours (not calendar days, not business days, 72 hours – which might include weekends and holidays) to bring the firearm, locked, unloaded, down to 1PP to have it inspected. Inspections are done any business day (M-F, excluding holidays) from 12pm – 2pm. Bring bill of sale, etc etc etc. 6. You’re all done. Wait another 90 days, submit your next one, and while you wait … Go shoot.

    Gun Inspection Bring the receipt (2 copies – you keep the original they get the other), Purchase Authorization, and your firearm (unloaded, trigger locked, no mag in gun, no ammo on your person, in a locked case) to back to 1 Police Plaza, Monday – Thursday between the hours of 12 noon – 3pm (if you’re quick, you can pick up your PA in the morning, buy a gun, and get back for inspection the same day). Let the checkpoint know you are carrying a firearm (and let them know it’s properly secured). Then go for your gun inspection. Your gun will be inspected, and the serial # recorded. They will then put the gun’s make, model, caliber and serial # on the gun license and hand it to you. Make sure you verify that the information, especially the serial #, is correct! I’d say every other time I have put a new gun on my license, there has been some kind of typo. If your gun’s serial # doesn’t match your license, you can be arrested, even if it was a typo or mistake on their part. You can now purchase ammunition only for the caliber(s) listed on your license.

    Be sure to request the Hunting Authorization card when you pick up your license if you ever want to leave the 5 boroughs into NY State on a Premises License. Also, read the booklet that NYPD gives you at the time of your Pistol Permit issuance. Know the laws! Ignorance of the law will not help you if you get into trouble!

    Go Shooting Now go shoot it to your heart’s content. But first, learn how to properly operate and maintain your firearm (the manual of arms) . Learn the 4 basic rules of gun safety, and practice them. Read the manual! I strongly suggest getting some good instruction in shooting fundamental and/or self defense.
