Boston Martial Law: ‘They Were Confiscating Guns From Residents’

(21st Century Wire)  The timing of the Boston Bombing with the national partisan gun control debate is a collision of two events that is hard to overlook when you take into account the very real Katrina-style imposition of Martial Law which descended  so quickly on the city of Boston last week.

Would the federal government use an opportunity like that of the Boston Bombing in order to grab residents’ guns under the guise of national security?

During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, local and federal law enforcement were openly confiscating lawfully-owned fire arms from residents, in some cases by force at gun-point, and many were speculating this past week whether or not this would indeed happen in Boston as police put the city on lock-down while searching residents’ houses door-to-door in what has been said is America’s largest-ever manhunt for suspected student, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, now in custody and facing charges for using a ‘weapon of mass destruction’.

Although we can only confirm that it has been said, this piece was posted yesterday on Hands off Syria Facebook page by blogger Suzy Kassam who reports that gun seizures did indeed occur in Watertown, MA:

“I came back to America last week to grab my hard drives, all my stuff, and to get rid of my place in Boston —- only to be greeted with a reminder of how much I hated all the bullshit lies and corruption spoiling this once-great country. You know, my best friend worked one block from the bombing. Usually during the Marathon races, all businesses and offices are closed due to heavy heavy traffic. But on that day, my best friend had to go into his office for a meeting. At around five-ish that day, I had just woken up…when he came through the door in a state of shock. He couldn’t talk. I didn’t even know what had happened because I slept through it all. I still have jet lag.

Then the next day, we weren’t allowed out at all…not even to get some coffee. Men dressed in black gear paraded through the streets with weapons. In Watertown, they were confiscating guns from residents. This they don’t tell you on the news. I understand that perhaps the “suspect” may be tempted to fish for weapons, but what about the people that may need to protect themselves from the “suspect” or the government?…

(…) Not only did a bill pass to spy on you (on the same day of the bombing), but now there will be more eyes in the skies, a stronger push for confiscating guns, and no Miranda rights to be read to anybody. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but one who studies multiple theories to get to the truth.

A country that has no conscience when attacking the innocent anywhere, obviously sees no value in human life. Hence, it also sees no problem attacking its own innocent citizens.”
