Oath Keepers and rally permit holder Gun Rights Across America-Massachusetts were unsuccessful in a motion filed yesterday to overturn the permit revocation for their planned event today on Lexington Green, but went ahead and conducted a brief oath ceremony anyway, the group’s founder Stewart Rhodes informed Gun Rights Examiner this afternoon.
“Due to the emergency nature of the moratorium in light of recent events, significantly the Boston bombing on April 15, 2013, the Plaintiff has failed to convince the court of its likelihood of success on the merits and any potential irreparable harm it may suffer therefore the motion is denied,” a handwritten margin notation explains on the Motion for Temporary Restraining Order and Emergency Interlocutory Injunction in the Middlesex Superior Court Department of the Trial Court in Woburn.
An appeal could not be filed due to the Supreme Judicial Court in Boston being closed, Rhodes explained, but despite the rally itself being cancelled, his group went ahead with a ceremony where about 200 members reaffirmed their oaths to uphold the Constitution. In spite of the concerns expressed by the Lexington Board of Selectmen in their revocation of the rally permit, people were freely gathered at nearby Concord Bridge, he observed, which seemingly proves the concerns were groundless.
