This community followed Koresh believe system so seriously that they had over 200 weapons and defended themselves against the federal authorities.
During the search of the complex by the Federal authorities because they wanted to arrest Koresh the Branch Davidians started to open fire against the Federal authorities. There was a standoff for about 51 day with the FBI against the community who refused to leave the community. Koresh did not want to surrender and by 1993 FBI began to throw tear gas and a fire erupted which burnt down the building complex. Many was found dead along with Koresh which ended the war.
