Joshua Boston USMC to Dianne Feinstein: Proclaiming the Evils of an Inanimate Object Which Your Bodyguard Carries

USMC Cpl Joshua Boston has written to Senator Dianne Feinstein and in few but concise words expressed what we should all be telling this California Liberal Senator, our Senators, and our Representatives. If this doesn’t inspire you to keep fighting for your rights, nothing will. Beyond all the passionate rhetoric from Hollywood and Liberal legislators is the hard truth boldly stated by Cpl Boston: an “inanimate object” does not wreak havoc on the public, oh and by the way, we’re not your “subjects.”

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.

I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted,
Joshua Boston
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
2004-2012

Robert Johnson, writing at BusinessInsider shares his past military service in a “soft” non-infantry unit and compares Boston’s service with his:

From someone who never developed relationships with the tools of the battlefield; who never slaved to keep a weapon performing endlessly and without question. The maintenance and care required to achieve that security in the harsh gritty environments of Iraq and Afghanistan is profound.

While the argument of no need for a weapon clip with 30 bullets may sound about right, these weapons are available, and they will never disappear. The bad guys will always have access to them. The resolution is to make the punishment so swift and terrible that fewer will consider committing these atrocities, and leave law-abiding citizens to ability to protect themselves with the same inanimate object used by the criminal. The second argument is, once this begins and is sanctioned by law, there will be no stopping it and more and more weapons will be banned – you know it’s true.

What’s the functional difference between an assault weapon and a semiautomatic rifle? You do understand that the answer is “nothing”? An assault weapon is not an automatic weapon. It is semiautomatic like most guns now sold in the United States, i.e., it fires every time the trigger is pulled. What sets it apart is its scary-looking features.

What’s more powerful, the Bushmaster .223 used by Adam Lanza in his slaughter or the average deer-hunting rifle? If the answer is the average deer-hunting rifle — indeed, many states ban the Bushmaster .223 for deer hunting because it is too weak — will you attempt to ban them, too?

    The anti-gun crowd knows that Obama will try to strip us of our rights. They don’t like any guns and will try to turn us into England and Australia. Both nations have seen a surge in violent crimes and England is now banning knives.

      findalis, they will have a fight on their hands.

    That is what a man and a citizen sounds like. Good for CPL Boston.

      neenergyobserver, that was my thoughts as well. This is who we need protecting this country. We have plenty of Joshua Boston’s, but few able leaders.

    A man after my own heart. Already had that line drawn in the sand. Let it begin here and now. I stand with Joshua Boston. Great name for the cause of freedom, btw. Hopefully there will be 100 million like minded patriots to march on washington, if need be, to let them know what a real Americas think and feel. It’s in the genes of patriots. I am forwarding this letter to all my friends and family. All patriots should rally behind this patriot.

    richard, when the TeaParty marched on Washington the night ObamaCare passed, I thought it would make a difference. Perhaps 100,000 Second-Amendment-minded patriots will make a difference. I agree, it is a great name for the cause of freedom. He is active duty. Correction: Joshua Boston is no longer an active duty Marine. I wonder what will happen to him now. God bless him, please.
