‘I am not your peasant…

I will NOT be disarmed:’

 Marine’s scathing letter  to U.S. senator over her proposed ban on assault weapons goes viral

 

A scathing letter written by a Marine veteran  blasting a proposed ban on assault weapons has gone viral online.

Cpl. Joshua Boston wrote the letter to U.S.  Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, who proposed the bill banning certain firearms and requiring gun owners to register their  weapons.

‘I am a Marine Corps veteran of eight 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,’ he writes in the  letter.

‘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.’

Boston was first deployed to Afghanistan from  2004 to 2005 and spent a total of eight years oversees serving as a Marine. He  admits he owns guns – ‘a hobby if you will’, he writes on one blog.

In his letter, which  has been shared across social media sites since it was posted on CNN iReport, he argues  the bill would lead to the government  confiscating weapons – a move he deems a threat.

 

‘I own the guns I own because I acknowledge  mankind’s shortcomings instead of pretending like they don’t exist,’ he told  CNN. ‘There are evil men in this world and there just may be a time when I need  to do the unthinkable to protect me or my family.’

In the letter, he tells Feinstein: ‘You ma’am  have overstepped a line that is not your domain.’

‘I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that  has been established by the  media and your misinformation campaign against the  American public,’ he  writes, adding, ‘We, the people, deserve better than  you.’

The letter was posted on CNN iReport on  December 27 and has since been  shared extensively on social media sites like  Facebook and Twitter.

On Twitter, a user named Mid Stutsman  provided a link to the letter and  wrote, ‘Go Joshua Boston…Semper Fi! U.S.  Marine’s Scathing Response to Sen. Feinstein’s Gun Control Proposal.’

Twitter user @LaTicaChica added: ‘Doesn’t get  any better that that! Big fist  pump, three cheers, etc. for Joshua Boston’s  verbal smack down with the  TRUTH!’

Feinstein’s bill names 120 specific  firearms  she seeks the country to ban, import and manufacture, as well  as other  semiautomiatic rifle, handguns and shotguns that have more  military  characteristics.

It also bans large-capacity ammunition  feeding devices accepting more than 10 rounds.

Yet it seeks protection for  legitimate  hunters and gun owners by allowing more than 900 weapons used for sport and  those that are antique and manually operated.

Cpl. Boston’s reference to Feinstein carrying  a weapon may be a reference to her desire to outlaw handgun ownership while  admitting she carries one herself, for protection.

This latest debate over gun ownership was  sparked by the December 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown,  Connecticut, where six staff and 20 children were shot dead.

CNN host Piers Morgan has taken one of the  toughest stances on gun control, even calling one pro-gun campaigner an  ‘unbelievably stupid man’ after he said more guns would cut  crime.

His comments have led to more than 100,000  people signing a petition to get the British host deported from the United  States, claiming he has undermined the ‘rights of Americans’.

More than 30,000 people die from gun injuries  each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Gun  injuries account for nearly 1 in 5 injury deaths in the U.S.

‘YOU MA’AM HAVE OVERSTEPPED A  LINE’: JOSHUA BOSTON’S LETTER

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

  1. For me a former marine and former Cal native I think Diane Feinstein should be arrested and she joins an elite group of in the higher echelons of sluggcuntlery preceded by Hitlery, Janet Reno, Janet Napolitano, Baba Boxer and of course her sluggery highness Queen Elizabeth, and her cousin Queen Beatrix. Of Course we know there’s to many to list…but those Nazi bitches are the worse. ArhurRah / Semper Fi

  2. Obama had declared “WAR” on a portion of our Constitution, specifically our 2nd. Amendment. This is a treasonous violation of his oath of office to protect our Constitution. Any such laws/policies coming out of Obama’s office at this point will be totally unconstitutional and therefore null and void. WE THE PEOPLE will NOT honor any such executive order that is in direct violation of our Constitution and, will accept Mr. Obama’s War declaration. I pray Mr. Obama realizes what he has just done while attempting to become a world dictator and accepts the full responsibility for the upcoming outcome of HIS Declaration of War against both our Constitution and the Citizens of the United States Of America. This is THE shot heard around the world Mr. Obama, This shall be your legacy, the dismantling of the United States Government as we know it today.

  3. That was beautiful! Awesome letter!
