Whether or not it's actually from a Marine is, in my opinion, beside the point. It could have been written by any one of us, millions of Americans who have been pushed too far for comfortable acceptance. We're not going to take this one laying down. We're not going to be disarmed by the Socialists, backed by Communist China and Russia, and enthusiastically endorsed by the United Nations. We are not going to accept this last attempt to strip our 2nd Amendment Rights. Feinstein and all of the other Democrats need to realize this before they bite off more than they can chew.
CNN’s iReport letter from Cpl Joshua Boston to Senator Dianne Feinstein:
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.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
