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.’
Anger: U.S. Marine Corporal Joshua Boston’s letter to Senator Diane Feinstein telling her that he will not comply with her proposed legislation to ban assault weapons has gone viral
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.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
There is this TV show called "Homeland." The premiss of the TV show is Nicholas Brody, a U.S. Marine, was held captive by al-Qaeda as a prisoner of war, who was "turned" by the enemy and now threatens the United States. The guy, Joshua Boston behind the letter, looks a lot like the lead character Nicholas Brody.
Coincidence or good script writing?
If they want to take away the guns, they will need a damn good reason to do so. What if they wan’t people to openly fight their government over their guns. What if they want you "mad as hell?" What if a lot of this is planned to coax out the people who are ready to fight for their right to own guns?
Joshua Boston is the "spark" that will start the war on guns. What do you think Sandy Hook and all the other countless shootings has been about? They don’t want anyone to have the ability to protect themselves against the emerging tyrannical governments around the world. They are now going after people who own guns and those who favor gun ownership.
So what shape will this "war" take? Are they trying to Do they want you to be "mad as hell." Do they want people to go in a full on war with their government?"
If this is the outcome they are looking for, they would need to plant someone in a position where they can "start the fire."
So how would such a war begin? With another false flag event of course.
Don’t be surprised if you soon hear about a "crazy veteran" that has attacked a bunch of politicians, taken government employees for hostages or bombed another government building.
You will probably hear things like
They would have no better reason to REALLY start taking away all the guns or get Feinstein Gun Control Bill into.
The reason and insentive is to have a reason to come after peopel with guns, who have the capability to defend themselves.
This is a script, it’s a movie ... a TV shows. Most TV watching American’s have already been "pre-program" with shows like "
