Let’s Make Signing This Letter the New American Citizenship Test

Posted on January 7, 2013 2:00 pm

Sign it? Hell, I’d swear it under oath (except the 8 years in the Marines part, since I was 6 years Navy):

From Free Republic:
_______________

The following letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston and headlined “No ma’am.,” was posted in the CNN iReport on Dec. 27:

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

    Oo-Rah!

  2. CTCompromise says:

    If The Medal of Freedom were awarded by popular vote, Corporal Joshua Boston would be wearing one ! (How appropriate and ironic his last name is !)

  3. CTCompromise says:

    High Praise! To Harvey for this entry….and at least a pound of ~~~.

    One correction should be made:
    It should be addressed not just to Feinstein, but anyone who is of the same mindset as she.

    I’d like to point out the Cpl’s last name is Boston, and that adds a level of coolness to the gentleman.

    I’d like to also point out that though I know crap about guns, I know that 1) you don’t put your finger on the trigger of one until you are ready to fire and 2) you don’t point one at anything you don’t want to shoot. In the photos of Feinstein proposing this bill, she’s holding the weapon up and aimed to the side with her finger on the trigger. I’m glad that legislation is being proposed by someone who screams about public safety while showing zero awareness of it herself.

    A very snappy salute to Cpl. Boston. If there were more folks like him, we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today. I hope others are inspired by his example. As to Feinstein, the English language does not have the words to accurately and fully describe her lowness and depravity; maybe I’ll make up a few after lunch.

    And now it’s reported he’s receiving death threats.

    Lock and load, sir.

  7. Jeremy says:

    If they don’t respect the 2nd ammendment, why would they respect the first

  8. Idahoser says:

    I always wished Petraeus (or whoever that was she bitched at for calling her “Ma’am”) would have answered, “Senator, did you just call my mother a whore?”

  9. Harvey says:

    Actually, it was Barbara Boxer who insisted on being addressed as “Senator”, but those two are ideologically interchangeable, so… close enough.

    Anyway, video of the referenced incident:

    It kills me. The guy’s got 14 ribbons on his chest, and Boxer whines “I worked so hard to get that title”.

    God… it’s like being barked at by a sick chihuahua.
