The following letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston and headlined No maam., was posted in the CNN iReport on Dec. 27 with the included note from the producer and photo. It has struck a nerve with many and is being circulated around social media venues like Twitter and Facebook.
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the governments 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 maam 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
I would volunteer, if I could be certain:
1. That my wife would be cared for the rest of her days, wanting for nothing, in the manner that I seek to care for her;
2. That my death wold be avenged ten thousandfold within a week;
3. And that the fight would not stop until the Constitution, backed but not dominated by Christianity, prevailed in the land.
As a former soldier, I only fear giving my life for a futility, or worse, for those who will surrender as soon as their comfort is threatened.
Curious that “wold” passes muster with the spell checker.
It is socialism, here called liberalism which in a direct and indirect manner is making sure that a good portion of our society breeds an endless supply of destitute and ignorant beings which provide a constant stream of new customers for drugs coming in to this country and keeps the drug cartels in business. All you have to do is check the statistics.....what makes up the jail population and who does all the shooting....and then along comes a “Feinstein” and wants to curtail gun possession, where as she should be more concerned about the spread of a virus by the name of socialism, what ails our society. Sad, sad indeed......Oh well...once again every one have a Happy New Year!
How about some RAW numbers? Has this been read by millions yet? Of those; how many agree with this courageous Marine? Millions upon millions, I hope. :-)
I don't respect any man that served the Usurper.
When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty - Thomas Jefferson
Ask a Liberal one simple question, how does disarming ME make YOU any safer?
While probably true, I must point out that there is no such thing as a former Marine.
The Marine served HIS COUNTRY for eight years.
He did not SERVE the Usurper. Only Dictators, Emperors, Kings and Pharaohs are “served”.
Me thinks you should rethink the content of your Post.
I am an American Soldier...defender of freedom against tyranny
and when I enter the valley of death
and the agent of Satan appears at my shoulder
I will be resolute and fear no evil
And my Lord in heaven will guide my sword.
“Now I read this letter where the Marine says, I will not have some woman who..... If he ever gets married, I hope he does not destroy his marriage because of his attitude toward women.....”
That’s what you brought from the letter?....He in no way was disrespectful or showed any animosity towards women in what was written......Actually with all due respect, you sound like the one who is applying your own personal issues to the theme of his letter...
I caught that, too, and thank you for writing what you did. How about, “I don’t put my life on the line every night...”, from a cop husband. The uniform doesn’t automatically make the hero.
That said, the marine is brave to write that letter and take a stand.
I do not know about how the Marines are sworn in but my oath was to uphold the Constitution, and not to any pResident. The CIC is just one link in the chain of command, and EVERY link in that chain can be changed.
Who’s first will probably be determined by the action’s of those who will be sent to deprive us of our second amendment rights.
You, Sir, are an idiot! He serves the Constitution, not the person in the white hut. His oath is to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.
I'm sure the IRS is working on their audit plans. They'll do it for every year he made a penny, one year at a time. He will have people showing up saying they were getting complaints that he was seen carrying illegal weapons into his house. Some lib judge will get them search warrants. They will shoot his dog if he has one. If not, a dead dog will show up on his porch.
Obama does not like people messing with his troops. I hope he is careful. I worry they will pull a fake, "We had to shoot him 37 times because he answered the door with a weapon pointed at us and would not put it down."
Then the media can read the provided script, "Yes, this was the SAME gun-nut guy who wrote a rambling paranoid rant against Senator Feinstein that has received wide acclaim on assault-weapon-crazy websites. We are also investigating to see whether this is the same Marine who was in the VA mental ward and who has been writing threatening letters to various gun-safety politicians."
Of course I'm being paranoid. None of these things have EVER happened to anyone in real-life. /s
I am bringing 44 years experience living with a man who could sound as respectful as this man most of the time, but after what he said I began to see subtle signs just like what I see in this letter.
“Thats pretty much how most Americans feel. She is in trouble if she thinks she can pull this off. Let her try. It will be her undoing!”
I’m just retrospectively sorry that Feinswine wasn’t in George Moscone’s office when Dan White paid his visit! This woman and her third husband have used her office to make themselves rich at the expense of the taxpayers.
