Marine veteran to Feinstein: 'No ma'am'

The letter from a Marine Corps veteran who served in Afghanistan to California Sen. Dianne Feinstein over her proposed ban of certain guns has reportedly gone viral on the Internet.

Here is the letter, courtesy of Pie N Politics:
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
Breitbart News sought out Boston for an interview, which you can read here.

Feinstein, President Obama and other leaders would do well to remember that we have a Second Amendment to the Constitution, and to keep in mind what the courts say it means. And organizations such as the California Farm Bureau Federation would do well to consider these issues before they go endorsing incumbent lawmakers 18 months before an election.
