One U.S. Marine was more than a little displeased with California Sen.
Dianne Feinstein’s draconian
gun control proposal, which includes an assault weapons ban and provisions
on handguns and even “grandfathered weapons.”
The letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston, was titled “No
ma’am” and was first posted
on CNN iReport on Dec. 27. The letter has since gone viral and has been
shared extensively on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, as it
seemingly has resonated with a segment of the American population.
Read Boston’s entire “No ma’am” letter below and then share it with
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.
United States Marine Corps
