Marine Writes Senator About New Gun Control: I Am Not Your Subject
The Marine is Joshua Boston Cpl, United States Marine Corps and the politician he wrote to is Senator Dianne Feinstein. Here’s an excerpt of the letter he wrote…
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.
As Ed Morrissey of Hot Air points out, Senator Feinstein knows a thing or two about this subject…
One key reason for the 2nd Amendment is the natural right to self-defense. Ironically, Feinstein took full advantage of that right when she needed to do so. She armed herself in response to threats in 1995, but seems to have an issue with other Americans making that same choice.
