U.S. Marine to gun-grabber Senator Dianne Feinstein: “No Ma’m”

Joshua Boston, a retired Corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, has a message for Senator Dianne Feinstein (D, CA) concerning her newest gun banning bill. Corporal Boston says, “No Ma’m.


Breitbart  Boston posted an open letter to Senator Feinstein at CNN’s ireport site on December 27 to let DiFi know that he, at least, would not submit to the government denuding him of his Second Amendment rights.


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


Warner Todd Huston of Breitbart spoke to Mr. Boston about his letter. Here is the conversation:

Warner Todd Huston: What drove you to post this reply to Senator Feinstein?

Joshua Boston: I’ve been seeing this nonsense about gun control in the news since forever. Senator Feinstein regularly touts the effectiveness of the first Assault Weapons Ban while pointing out the “loopholes.” So she proposes this new ban legislation. Given the tragedy that happened recently it has considerably more traction with folks, most who rely in some major way on emotions and what they’re being told by the media about these “Weapons of Mass Destruction.” My Windham Weaponry SRC sits in my home loaded and ready to be used should the need ever arise. It does not make me a criminal.

I’m sick of being told by people in Washington D.C. what is okay for me to own for my own personal defense while they enjoy the safety of many armed guards with better firearms than I have access to. It’s hypocritical.

WTH: In your opinion, what do you think the Second Amendment is for?

JB: Looking at the founder’s times and what they had just gone through, it was something they put in there for us should we ever find ourselves in their shoes and have to reassert, because of whatever manifestation of tyranny, our inherent right to freedom and liberty.

WTH: Do you support concealed carry laws?

JB: I hold a CHL with the state of Texas. I would prefer there not be a bureaucratic apparatus whose hoops I have to jump through so that I may defend myself should the need ever arise outside of my home. Who are these legislators to tell me that I may not defend myself outside of my home because they don’t have my fingerprints on file?

WTH: Do you believe in any sort of gun restrictions?

JB: The only gun restriction I would favor is one in which only VIOLENT felons are prevented from purchasing or possessing a firearm. Other than that, why does the government or the police need them if I am not allowed to have one?

WTH: Some liberals say regular Americans shouldn’t be allowed to have guns because they aren’t trained. As a trained member of the military yourself, do you think average citizens have the ability to use guns correctly?

JB: Despite the training I received while in the Marines, I am a regular American. I am not exceptional. I am not superior. I am an American just like any other citizen. I’ve seen “average citizens” use guns extraordinarily efficiently when I go to the range. This is because they are responsible people who seek knowledge when they don’t know something. So yes they have the ability, and they should be able to purchase whatever weapons they deem sufficient for their needs.

WTH: Some people fear that government will use the military to forcibly disarm the public if gun banning laws get passed. What is your sense of your fellows in the armed forces. Do you think they’d follow orders to forcibly disarm the public?

JB: In my 8 years of service I could probably count on one hand the number of people that I met who would forcibly disarm the American public. The vast majority of American service members that I know and that I served with recognize that the Constitution is what we pledge to obey.

WTH: Do you feel that there will be any retaliation by the Marines for having posted your reply?

JB: I was honorably discharged on July 31st of this year. I’d certainly hope they wouldn’t “retaliate” in any way because I am doing my civic duty and keeping myself informed. I think that would go against our motto: “Honor Courage and Commitment” 

 WTH: Any other thoughts? 

 JB: I just hope that our elected representatives do not vote for this heinous attempt to make me and my fellow Americans defenseless against predators and criminals.


We at Breitbart salute Joshua Boston and hope that he is not uncommon among the members of our illustrious armed forces.

  1. Thank you Brave Marine. It is time for more of our finest Patriots to speak out. You are an outstanding Marine and a true American Patriot. You are a breath of fresh air.

  2. Over my dead body will they take away my rights to have a gun to protect myself.Those in power that want to take that right away from all those that want to own a gun are nothing but hypocrites.Soon they will ban knives,,well,how about cars,they kill more people then guns.The list can go on and on.Feinstein like the rest of them are nothing but brainless morons.How they even got elected in the first place boggles my mind.I am very proud of the Marine that stood up to her.

  3. The young man says it all very respectfully. The folk I talk with say the same thing but the word respectfully isn’t to be heard anytime. Feinstein sucks.

  4. “average citizens have the ability to use guns correctly”

    Considering that it is possible for a 16 year old to receive a license for that other ‘weapon of mass destruction’, the auto mobile – why can’t gun licensing also be subject to the same type of testing?

  5. on the wall going out the back door sets eight rifles the pride of them all is a 1860 44-40 Henry belonged to my uncle two times back in generation his was the first hand on that rifle , my great great grand children will put his or her hand on that rifle , that I will spill blood to make it so . Nobody Notime steps in that back door to take them as long as I draw breath .

  6. If the govt takes our firearms it won’t be a country worth living in. We’ll need to fear the govt. as well as the criminals. Wasn’t it Jefferson who said “when the people fear the govt. there is tyranny; when the govt fears the people there is Liberty”? Before Hitler the German people had firearms; before the Communists took over the Russian people had the right to own firearms. Nuff said?

  7. it is not just ” the second amendment ” either joshua !!!!!!! , do you realize that the ” scumbags” in washington just reached into our pockets again and stole from us also ! , theives , liars and cheats ! all of them !!!!!!!

  8. People will use anything they want to murder people. They use knives, baseball bats, being tied up and dragged behind a truck, bombs, cars and yes, some people use guns. Do we ban all bats, knives and so on? Banning guns to stop the killing is like banning alcohol in the old days to stop drinking. It did not work. In fact it gave rise to underground mafia style of making illegal alcohol. J. Boston speaks for all honest and decent people who must be allowed to own guns. There can be ways to ban criminals from buying legal guns but that will not stop them from buying illegal guns. This law, if passed will cost billions to implement and to enforce with no success. Canada tried to unsuccessfully ban certain types of guns and to register all guns. After billions of dollars wasted, the gun registry was cancelled. The gun law, if passed would allow the government to legally search your homes on the false tips of other people and just because they can say that they are looking for all unregistered guns. This is true for people who do not have guns to also have their homes legally searched because the government suspects that you have a gun. Say no to gun laws. They do not work anywhere at anytime. This is just like re-arranging the deck chairs on the titanic. Pure stupidity.

    • ” this is just like re-arranging the deck chairs on the titanic” yeah you could say that, but I suspect, watch the other hand because it is about their intentions, notice: how they are just putting the fiscal cliff out of everyone’s mind with these threats of gun confication the amount of rounds allowed in our tools, etc/, etc., yeah watch the other hand, it goes right up their with their intentions of the cloward-piven strategy, bankrupt the Nation in the process while distracting their useful idiots, hoping and praying the despot behind the curtain, obama’s bin lyn’ is part of that crew and very much in control of the mesages he intends to distribute to the masses, you know, and he’s doing all he is able to see it to fruition, while they slept, right?

  9. I’m happy you posted this. I read this a.m. I totally agree with the Marine although I live in Canada, a gun-free society.

    The U.S. is different and every citizen should be armed. There would be less crime. This is not difficult to understand.

    • Susan, I have relatives who live in Canada and they have all types of guns for hunting, competative target shooting and so on. I understood that Canada has recently stopped and dropped the Canadian gun registry because it was a huge waste of billions of dollars with no success of stopping or even controlling the ownership of guns. Apparently the law that was stopped, allowed for the legal search of homes to determine if they had any guns that were unregistered and so on. With the registry gone these house searches for guns, are no longer legal. Please correct my information if I am wrong. Thanks. CAT.
