‘No Ma’am’: Letter From US Marine To Dianne Feinstein Goes Viral

The following letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston and headlined “No ma’am.,” 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 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

    Colonel Hayes Hodges: You ever had a pissed-off Marine on your ass?
    National Security Advisor William Sokal: Is that a threat?
    Colonel Hayes Hodges: Oh, yes, sir.

    I guess he’s not planning to make a life out of the Corps. Also guessing he hasn’t yet encountered a “gay” marine.

    Maybe that’s what the “2004-2012″ means.

    I hope that, when the civil war begins, we exercise the second amendment on the offending politicians, not just the average opinionated Joe-on-the-street.

    “sleeping giant” as a proxy for all the inevitable internet tough guy challenges. Not singling you out personally as you may be a good and decent human being:

    We know we’re just typing from the comfort of a safe, warm environment, well-fed and at peace. We all know the moment-of-truth will be the exact opposite. It will be a literal horror.

    There will be a succession of gut-checks along the way if the communists persist in their disarmament efforts. Many will simply choose to follow the totalitarian laws, register their guns or turn them in. For example, Susana Gratia-Hupp, the author of the Texas Concealed Handgun law who saw her parents shot to death in Killeen has already publicly stated that if the government points a gun at her kid’s head demanding she surrender her weapons, she will. She has seen the horror, literally been there and done that. I respect her decision. That’s what a REAL gut check looks like. She’s a woman, older now and doesn’t want to see her children murdered by the Government.

    But know this. There is a cadre of combat veterans, police and others born during a time when the very same ideology threatened to incinerate our nation and conquer the world, plunging it into slavery. The Walter Mittys have been weeded out. Some of us have retreats, are professionally instructed gunmen, some even hunters of gunmen. We train as we will fight. Not ideational, but years of expensive small-arms and tactics training, decades of weekly practice regardless of weather or other commitments.

    No one wants this shit, I am already losing sleep, anxious, deeply concerned. It can be stopped now. I pray it is. But there is no more time to waste responding to your class of defeatist posts, we have work to do.

    ObamaCare creates a mechanism of centralized control over people. That’s the intent of this monster of a bill, not affordable health care. And it will be used to identify gun owners. Think your health records are private? Have you been to the doctor lately? Asked about owning a gun? Why do you think they ask, do you think they care about your safety? Say yes to owning a gun and your information is shared with another agency, and ultimately, you will be identified as a security risk. The records will be matched with other agencies.

    When the first police officer dies attempting to confiscate a citizen’s guns, every police chief in the country will re-evaluate their position on gun confiscation. That unlucky first chief will see the pain on the face of the officer’s widow and look into his children’s eyes while the chief struggles to answer their question of, “Where’s my daddy?” . A human can only stand so much of that.

    When Barack Fucking Obama tells the police to go confiscate the guns, and the police chief sees 5,000 residences with guns and he only has 15-20 officers, he’ll realize at a very short point, he will end up with zero officers. Which means all of his officers will be expended in an unconstitutional gun grab and leave the community wide open to real crime.

    Some people will willingly give up their guns. Others will defend their 2nd amendment right to the death. Which means they’ll be defending everyone’s 2nd amendment right to the death. The police know this. Unfortunately, 0bama will never get the blame for the deaths because socialists have no comprehension of root cause.

    And when 0bama tries to enforce martial law, many in the military will be like Corporal Boston. This could get ugly. It depends on whether the professional soldiers honor their oath to the Constitution or whether they follow orders. Even after the Nuremberg Trials the socialists still don’t get it; following orders to commit genocide is not a defense against the crime.

    “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” – Barack Hussein Obama, 2008

    I guess Cpl. Boston will now incur the same fate as Sgt. Gary Stein, who was discharged from the Corpse (Obama’s word)for daring to criticize the regime on his Facebook page.
