The Marine, Cpl Joshua Boston, who wrote a letter titled "No Ma'am" that went viral on the Internet, in response to Senator Dianne Feinstein's gun control proposal, was interviewed on Fox and Friends, talking about why he wrote the letter, his thoughts on the lack of effectiveness of gun laws, his opposition to "gun free zones" that announce people are defenseless and more.
Video below and his entire letter which we showed before, will be republished beneath the video of the interview.
Key quote from the interview as Cpl Boston speaks to tragic results in history of governments confiscating citizens’ guns:
"It’s something we’ve seen happen time and time again in history. With Stalin, it happened in Cambodia and of course, the Third Reich. No one saw that coming until it was too late."
Cpl Boston's original letter below:
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.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
