Can’t be expressed any better than this!
A U.S. Marine Veteran, honorably discharged in 2012 after eight years of service to America, has written a response to Democratic Sen. Diane Feinstein’s plan to push additional Gun Control legislation that would force American Citizens to register their guns, and be photographed and fingerprinted. Joshua Boston submitted this letter, titled “No, Ma’am,” via CNN iReport, and it has now gone viral. In the letter, he says flatly:
“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. . . .” Read More
