Former Marine Joshua Boston stated he was the target of death threats by gun ban activists. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Boston’s letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein about a gun ban went viral online.
During an interview on Fox and Friends on Monday the former US Marine discussed Senator Feinstein’s desire to ban 120 specific firearms, the Gateway Pundit notes. The gun control measures the Senator wants to become law include the banning of specific handguns, shotguns, rifles, and semiautomatic weapons.
Cpl. Joshua Boston also noted during the morning gun control interview that “anti-gun leftists” have called for his death in the wake of the viral letter. Boston had this to say during the interview:
“The idea that the rights of existing gun owners is strictly limited to hunting and sporting purposes is just absurd and has no basis in the Bill of Rights.”
Although Boston noted that he has largely received positive support after writing the “No Ma’am” letter to Dianne Feinstein, he has also garnered disturbing calls for his death, the Biz Pac Review notes. According to the former Marine’s statements on Fox News, there have been calls for his death because he is a member of the National Rifle Associaton, also referred to as the NRA.
Cpl. Joshua Boston was reportedly deployed to Afghanistan in 2004 and 2005. The former Marine’s “No Ma’am” letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein reads:
“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.”
