Former Marine Joshua Boston Claims Gun Control Activists Are Calling For His Death

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.”

    I absolutely agree with Joshua Boston. I too, shall not disarm to satisfy Herr Feinstein. Its ok for her to carry concealed and also enjoy an armed security detail yet We The People shall have our birthright stripped by misinformed gun grabbers.

    By the way…i also served in the US Military. And, swore an oath, which still stands, to DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC. Sen.Feinstein you are walking a very fine line. I respect your service in government but, it is not your duty to say what I can and cannot possess. You cannot rewrite the second amendment. The right to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED…This includes you.

    The people calling for his death… communists. He's practicing his First Amendment Right speaking of our Second Amendment Right and the F'd up media and our F'd up government… well… you get the point. Thank God for people like Cpl. Boston. He truly is an AMERICAN HERO! We need many more like him.

    I have a very good friend stationed at Ft Benning Georgia who has spoken with some TRUSTED troops under his command that are prepared to disobey any and all unlawful orders to march against or disarm law abiding American citizens. Always remember. ..an unconstitutional law is, in fact, no law at all.

    Funny fact, most deaths that occur in the world are NOT caused by firearms of any sort. Instead they are caused by a much more familiar object, it has 4 wheels and an engine… So where are Vehicle control freaks? This is ridiculous, they are trying to get rid of something that they don't understand and fear, sounds to me the darkages are coming back!
