Marine Who Penned Scathing Letter to Sen. Feinstein Now Says He’s Getting Death Threats (Video)

Cpl. Joshua Boston, the U.S. Marine who wrote a scathing letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) over proposed new gun control legislation was on FOX and Friends this morning. Feinstein wants to outlaw 120 specifically-named firearms including certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns.

Joshua Boston told FOX and Friends that Feinstein’s defense of her gun banning proposal is absurd.

“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.”

Boston also said we need to look at the gun free zone laws that leave people defenseless. At the end of the interview Joshua Boston admitted that anti-gun leftists are calling for his death since his letter went viral.

    Libs inadvertently make the best argument against gun control. When they threaten to kill someone, that is the most pursuasive argument for self-defense by any means that there is.

    Communists have been calling us all out since the Coronation of the illegal usurper. They feel empowered and heard the words fundamentally transform America as the dog whistle for getting rid of their political opponents.

    The truly think once the Uncivil war starts they will win with the help of FEMA, DHS, TSA and other totalitarians. They want it t start as soon as possible so they can build their social utopia. Conservatives are impeding that people’s paradise.

    They’re egging you all on – they truly want the war amongst Americans.

    Some of us at trying to get through life without a blemish on our soul – meaning, we don’t want to kill anyone, unless it’s self-defense, but to the God-less communist atheists they don’t have the same thoughts about God’s plan nor desire to learn it.

    They’re getting impatient and want the war to start – and that’s apparent by the unrelenting button pushing they continue on a day to day basis.

    Sooner or later they’re gonna get what they really never expected.

    As usual–good comment Falcon. Can you believe how much this country has changed in just a couple of months. The Obamaites want to take guns away–sure they’ll say it’s just limiting a few but that is always how it starts. (2nd amendment has nothing to do with limitations which is why the left hates it.) Again, sadly, many Americans no longer know any history and the lessons that come from it.

    The first time I heard Obama open his mouth I knew he was a communist. I couldn’t believe my ears. I was truly shocked that an open communist was running for pResident. I knew we were done that road, but didn’t think that someone could run against the foundations of America and win. Obama is someone so anti-American, so diametrically opposed to all things this country has made great.

    I know there will be some who will say – he hid it with lies. I say – non-sense, he was open about who he was and is. He didn’t hid anything and many people think communism is nouveau, they are the neo-marxists.

    I’m in the prime of my life, supposed to be enjoying America and all it stands for – instead I’m crying in my heart for the loss of this great land. There will *possibly* be generations that will never know the America you and I loved.

Why aren’t our Politicians stopping the Illegal’s from taking American Jobs.Why aren’t the Liberals complaining about the murders of 25 Americans a day .This man is serving our Country and has the Right to belittle this worthless Politician. She is a typical worthless Bimbo Politician we have in America today. The Liberals in America better wake up to the real world out there. Our Politicians are selling America out and they are going to suffer everything the Conservative Americans are going to suffer when all He– breaks loose .

    The biggest criminal enterprise in the US appears to be obama’s own Fast & Furious gun-running scandal, but he has been successful in keeping that out of the news.

    Unfortunately, much of the leadership live on base, thus their families are safe. The D.C. based higher ups are for the most part political animals and will go with the prevailing winds. The Marines may be our best hope, the rest well who knows. The officer ranks are filled with collage educated Commies, and enlisted have their own families to worry about who are also conveniently housed on base, I suspect by design.

    Joshua Boston is a good man. He has fought for our freedom. Time for the elitists to take a moment and think about that. He doesn’t want America’s freedoms taken away. This includes are right to own guns. He has fought on the battlefield to protect us and now it seems he has to fight to protect himself and others but with what, pencil, fist, kicks? If God forbid another parent is so loose with their parenting like Lanza’s mother was with him, we will be defenseless.

    It is Joshua’s right and ours to protect ourselves and others from a mentally disturbed or radical who wishes harm. We won’t go down without a fight to protect ourselves and the innocent others. If one person in Sandy Hook had a gun, possibly things would have been a bit different. They were defenseless and this seems to be what Feinstein is saying.

    Ten people killed is okay but more than 10 isn’t, clip wise according to Feinstein. And Ms. Feinstein carry a pistol in her purse for those who don’t know. What Hypocrites and I will stand toe to toe and many others will with Joshua. There will never be enough of them to take our guns from us.

    Think about that. The president and vice president of the United States are urging immediate action on gun control, pre-empting all debate about the measures’ constitutionality; and their justification for this urgent, anti-constitutional action is that “the American public has a short memory.” In other words, this is not a real crisis (i.e., an ongoing threat), and the public will soon realize that, and carry on with life as usual; therefore, we must act before that happens.

    Here is Rucker’s account of the administration’s intentions:

    A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

    As for where the federal government would get the authority to require “universal background checks,” monitor the “movement” of private property, impose “stronger” mental health checks (on whom?), or punish private citizens for “giving” guns to minors (teaching your son to shoot?), these are precisely the kinds of questions for which the normal process of legitimate government would be in order — deliberate, debate, reason. But the administration is unwilling to accept the likely outcome of such a process, and therefore wishes to foist its illiberal ideas on the public without open discussion. We all know the pattern now: in place of the deliberative process designed to protect the public from unjust government, Obama, Feinstein, et al will rush through legislation and executive orders, and then “lead a public relations offensive to generate public support.”

    There is a striking dissonance between the alleged need to act immediately, and the nature of the measures proposed. Rucker repeatedly tells us the government’s response will be “comprehensive”; Biden’s working group has “expanded its focus” to areas in which the president may act without congressional support, such as “changes to federal mental-health programs”; the administration is “quietly talking with a diverse array of interest groups”; they are “developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association,” such as “rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses” (i.e., crony capitalism in the name of restricting gun sales); their proposals constitute a “deeper exploration than just the assault-weapons ban”; and the discussions include the secretaries of Homeland Security, Education, and Health and Human Services.

    The only real crisis at play here is a crisis of liberty; the U.S. federal government has become unmoored from any notion of legitimate representative government, and its illegitimate practices have become broadly acceptable to the American public. Corrective measures are certainly in order, but these will not come from the government. They will come, if they come, from the people.

    Here, from the Washington Post article, is the sensibility now governing America’s public policy, in a nutshell:

    “As we get involved in these ad nauseam debates over the Second Amendment, our children are still at risk,” said Jon Adler, national president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association. “Debating is not the action verb we need to protect our children.”

    Actually, Mr. Adler, it is. Debating — discussing the appropriateness of proposed policy in light of the nation’s interests and fundamental principles — is what legitimate governments do, as long as they wish to represent the will, rather than exploit the ignorance and fear, of the people.

    While we’re at it, Americans might like to consider a few other action verbs pertinent to this moment, and to “protecting their children”: resisting, debunking, teaching, thinking, and fighting.

    Re: Gun Control Legislation

    When Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Joe Manchin (D-WV), and certain Democrats in the
    House of Representatives, promise to push for more gun control, they overlook four important words: “shall not be infringed.”
    These words form an integral phrase in the 2nd Amendment, and speak to our Founders’ intent that the U.S. government not “infringe” on the peoples’ God-given right to keep and bear arms.

    Consider the text of the 2nd Amendment: “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms
    shall not be infringed”.

    The 2nd Amendment does not create a right nor does it confer one. Rather, it hedges in a right with which we were “endowed by [our] Creator.” When we understand this, it’s easy to see that our Founders put this amendment in place to tell the government that the right to keep and bear arms is sacrosanct.

    With Democrats pushing their gun control schemes during the past week — they must understand that they are doing exactly what our Founders said they have no power to do. They are infringing on a right that the Bill of Rights explicitly lists as off limits to inference by the federal government. Our Founders recognized the right to keep and bear arms as essential and God-given. Because of this, they hedged in this right by telling the government it “shall not be infringed.”

    This weekend the President of the United States declared war on legitimate gun owners who have the protection of the U.S. Constitution under their Second Amendment rights. Barack Obama informed the host of Meet the Press on the December 27th show and its viewing audience that he would use the full authority and “full weight” of the presidential arsenal of his office to unleash the dogs of war against legal gun owners.

    The threat is real, because if one considers the nature of Obama’s cavalier attitude toward upholding or even recognizing the legitimacy of the authority of the U.S. Constitution, he has little regard for it. He has ignored the 10th Amendment regarding state’s rights, the Second Amendment regarding gun rights, and even laws passed by congress, like the Defense of Marriage Act. His presidency has been a renegade take-over and emasculation of the very constitution he swore to uphold.

    The course of action is clear for the Congress of the United States: the President of the United States has decided to pursue a direction that even the U.S. Supreme Court in 2008 and 2010 cases, has concluded is legally without merit.

    The president believes through his actions that the Second Amendment can be marginalized, and with the full consent of a weakened congress, that gives in to his pressure as it did on January 1st with the Fiscal Cliff bill.

    What is left to wonder for Americans to weigh about the need for impeachment proceedings as guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. There is nothing left to debate, to discuss, to bargain or barter over. An assault on freedom and the constitution regarding gun rights is not open for negotiation or for misinterpretation.

    Impeachment hearings are a serious step for any congress to consider, and it takes a matter which is defined by the U.S. Constitution as impeachable offenses for judiciary hearings to be undertaken by the House of Representatives.

    Three sitting presidents have been investigated by congress, which had impeachment charges brought against them, beginning with President Andrew Johnson in 1867, Richard Nixon in 1974, and Bill Clinton in 1998. In each of the cases, the three presidents attempted to thwart either the will of the legislative branch, lied to the legislative branch or mislead the legislative branch in open and contemptible violation of the law.

    Yet, in each case there was not an attempt to openly circumvent the constitutional authority of congress or eliminate constitutional protections guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, as Obama has engaged in. This sitting president has engaged in such actions as defined by the Constitution’s framers as well as those states that approved this essential American document.

    The impeachment investigation by congress is a critical and necessary first step:
    “Those who adopted the Constitution viewed impeachment as a remedy for usurpation or abuse of power or serious breach of trust. …Thus, the impeachment power of the House reaches “those who behave amiss, or betray their public trust,” according to the Washington Post’s “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment”.

    The betrayal of the public trust is a key component that elevates Obama’s conduct, both past and present, to this impeachment threshold. By engaging in continuing dismissive conduct regarding selective enforcement of the laws of the United States he bears congressional investigation. He has therefore “betrayed the public trust”, by these
    actions that the framers of the U.S. Constitution felt warranted impeachment of the nation’s highest constitutional officer.

    “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” ~ Article II,Section 4 of the United States Constitution

    Let the first action of the new congress be one which serves notice on the re-elected president, that due to high crimes and misdemeanors you are so charged with Impeachment!

    You people in the District of Corruption need to wake up and realize that We The People have had enough of you the tyrants. Your constant assault on our Liberties and Freedoms as defined by the Bill of Rights is not transmutable but finite.
    Your direct defiance of your oath of office by signing legislation like NDAA 2012 + 2013, the 2 debt ceiling increases, the refusal to investigate Fast & Furious, Benghazi, stimulus 1 & 2, QE1 2 3 3.5, et.al. I would run out of room just listing the criminal actions that have been committed that you and your colleagues have turned a blind eye to.

    You have spent me, my children and now my grandchildren into poverty and you come back for more. You and your cohorts gall is astounding!

    And now the communist side of this coin wants to use the actions of a deranged lunatic created by their secular progressive humanist agenda to take my only defense against their miscreant bastard offspring that will take to the streets very shortly when this government succeeds in crashing this economy. And that is why they want them!

    I swore this oath many years ago and I have never violated it:
    “I, Keith Westbrook, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties
    of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”

    Other than my new Congressman none of you can attest to that.

    Tell the rest of your comrades we will not be: 1916 RUSSIA, 1932 GERMANY, 1946 CHINA, 1955 N. KOREA,1976 CAMBODIA, etc.

    Please feel free (I INSIST) in passing this along with the following sentiment on the subject:

    Mr. Boston is not Cpl Boston. He is not currently serving as a Marine or a Marine Reservist as far as I can tell. His points are valid, whether he’s serving now or not, but the fact that he is not serving gives him some leeway that a serving Marine might not have.
    There’s a quandary here. There’s a tradition of “Once a Marine, always a Marine”, which would include Lee Harvey Oswald. Service in the USMC is something to cherish and it builds a bond between current Marines and those who have also served — but the fact is, Mr. Boston is not actually a Marine at this time.

    Well, Cpl. Joshua Boston shouldn’t worry that much if he really cared about dead threats sent to him because Socialist Commie will always say and not do it unless a group of them are Barack Hussein Obama and other Socialist Democrat supporters. If it happens Civil War and Economy Collapse happen the Militia know what to do to restore America right Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness back to where it belong and lock up Barack Hussein Obama and other Socialist Democrat in Prison for rigging the election 2008-2012.

  • The generals might side with the lib-communists, but the rank and file would be more likely to side with their families and friends, if it came to civil war.
    I am certain that obama and his communist minions don`t want to declare marshal law. The majority of the military are conservative, and I am sure that many are unhappy with the way they were treated in this last election.
    Both officer and enlisted have taken an oath to defend the constitution and the country. All are high school grads with college education, which means they are not stupid. They would have to choose between family and friends and the government. I feel most would choose the people above the government. The government does not represent the constitution now, which means the military would be at odds with the government, remember they are citizen soldiers. So I am not sure if it would be the civilians joining the military or the military joining the civilians if it came to that?
    The military would choose to defend the people first, as they are in the end the government. Remember this ” government of the people, by the people, and for the people”. As soldiers they are still the people(citizen soldiers).

  • Obvious questions:

    If such a tiny proportion of gun-crime is committed with rifles, much less sporter / semi-automatic rifles, why the Leftist drive to go specifically after a statistically-safe
    gun?

    If the crime is going down (and it has been, see link below), why the panic?

    If the vast majority of all mass public shootings are taking place in Gun Free Zones, how is creating more Gun Free Zones going to make the public any safer?

    Why do those calling for gun control enjoy armed protection, such as the 11 or 12 armed guards protecting Obama, Biden’s and Dick Gregory’s kids, while denying protection to our children?

    If each elected official has sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution, how can they adopt a position that directly attacks the rights of Citizens under the US Constitution and not be in violation of their oaths?

    Gun control has always preceded tyranny.

    What plans do those calling for Gun Control have for us, IF citizens are stripped of the means to defend themselves?

  • A.E. Thomas

    Mr. Boston is a true American patriot who understands the true purpose of the 2nd amendment. Give that man a medal! Here’s my take for what it’s worth. The 2nd amendment was NOT about “hunting.” Got that libatards. Its very important that you GET that. In fact, it is crucial that you GET THAT. The 2nd amendment was written in 1776. 1776. Now you tell me…..who did NOT hunt in 1776? And so the 2nd amendment was very, very carefully worded. Why? Because the Founding Fathers were in the midst of fighting a war against a TYRANNICAL government. The British attempt to confiscate guns from the colonists is what STARTED the American Revolution: the 1774 import ban on firearms and gunpowder; the 1774-75 confiscations of firearms and gunpowder; and the use of violence to effectuate the confiscations. It was these events that changed a situation of political tension into a shooting war. Each of these British abuses provides insights into the scope of the modern Second Amendment. Don’t believe me? Go look it up, I’ll wait. Got that part now? OK, so the term “…shall NOT BE INFRINGED.” That means ALL GUN LAWS are unconstitutional! In 1776, you could own cannons, war ships, the best muskets (more commonly know as GUNS) whatever you could afford. You think the framers of the constitution did NOT consider that? Of course they did! The Revolutionary War was not won with government military alone. In fact, the war would have been lost if that was the case. The war was won with common, run of the mill everyday American citizens WITH GUNS! Their OWN guns……and cannons and ships and ammo. Lots and lots of ammo. Our Founding Fathers KNEW the importance then and for the future of the RIGHT and were wise enough to provide the MEANS of the American people to DEFEND THEMSELVES against a tyrannical government. Including OUR OWN. Here’s a footnote to history for you: The Emperor of Japan during WW2, refused to invade mainland America. Why? Because as he stated, there would be a gun behind every blade of grass. While it may be true no one is trying to ban all guns…….YET. Thats not the way these people operate. No, they rob us of our liberties just a little at time, so as no one will really notice. And so I come to this conclusion: We do NOT need assault weapons to hunt. No, we need assault weapons to defend ourselves against ANY who would dictate our way of life or enslave us. That’s some other government or our own. Law abiding, Americans don’t need more gun laws. We are already keeping the laws. Your run of the mill criminal, pay NO MIND to any gun laws will so that MORE LAWS will NOT effect them either. They simple ignore them. You will always have insane people that do insane things. The nut job that murdered those precious children in Newtown, Conn….was NOT a law abiding citizen. In fact, he apparently had to commit an illegal act to get them. He killed his own Mother and took them…..ILLEGALLY! You may say if she didn’t have them, he couldn’t have gotten them. I disagree. If this guy KILLED and then stole from his Mother, I don’t see that he would have any problem killing someone else to get them. It’s that simple. My husband and I own assault weapons. We have 3 daughters (2 still under 18) who have all been trained to use them properly. We have owned them for many, many years and we have NEVER killed anyone along with the 90 million other American gun owners who also didn’t kill anyone. With certain legislative efforts by this regime it is painfully obvious to those of us who are awake, that there are those who do NOT understand the purpose of the 2nd amendment and would take ALL guns given the opportunity. Sadly, most of them are sitting in seats of authority on their asses in D.C., drawing a fat paycheck, getting rich and passing unconstitutional “laws” while America BURNS. Have you never heard of NDAA signed by this muslim-fraud? Look into it. Its a real eye-opener. Yes, I need assault weapons and NO, NOT for hunting. I need semi-automatic assault weapons because MY GOVERNMENT has fully automatic assault weapons! MOLON LABE

    AUSONIUS stated the case extremely well:

    The pure argument (which few have the guts to say and defend
    these days) for private weapon ownership was, and still is, so
    that a population can remain citizens and not subjects to tyrants.

    Run from it if you must, but this was, and still is, the truth. It is not
    about hunting, “sporting use”, or the like. Once you buy into these
    notions, you get boxed into a corner from which there is no escape.

    The argument for possessing modern weapons is simply that those
    are what you will face should tyrants wish to “compel” your compliance.

    We have an open marxist party which holds the Senate, the White
    House, and much of the courts. They are making their plans very clear.
    It will not stop with compelling you to purchase health insurance, eat
    “right”, drive eco-cars, practice their “approved” religions, and the like.

    Marxists in the 20th century murdered tens of millions of their own
    citizens who disagreed with them. Why would anyone believe the
    21st century marxist will operate any differently?

    I wake to a country that I do not recognize.

    Don’t worry Cpl. Boston you can handle a beating with fuzzy bunny slippers. That’s the only way the Feinsteins liberals would try and hurt you. Thank you for your service.

    Give me liberty or give me death. Thats a few words which i think few of us have the nuts
    to stand behind. DO YOU?
    Blood has not been shed on foreign soil for our rights to be abolished by those who disrespect those who whom paid the ultimate price. I am a Viet vet and I have this Marine’s
    back. HOW ABOUT YOU?

    Full auto for all ! plus explosive rounds like RPGs ! And why can’t the children of felons be able to sleep as safely as other kids with a father who is well armed to defend them ?

    I expect they plan to bore him to death. They are well equipped on that front.

    The 2nd Amendment is NOT about hunting animals. It gives us the right and ability to hunt down and shoot politicians that have decided that they do not have to listen to us. Sound like a Democrat you have heard lately?

  • a patriot is born

    We need to take a page from the lefts book and practice civil disobedience to any registration schemes, assault weapon bans and high cap magazine bans. Refuse to comply, tell them to go pound sand and call their bluff. If they try to enforce, unlike civil rights marchers and hippies, they’ll find out gun owners have teeth. Don’t make it easy for them to take our right. I wouldn’t give a mugger my gun, why would I give it to a politician, isn’t the same thing?

    #19, I have been saying for 5 years that “liberalism is the single biggest threat to this once great nation”. It is so sad, they are going to destroy it. I am afraid for my Grandkids.
