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.

    It is so refreshing to see young men like cpl. boston…..what the left doesnt understand is….these men and women are on our side….when it finally starts, which side are you going to be on??? This is the question all of us have to ask ourselves…..ARE YOU GOING TO STAND ON YOUR OWN 2 FEET, OR ARE YOU GOING TO DIE ON YOUR KNEES??????

    I for one, would like to know the military’s stance on a potential civil war. They would certainly be mobilized against the citizenry. With whom will they side? With family, friends and neighbors; or a government that hates freedom and would suppress and kill the people for the sake of control? Can any active military comment with an idea on whose side the military would fight?

    #22…i think the military leadership would side with the government, their careers seems to be all that matters to them. duty, honor, country seems to have fallen by the wayside.

    I’m willing to bet that NONE of those people calling for his death have the nads to directly carry such threats out…

    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.

    He’s a Marine. He knows what to do.

    Feinstein doesn’t seem to be living in the real world. She is more or less handing more weapons to the criminals while the innocent have nothing. She doesn’t care as much about hunting guns but that isn’t where Sandy Hooks go down, now is it.

    Libs share the same dual personalities of the islamists. “Death to America” the one says, “Death to the Man” the other says…which is which? Both are sick in the mind and spirit, obviously. Someone else said it well:
    “The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.”
    – Leo Tolstoy

    The anti-gun crowd are getting scarier than the criminals and mentally unstable. Oh wait, maybe they are one and the same.

    Be scared. One of the first things these evil politicians will do is to arm and release all the prison populations. Totalitarian governments love to do this at the first sign of unrest.

    What are they going to do, hang him or go for drawn and quartered? NONE of them, after all, believe in using guns!

    It’s this kind of absurd violent reactionary behavior that has blue-blooded Americans up in arms, in fear for their families, their safety, and their freedom! Leftists are hypocrites, almost across the board!

    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.
