When it comes to gun control, California's grand dame Senator Dianne Feinstein is a woman on a mission. On her official website, you can see a run-down of her proposed "new and improved" ban on "assault weapons" on her website. If you think it will only cover the AR-15-style weapons that have become the obsession of many on the left, you are wrong. It is far more expansive than the 1994 weapons ban which she authored, and which lapsed in 2004. Many who cherish their 2nd Amendment rights are stocking up on weapons worried where this will all lead. Gun manufacturers now have backlogs on weapons that gun owners believe will soon be banned. One U.S. Marine, Joshua Boston had these strong words for Sen. Feinstein:
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
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.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
