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.

Respectfully Submitted,
Joshua Boston
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
2004-2012

This Marine is why I say right now, as of 2013, it would be impossible for the govt to confiscate guns.

I spent nine years in the military and know the type. He is not alone.

Cpl Boston.

  As a veteran,  one would expect you to understand the brutality of war. You obviously have never seen real war.

The government doesn't want your hand gun, but it doesn't want AR-15 in the hands of wackos ..It doesn't want you to own and arsenal of hand grenades either.. Where do we draw the line ?

Just imagine for a moment the shooter at Sandy Hook Elementary School lobbing a grenade in every classroom from outside the school.

Would a real soldier just stand by and do nothing after seeing 20 little children slaughtered ?

Not me.

Well, that's fine & he probably does deserve better than most of the politicians these days. But if a law or laws are made to where he has to give up the weapons declared illegal (highly unlikely), then he can choose to either follow the law or suffer the consequences like anyone else.

Where did he say he would stand by and do nothing?

I'm pretty sure hand granades are already illegal Don. As a matter of fact I think its even hard to get M-60's or M-80s.

I agree with you 100% here...

I feel that trained military that know how to used the weapons the best earned some special respect...

you put the gun in his hands and tell him to put his life on the line for his country and then you turn around that take the same gun out of his hands when he comes home...

there is just something not right there...

this is also why I think that the talking point about "criminals" wont give up their guns but "good guys" like this is just ignorant... 

I agree that it is impossible to confiscate guns and this is the ignorance of liberals who actually promote the outcome of an increase in gun purchases by talking bans and confiscation... 
This is the opposite of what they want and weapons companies and distributors are cashing in big time...

liberals should look at trying to freeze the market or regulate future sales... and basically take a stand point of "lets not make this worse"...

but the conservative media is doing its best to sensationalize it also

The government doesn't want your hand gun, but it doesn't want AR-15 in the hands of wackos

President Obama, Senator Diane Feinstein, and Mayor Corey Booker are all on record saying they want to ban handguns.

Three promient Democrats.

Further, nothing, not one single thing, the White House is talking about would have stopped the Aurora or Newton murders. Those nuts did not obtain their weapons by a private sale and nothing they are proposing would keep AR-15's "out of the hands of wacos"

Which is whey they are trying to ban AR-15's.

AR-15's and other "assault rifles" aren't the problem but that won't stop liberals from backtracking on that argument because they have already started it.

I've said numerous times the only advantage any rifle will have over a pistol is if you are shooting at a target from far away like a sniper, ie Oswald, Whitman, DC Sniper

I'm not rationalizing or "promoting" what any of those wackos did (VA Tech, Tucson, Aurora, Sandy Hook) so don't get the wrong impression but if you one of these nuts looking to do damage and are going into a crowded area (public square, movie theatre, classroom) it is much easier to maneuver with a pistol/pistols then it is with a rifle/rifles.

Liberals can't say ban pistols (at least most of them) because that sounds over the top so they say ban assault rifles. If one was to look back over the mass shootings the last couple of years you will find most of the damage was done by the pistols.

If a bill is ever passed banning assault rifles I think most conservatives, including me, knows it won't stop there.

Canosoup..Democrats do NOT want to ban hand guns certain rifles, or even shotguns. They/we are trying to protect all school children. Your children, my grandchildren, that's all.

You guys can go hunting for your little squrriels, or deer, or whatever, with these guns. But you don't need a AR-15 assualt weapon or hand grenades to kill them. Nor a 30 bullet cartridge/magazine. It is asinine.

Not only that, it's selfish to stand your ground on this matter while school children are being slaughtered every week. This is the reason I will never speak with Ricky again.

 He could care less about the children and cares about no one else but himself and the 2nd amendment, which he obviously doesn't understand because the words well REGULATED militia is in the first sentence.

You can say the same thing about me. I haven't witnessed any children being slaughtered with my own eyes.

Yet if presented the chance I would do what I could.

Enacting more obsolete gun laws is the same as trying to hold back the tide with a bulldozer.

Well at least I do not use dead children to further my political agenda you Frigging Ghoul.  

And Democrats do want to ban handguns you stupid A$$. 
Most pistols are safe, but handguns have the ability to receive high capacity magazines therefore would be covered in Feinstein's ban, most every law maker and liberal pundit is against semi automatic anything, that can recieve a magazine,  which eliminates everything except for a 6 shooter type pistol, a breach action shotgun (because pump action shotguns can receive a magazine, and a bolt action rifle.  
Thanks for proving that you have no idea what is going on.  

Grenades are illegal because they are a mass casualty weapon.  I endorse this ban.  I think that is a good idea.  Comparing a semi automatic AR-15 to a grenade is ridiculous.

The numbers don't lie.  rifles like AR-15s are only used in 3.5% of crimes.  Pistols are used in the great majority,  of course law makers would go for the 3.5% against conceivably half or more. 

AR-15 is targeted because it is politically possible.  

As they use the AR15 to demagogue the issue, using poor children and their families as political cover, exploiting tragedy like only they can,  they will go for the handguns, and most other firearms.

don juan. What responsibility does HE have to stop the slaughter of innocent children?

Its my understanding that the shooter didn't use his semi automatic rifle in the shooting.

Do you know what it means to overreact? Do you know why its a waste of energy to try and hold back tidal waters without reasonable means?

Why are you so stuck on the tool of the massacre than the perp?

Have you had any tests done for Alzheimers?

What I have never been able to comprehend is if the proposed ban goes through how does it stop the next wack job from mowing into another school, shopping mall, public place etc.?
