Viral Letter: Marine Tells Would-Be Gun Grabber Dianne Feinstein 'No Ma'am'

Above is a 1995 video of Senator Feinstein saying just exactly what she would do if she had the political authority and means to do so: confiscate all firearms from every citizen in America.
A possibly intoxicated Dianne Feinstein said to an interviewer in 1995: “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, Mr. and Mrs. America turn them all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”
Much like with Obamacare, when the president publicly supported the individual mandate, after earlier confessing that his actual goal was the more radical single-payer, Senator Dianne Feinstein has proposed a gun control bill that she believes has some politically feasible elements; and of course, some radical filler to jettison in the interest of appearing bipartisan, if and when the bill meets resistance.
And it has. A letter from Joshua Boston, apparently a recently discharged U.S. Marine, has caused a stir in social media and has even hit big news outlets like CNN and FoxNews. It confronts Senator Dianne Feinstein on her recent call for stricter gun control laws in the aftermath of the terrifying Newtown shooting.
The law proposed by Senator Feinstein would strengthen the 1994 “Assault Weapons” ban (expired), outlaw certain rifles and handguns, and restrict “high capacity” magazines, in addition to compulsory gun registration under the National Firearms Act.
Needless to say, a lot of these restrictions can be worked around, and criminals will not abide by the law. Law-abiding citizens, on the other hand, would be made more vulnerable, due to the loss of a deterrent for such crimes as home invasion.
FoxNation republished the former Marine’s letter, which was originally posted on CNN’s iReport. It is re-posted in its entirety below:
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
