Regarding Joshua Boston the man that sent Feinstein that letter - I think he's a misogynist


... and he must think that his manhood is being threatened.

I've bolded the parts below that I believe support my theory.


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

1. Maybe. Maybe not

But one thing is clear. If a law is made he WILL comply with it or face the consequences. You don't get to be exempted because you were/are a Marine.

5. LOL What was your first clue?

Seriously, thanks for your post. You do make an important point -- it's just that it smacked me between the eyes on first read. I'm glad you did an OP on it.

7. On a thread about this yesterday, there were several DUers cheering him on--

saying they admired him and supported him. Seeing that was shocking, but of course, maybe those DUers aren't DUers any longer...

9. "He belongs in jail". Why?

I may not agree with this man. In fact I watched him on CNN tonight and don't agree with him on a couple of points. But your post makes me nauseous.

Yet I was reminded how in 2009 Department of Homeland Security had issued a study or something which targeted our own veterans from Middle East assignments as potential 'terrorists'.

Let's consider. In the late 1980s-1990s the gov let the globalist industrialist bankers and corporations outsource nearly all low skilled jobs. So, millions of American high school graduates face futures with no possibilities of state funded educations or entrance level jobs paying anything more than minimum wage. Energetic smart young people, male or female, don't want to be stuck in the service industry. Many young Americans responded to the military recruitment commercials which promised them a future including educations if they served a stint fighting the evil Islamists who attacked us on 9/11/2001.

This guy you're trashing is among them. Are you grateful? No, you're spiteful and you're hateful, to quote Randy Newman's song 'Political Science'. You think you're better than him but you're wrong, to quote my friend Randy.

10. if he refuses to lawfully register a deadly weapon

he is a criminal. Criminals belong in jail. Serving in the military is indeed something to be honored, but it does not give someone a pass for breaking the law.

11. so is your suggestion that the law should not apply to those in the military?

That they should be able to pick and choose which ones they want to follow, that they have a level of citizenship that exempts them from the laws the rest of us have to follow?

12. Boston gave his opinion on proposed legislation

This veteran did not refuse to obey any existing laws.

It's his right as a citizen to give an opinion about proposed legislation. If he later breaks any laws, that's another matter.

14. of course he has every right to give his opinion

but the letter says he will refuse to register his guns. He is expressing intent to violate the law. If he does, then he belongs in jail. That was my point. I assumed he could be taken at his word.

"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." Then there is this choice bit: " I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one."

15. Does she carry a gun and proposes restricting that option for others?

I saw Boston on Piers Morgan.

The 'law' you are talking about isn't a law until enacted. So Boston isn't a criminal.

16. I know that

Good god. Isn't that obvious? This is getting absurd. While I understand how you may not have understood my meaning in my first post, I made myself quite clear in my second.

I have no idea if Feinstein has a gun, but it's not relevant to the discussion. If she has one, I'm sure it's registered. She is from the Bay Area. The guy is all over the map. Firstly, the federal government is only going to be able to control gun commerce, the role of guns in federal spaces, and crossing state lines. Requiring registration of existing guns would fall to states and municipalities. And no one is talking about taking away Rambo's guns. The law would prohibit the sale of new assault weapons and extended clips. Must we really indulge the paranoia of unhinged right wingers?

No, I didn't watch CNN tonight. I was working. So I know nothing about this guy other than the letter. There are certainly tens of thousands just like him though. There is nothing unique about paranoia and irrational thinking.

If you want to fret about poor gun owners, go to the gungeon. You'll be well received there.
