Still and all…

Seth’s interim post hit the nail right on the head, reflecting all our thoughts here at Hard Astarboard.

On the same token, we all agree on one thing, and that is that of all the PACs and PAC oriented organizations purporting to fight for our rights, the single one we can always count on to keep their nose to the grindstone and remain ever vigilant on our behalf is the National Rifle Association.

To that end, whatever else happens in the red light district of politics, we will not neglect to remind readers of the importance of our Second Amendment rights.

That said, a letter that’s making the rounds, from an eight year United States Marine to Senator Dianne Feinstein regarding that leftie legislator’s war on American gun ownership, appears at The Blaze.

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
United States Marine Corps

Those are our sentiments, exactly….

    I’m prepared to bet the Senator won’t respond, and that the Cpl is now on the FBI’s “watch list.”

  2. Mrs Wolf Says:

    Gray Monk

    I concur, where Feinstein’s replying is concerned, she could not possibly acknowledge the email without also acknowledging Cpl. Boston’s accuracy in defining the relationship (as it is supposed to be) between a U.S. citizen and a member of Congress, unless she redefined it altogether, which would indicate to one and all that she does not grasp the parameters of her job.

    A liberal who does not grasp the parameters of her job, fancy that!

    It also wouldn’t surprise me if she did arrange for the corporal’s name to find its way onto a watch list, given the nature of the Obama government.

    If he is still serving on active duty, they can really cause him problems.

    All us ex-military are entitled to our opinons , I guess.

  4. Mrs Wolf Says:


    Certainly, General McChrystal is entitled to his opinion, but his justification seems as flawed as that of many liberals; For a military man who certainly knows his weapons, he places the same potential for blame on an inanimate object without attributing the reality that it takes a human being with “issues” to abuse that object.

    We have a fraction of a fraction of such people among the population as a whole who choose to commit that abuse, and most of these own the weapons illegally.

    Which brings us back to the fact that responsible, legal gun owners are not the perpetrators of the tragic acts we’ve seen at some of our (unprotected) schools and other places.

    And I wonder how McChrystal would explain the lower crime statistics in states that do not oppress their gun owners with overregulation versus states that do.
