When U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she would introduce legislation to place a ban on assault weapons, former U.S. Marine Cpl. Joshua Boston did not sit idly by. Instead he penned an open letter to the Senator that has gone viral gaining mass attention.

In response to Boston’s letter, Feinstein released this statement:...

I applaud this young man for taking a stand and being courageous enough to not only write the letter, but also to speak out in defense of doing it. God bless him - and keep him safe from the whackos who are threatening him.

“Senator Feinstein respects Cpl. Boston’s service. She has heard from thousands of people — including many gun owners — who support her plan to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of assault weapons and large capacity magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds. As Senator Feinstein has said, the legislation will be carefully focused to protect the rights of existing gun owners by exempting hundreds of weapons used for hunting and sporting purposes.”

Great idea, threaten an armed Marine. What could go wrong?

Just noise from little mama boy's sitting in their parents basement writing anonymously because they don't have the kahuna’s to ever act out their bellicose penmanship.... This shouldn't scare a Cub Scout, forget about it scaring a combat veteran Marine....

Ok, but will it protect the right of the people to ensure the security of a free state? The second amendment is not about sports or hunting. She knows that, right?

You really need to learn how to use apostrophes. You're making an ass of yourself.

weapon: noun 1. any instrument or device for use in attack or defense in combat, fighting, or war, such as a sword, rifle, or cannon.

Since when does hunting/sporting require a weapon?

Of course. That’s why she opposes it.

Feinstein, a lying liberal leftist - what's new? As for death treats from a pimple faced computer geek leftist living in their mom's basements or under the stairs, bring it. It is ironic that some morons are threatening with bodily harm someone who disagrees on their gun policies - what asinine freaks!

Where - specifically - does it say in the Bill of Rights that the right to bear arms pertains only to "hunting"?

“the legislation will be carefully focused to protect the rights of existing gun owners by exempting hundreds of weapons used for hunting and sporting purposes.”

Those aren’t the main purposes of the second amendment. The absolute main purpose is to allow citizens protection against totalitarianism. I would bet that most gun owners don’t hunt, and would not say they only own a gun for ‘sport’. They have them for protection.

Probably poor and slow typist like myself and don’t always do a good job of editing. We should probably take a typing course and a refresher in grammer before posting again. I don’t know whether I should be relieved or distressed you don’t have us zotted.

Ah, the infamous "hunting and sporting purposes" clause of the 2nd amendment. Liberals always love to cite that clause.

You aren't familiar with the "hunting and sporting purposes" clause of the 2nd amendment? You might need to be educated in a quality public school in the People's Republik of Kalifornia.

The always use the excuse that the founding fathers couldn't forsee the types of weapons we have today.

The also couldn't forsee the internet, facebook, social media and the media in general.

The did however forsee politicians who have forgotten who owns this country.

We provide your freedom ! You work for us. We are not your peasants !

We will hang you from the nearest lamp pole if it becomes necessary to make that clear to you !

Death threats from the left are no concern. They love to talk violence, but always - always - want someone else to carry it out for them, and at the first sign of resistance, are the first to cut and run, er, I mean redeploy.

yeah.....lemme know how that one works out....

From The Dark Night (Batman), Morgan Freeman's character... “Let me get this straight. You think that your client, one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in the world, is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands; and your plan, is to blackmail this person? ............... Good luck.”

I have only run afoul of a Marine once (it was a complete accidental misunderstanding, I respect and am so thankful for the Marines and other defense forces)...

anyway, I learned, in less than 10 seconds, NOT to mess with a Marine!

ha!

It would be fun, though, to track down one of these liberal killer badasses, and in the middle of the night while he’s gnawing on pizza crusts and playing on his computer, The door is smashed open and four MIB immediately secure the room. Then a marine walks in with two Kabars in his hands, tosses one to the blubbering technogeek as the YouTube cameras start to roll.

“Let’s dance.”

This could be the first step in turning the USA into a land of serfs and peasants as the elites and oligarchs disarm the citizenry.

It is funny (not haha funny) how the mass media have hyped the so called “threats” to the Journal News that published the names of NY permit owning citizens, but they have said nothing about these wacko anti-gun nuts threatening this Marine. I would not be surprised if this newspaper didn’t send themselves threatening email to purposely make gun owners appear as a problem.
