A letter from a former Marine Corporal, Joshua Boston, has gone viral on the Internet. When I was done reading it, I was absolutely speechless—which to anyone that knows me is a miracle in itself. I sat with tears in my eyes thanking God that we have such men in this country. They have stood in places and fought and died, where you and I would probably never want to go and visit, let alone live there. This young Corporal exhibited maturity way beyond his years. He spoke out to California Senator, Dianne Feinstein, the queen of anti-gun legislation—even though she, herself, carries! No hypocrisy there. Joshua Boston said what needed to be said to these bubble heads in Washington D.C.

Senators, Congressmen, and Mr President, you all work for us! As startling as that statement is, it is true! Somehow the thinking got turned around in this country and the Washington D.C. power machine, started usurping the powers that were by the Constitution , specifically granted to the states. Money was suddenly being taken from all producers in this country and given to those who simply wanted to sit on their butts and contribute nothing. In 2008, the Progressives managed to elect a pathological liar as the President of the United States. Barack Hussein Obama. A man who cannot make decisions without a handful of women whispering in his ear.
Obama has flagrantly refused to enforce American law. He has broken American law by trying to hide violations of that law under such things as “executive privilege.” He has promised to violate the Second Amendment rights of all legitimate gun owners aided by his anti-gun Pit Bull, Senator Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein apparently has a CCW permit because she does carry a firearm; she just doesn’t want the average American to be able to do it. The Progressives want to turn America into a “gun free zone” so that the madmen in this country can rack up bigger scores. I just wonder who they will blame when they find out that their idiotic idea didn’t work. Forgive me ….I digress.
The only legal way for Obama, and his Progressive followers to legitimately confiscate America’s guns is to amend the Constitution, by getting 2/3 of each house of Congress to pass an amendment, then getting 3/4 of the 50 states to ratify it. Any other method of trying to outlaw weapons in unconstitutional, and would end up starting a very bloody civil war. If Obama attempts to put through anymore restrictive gun laws, then every person who owns a gun, thought about owning a gun, or is concerned about what other freedoms they are about to lose needs to get on the phone and ask their Congressman, or Senator if they like being in politics.
What I’m trying to say is this: Any law, rule, or regulation that restricts sane, normal citizens from obtaining a firearm is unconstitutional, and therefore illegal!! The Second Amendment was put into the Constitution to prevent exactly what Obama and his leftist minions are attempting to do right now, usurp all governmental powers unto themselves. Our Forefathers had to fight England, and a despotic monarch to allow this country to flourish. I believe that there are still enough patriots left in this country to do it once again if it becomes necessary.

No one, not even the President of the United States is above the law in this country. We are a nation of laws, not men, and it would do the Progressives well to remember that. 2013 is the beginning of a new year, and a chance for us to take back America from the redistributionist, who somehow managed to gain control of a country he hates. If you don’t like being a free citizen of the greatest country the world has ever seen, then just keep allowing Obama and his corrupt thugs to continue their pursuit of no accountability and you will find yourself a “subject” soon enough.
Maybe it is time for everyone in America to read the letter that former Marine Corporal Joshua Boston wrote to Senator Dianne Feinstein about gun control. I believe that that young man speaks for all of law abiding gun owners. It’s worth your time, believe me.
