"I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve."

Marine combat veteran Josh Boston has penned a viral letter to Dem. Senator Diane Feinstein, who is introducing a bill to outlaw a whole new bunch of guns.

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
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
2004-2012

Amen. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a fundamental American right. It reflects the genuine relationship between Americans and our government.

We the People are sovereign,  and we will not be disarmed by our government.

    Poor old Josh just doesn't get that the solution to mass killings by northeastern lunatics is to ban guns in Spud, Idaho.

    You see, he's one of those fellows about whom Secretary of State Lurch said: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq."

    You see, accoprding to the Progressotard Eusocial Paradise Committee, Cpl. Boston's job is to shut up, serve the state, and do as he's told.

    BTW, I just got back from a naval procurement trip. I bought a dozen MOAB thermobaric bombs from a guy in Cornpone AL through the Gun Show Loophole.

      As long as you didn't buy a 10-MOAB magazine, you're legal.

  3. In 2011 there were 32,163 gun related deaths in the US, two-thirds of which were suicides. (gunpolicy.org)

    In 2011 there were 32,367 car accident related deaths in the US. (wikipedia.org)

    It seems to me that motor cars are as deadly as guns!

    1. Reasoned like a 4-year-old Pepe. Without turning this into a research project, I would guess that the average American’s exposure to automobiles is at least 100 times greater than their exposure to guns. That alone makes guns a hundred times more deadly than cars. As a matter of fact, the guns being debated are specifically designed to KILL PEOPLE.

      Translating KW (love god, ninja, Prince of Reason):

      "Dude, you're stupid. Let's make up some numbers and invent some cartoon-level risk analysis method to prove you're wrong IN CAPS. See how smart I am?"

      Wow. Cool.

    3. You're right, Pepe! So to reduce the death rate from cars we introduced mandatory safety features, driver testing, licensing with regular renewals, registration of all cars, periodic testing of cars, and very strict laws against using cars when impaired. These measures cut the death rate from cars by 2/3.

      All we're asking for is the same for guns. Judging by the success with cars, this could save 20,000 lives per year in the U.S.

      I'm glad you agree - thank you for support us.

      But sadly, Pepe, I think there are too many gun owners who feel 20,000 lives per year is just the price we all must pay for them to avoid the burden of paperwork.

    4. Anonymous - So if I understand your logic here, you are OK with us treating guns like autos. So, since as a licensed driver I am able to drive a car anywhere the car can go, under your rules if I have a gun owner's carry permit I should be able to carry a gun anywhere the gun can go. I have the training. I can pass any proficiency test you can throw at me, especially if it is as easy as the DPS driver's exam. So, you down with that? Pass the exam, carry anywhere?

  4. I know this is off topic but I must post it to shut up that low life pest that bachfiend is!

    "Surely one of the great mysteries of human life is how a single fertilized egg cell grows to an adult, with a brain sporting hundreds of billions of functional connections supporting abstract thought."

    1. Pepe,

      I made a resolution this year not to respond to any of your comments, but I'll make an exception. The human brain is believed (with no evidence to the contrary) to be the most complex structure in the Universe.

      How it works exactly is unclear. How it works, in extremely broad strokes, is understood to some degree. Functionally, it consists of a large number of modules working more or less independently, some of which present their output to the 'mind', which provides the illusion that the individual is completely in control of his actions.

      The brain works very well, but not perfectly. It can be fooled. How it develops is vaguely understood. The neuronal stem cells proliferate and differentiate to produce eventually 100 billion neurons in adults (many of the neurons formed die off because they're in the wrong place) with trillions of interconnections.

      The continuing process of neuroplasticity strengthens connections which are used and pares the ones that aren't, giving the eventual functional structure of the brain. And neuroplasticity continues in adult life, so adults can change or overcome deficits due to disease or injury.

      Neuroplasticity is no different in nature, albeit much more complex in degree, than the course of a very long river could possibly take from its origin in the mountains to the sea.

      Oh, and by the way, you're an idiot. Cockroaches will be around long after humans go extinct. Don't forget that termites are just evolved cockroaches, and they've been building complex structures for tens of millions of years, far longer than humans will ever do.

      God must love cockroaches...

    2. The brain, bach, cannot be fooled. Organs cannot be "fooled".

      People can be fooled, like you are fooled by materialism and reductionism.

    3. Michael,

      And your evidence that the brain can't be fooled, beyond your bald assertion?

      You are your brain. If your brain is seriously damaged then 'you' will change significantly in almost unpredictable ways. The brain is extremely complex. It's not necessary to add extras, such as a soul, to explain 'you'. Occam's razor and all that.

    5. Pepe,

      Yes, fools do that to me.

      And by the way, you're an idiot.
