‘I am Not Your Subject, I Won’t Register My Guns’

The following is a letter written by Marine Combat Vet Joshua Boston to Senator Diane Feinstein in reaction to her threat to require nationwide registration of firearms:

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

    Josh for president! Americans for congress! ENOUGH SMARMY SLIME DEMOCRATS! GET OUT

  • Shelby

    Right on Joshua! Thank you for your service to our country!

  • Michelleo

    WELL SAID!!!!!! – AMEN BROTHER!!!!!

  • Charles

    Joshua Boston I would like to shake you hand. This country needs many, many more like you. Our schools have failed to teach our history for so many years the young people of today don’t really realize what a great nation they are privaliged to live in. And another segment just wants what the Gov. will hand them, while they sit on their fat A**
    It looks as if we are going to have to fight a battle here on our on soil.
    Because of our citizens not keeping up with what is really going on in our Gov.

    A Great Statement that I Support 100 Per Cent ! This should go Viral, so that just maybe, these “Parasite Politicians” get the message ! We, as Oath Keepers, will not surrender the Constitution in the way that the Democrat Party is advocating. Control of Our Lives, not Guns is the issue here. This Marine offered his Life in defence of this Constitution, and his and others will Not be in Vain ! Semper Fidelis

  • currituck

    Right on Brother..Well written..In hopes millions more follow your lead..

  • henryknox

    I believe Joshua should run for a seat in congress. I would be glad to contribute and work his campaign. We need more people that understand the relationship of the people to the gov’t.

    • maryflaur

      Right on!!

  • kathycasey

    I stand 100 percent behind that statement! I, too, would contribute to his campagne should he decide to run for congress. What a great letter!

    • A great letter!! I wonder if Feinstein read it!! They don’t read anything else!!

      • I hope he’s from California, as she dosn’t allow Emails from out of state.

  • Ghandi, the man of peace, declared in his auto-biography..”The disarming of the citizens of India by Britian was the “blackest” of all their misdeeds!

  • fancycake

    that took guts esp. if he is still in the service. EVery point is dead on. Take away their protection and see how long they last, including our President. He has guns all around him and his family, out of necessity yes, but he is being hypocritical trying to tell others they cannot protect themselves. Yes, I think there should be a campaign of similar letter writing to every member of Congress and the President stating such views. Time to get motivated and stand behind this courage young man. I would be more than willing to testify before Congress on the failure of our Mental Health system, but I suspect anybody with any kind of psychological issues (PTSD) wouldn’t get with in 200 feet of them. Again, the hypocrisy of it all. There are truly ways to help people we just don’t want to expend the money or the energy. Ergo, the whole system is a farce.

  • Kalev

    Yes right on, this one SHOULD go viral. and Feinstein should be charged with treason for her stand against the 2nd Amendment.

    • ginger

      And take her guns and permit to concealed carry first.


      • Stan Smith


  • vietnamvet1971

    Right ON, Feinstein is a Buffoon Elitist Liberal of the Lowest Caliber /Class.

    • Kent2012

      yes and sooooo ugly that it hurts, she has bucks get some plastic surgery or explosive……

  • Reg

    Well said Joshua. Your parents must be extremely proud of you and what you stand for. I wasn’t able to serve in the military, but if you were my son I would be walking around and the buttons on my shirt would be popping off for the pride you have instilled. Many of us are with you on this manner. Good luck.

  • Bob Jones

    Should have added FUDIFI. Old bat should have retired years ago.

  • ginger

    This is one letter that I shall print out and send to everyone I know and to Congress..God bless you Josh and thank you for your service to our country.

  • Ken A

    Diane Feinstein is trying to take away from the American citizens the very thing that kept Japan during world war 2 from attacking us on American soil. The feared the fact that there was an American gun behind every blade of grass and therefore did not attack. Feinstein, the American traitor would have us all be disarmed so that any nation could attack us at will. She should immediately be arrested and be charged with high treason for her despicable actions! Also, for trying to take away our only protection against an American Government becoming tyrannical.

    • billandr

      Alaska was not only ATTACKED, we were also INVADED and OCCUPPIED! While we were not a State at the time we were and are AMERICAN SOIL!

      • Sam Smart

        True and how many Americans know that Obummer has given away several Alaskan Islands to the Russians?

  • HadEnuf

    This should and MUST be the reponse of every American that values their freedom! This is where the ———- in the sand has been drawn and it’s you sheeple find a backbone and unite together to say your NOT taking our arms and if you try, you’ll get them BARREL FIRST! – Got that sheeple? I ve been a free spirit and a free man all my life and I plan on being one until the day I die; the rest of the country should feel the same way too!

  • Nor will I give up my weapons or freedom!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • K D

    I am not a subject or a serf either – I will not comply – though sometimes I am afraid and I wonder if I can have the courage of our founding fathers – I remember Adonai li v lo Ira – the Lord is with me, I fear not – and I remember the message translation of Matt 6:32 …..People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

    • Kent2012

      you must make the decision to do or die. communists do not stop at one freedom removed. live free or die fighting

      • Big Jim McClain

        Very well said. It is do or die and I choose to fight to the death. I’m doing it for my children and grand kids and their kids. We hold the future of our descendants in our hands right now!

  • chuck

    Outstanding !!!!

  • Steve Lyle

    Agree! I have no intention of passively volunteering to register or relinquish my weapons…no military, active or veteran could in good conscience or in good sense do so. Perhaps if BO hangs a sign up designating the WH as a gun free zone, I might be willing to discuss my belief in having weapons…I doubt there is an argument that would get me to change my mind, but we might talk about it.

    Each veteran, especially ex-Marines, Airborne, Rangers, SF, etc. should pen a note along the lines of Mr. Boston’s to their respective Senators and rep. The government has the power and the means to do as they wish. Let’s make sure they understand that we and there are a number of us, who are free and know why we are free will be difficult to subdue and rule over as if we were subjects.

  • Bob Hauser

    Semper Fi against DiFi …doesn’t get any better. The voters of Cally obviously don’t care what gets scraped off a wall and wiped off on the edge of a desk in the Cannon Senate Office Bldg…..I can just see Diane SWINEstein angrily stomping back and forth in her senate office and putting on a real Beltway Theater routine about “we need to do something now to protect those poor kids….blahblahblah”…but down deep in the lowest sancta of her rotten bowel tract that wretch of an excuse for a woman is dancing the fraehlich over what happened at Sandy Hook. The only thing Swinestein and her ilk in politics ever knew about the word “sincerity” is that it lies in the dictionary somewhere between “shit” and “suicide”

  • Joeyblitz

    What a perfectly worded statement to the tyrants ,that have seized control of our Nation. They need to all be tried ,and imprisoned for extreme high treason against the American people ,and the constitution of the United States of America. We may have to take matters into our own hands,and I am sure ,most of our military will not take arms against us,as we install a new government for the people ,by the people,and chuck these criminals occupying the white house,senate ,and congress,and TSA,IRS,Homeland security ,into prison camps ,and firing squads.

  • Damn straight, obama wants a war like Syria, he wants to destroy our country, he needs to be impeached, along with any and all that oversteps the constitution, I don’t care if they are Democrats, Republicans, liberititans or Conservative s. The second amendment is our guarantee that the government can’t roll over us like please like hugo chavez , or barrack h obama.. Obama will try three amendments that get in his way, first he wants the 2nd, to pasifiy the people, then the 1st, one to silence, the other to punish Christian, the 22 to stay in power like hugo chavez , I say not on my watch, I swore an oath to defend this country, from any and all enemies, both forigen and domestic. People will stand up to a dictator, and we will fight against an evil man, and his czars, and clonies !!!!! It will be a battle cry, like Bunker Hill.

  • Hats off to that man for standing up to “Franken-Fein” Stand tall and stay strong brother.

  • Douglas

    Our fore fathers laid it out very clearly in the 2nd. Amendment. First the 2 nd. Amendment was drafted for one thing, and owning and arming ourselves another. The first part is a Right of man by God to protect ourselves from evil that would do us harm, or take our property thus own Guns..this right man/Government Can Not Undue. The second part of the 2nd. Amendment is a warning to be ready to establish a Militia (a militia is a Non-Government Army of Private Citizens, they are not to be paid or shall they have a fixed time of service (meaning they will always be ready)), that should a group of men running our Country Get Out Of control…then it is Our Rights and Our Fore fathers Hope that we would Stop them at all cost..to protect our freedoms!! Obama stated he wanted to form a Militia of Private Citizens an Army as Mighty as our Military…ever wonder why he wanted this Militia and now calling for Gun Restrictions?? I do…and it isn’t Good!! If you think about it you do also! You just don’t want to believe it!

  • Jeff Lundholm

    You got my vote, Josh!

  • Carol-Christian Soldier

    JOSHUA’s letter HAS gone viral–!!

    I will support him when and if he needs it—

    I will also pray for his protection-as I do not trust those in ‘power’–those who honestly believe that we are their slaves–


  • Gunner

    very well said, I am glad to hear that people are starting to wake up…

  • Lizelot

    Registration is a very bad idea, and usually the first step towards confiscation, i.e. disarming of the law-abiding citizens, leaving the criminals and despots free play. Feinstein, who should remember the Holocaust, should be the last person to propose such an inane idea, but then she never thinks, does she?

    • She does remember the holocaust. That’s why she wants your guns…

  • brabbie2002

    HOO-RAH! You tell it like it is and I, like millions, will stand behind you to the death if need be to save our 2nd ammendment from the likes of her and her insane followers!

  • I support this man 100 percent

  • Simper Fi (I always did have respect for the “Jar Heads”. JV, USN (Retired).

  • She dosn’t want to see what I own, she’d vapor-lock in a second!

  • Rev. Irving Goldfarb

    C.C.W. Permits are now over 1M in Florida care to guess how many white Christians do not feel the need to to be licensed.

  • Kent2012


  • JOF

    As a former US Army Colonel,I agree with you 100%! You are an outstanding soldier and PATRIOT! Remember a government left unchecked by an unarmed citizenry, is a government that will run rampant against it’s citizens. We are seeing this happen now.

  • Semper Fi Bitch!!

  • abbygal

    KUDOS Joshua Boston!!!!

  • CA is in big trouble already with many Refugees and Illegals! I am sure the government doesn’t have a clue who these people are. Why is Mexico allowing illegals from Columbia, Brazil, Cuba, Venezuela, China, Philippines, Korea, Africa @ ?? to get to our borders? I guess this is cheaper than Mexico sending them back to their country. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE AND HOW ARE THEY GETTING MONEY TO GET TO MEXICO?

    Feinstein should worry about the Fast and Furious guns in the country and what it is costing us to pay Mexico for the people killed by these guns. She should be sponsoring a BIRTHRIGHT LAW. google Chino Hills Pregnant women from China. Once they have a birth certificate they are good to come here for education and welfare and at 21 bring the family.

    Feinstein should look at the CA death rate from criminals! not the death rate from citizens protecting themselves.

    The schools should have been installing double doors and safety glass after the shooting in CO 15 years ago and scanners at movie. This is not going to stop criminals. We need more people with carry permits who pass a back ground check and know how to use the guns.

    These criminals will find a way to shoot someone, there is no safe way to stop criminals.

    We need the Military on the borders to help the Border Patrol to clean up the drug lords and protect the American Citizens. Obama don’t seem to care how many illegals are coming across the borders. With many of the Mexicans working in the Welfare dept they don’t check ID’s and give the illegals Welfare and as soon as they have one baby they are set for life generation after generation. How many people are staying over their visa’s? CA don’t enforce the E-Verify laws!

  • Same here, I will never register my guns. The Government needs to be reminded it is here to serve, not to rule. By the people for the people. I hope that feinstein bitch gets laughed out of congress. She’s definitely a traitor to the constitution and the 2nd amendment. And she’s clearly stated that.

    Way to go, we should all write letters like this.

  • maryflaur

    My father, a WW1 veteran, and my first husband, Korean war, and my present husband, a veteran of 23 years in the army, all defended my right to keep and bear arms. I, too, will not register my guns.

  • Semper Fi!

  • Pamela F

    Awesome statement! You can be assured that the majority of people, and all legal gun owners will never, ever give up our guns. And WE, the PEOPLE, the law abiding, tax payers DO HAVE the MILITARY on OUR side…not the side of the crooked, Democrats who hate the military and our freedoms. So, just try to come get ’em and watch what happens….

  • Terry

    Very well said Joshua, and I agree wholeheartedly, but keep in mind that accuracy on the part of all of us is important and the number of firearms control laws in this country exceed 20,000, not 2,000 as you said in the interview on television. There are so many laws that no one even knows what all of them are, like so many other aspects of our lives! Take care and God Bless you kid!!!
