CNN PRODUCER NOTE joshdb50 was a Marine and was deployed to Afghanistan between the years of 2004 through 2005. Although he is no longer in the military he acknowledges that he owns gun. He says he does not believe the government needs to what guns he owns because he believes registration would lead to confiscation. He says the laws that are in place for gun control are plenty, and adding more laws will remove a means of defense for people. 'I own the guns I own because I acknowledge mankind's shortcomings instead of pretending like they don't exist. There are evil men in this world and there just may be a time when I need to do the unthinkable to protect me or my family,' he said. - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
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.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
Tell your armed guards to give up their weapons and you. Then we have a place to start talking. Till then you are hypocrites.
I have said from the very beginning the CCW permits were nothing more then this, Created to Confiscate our Weapons. I do not need a permit to exercise my Constitutional Right under the 2nd Amendment to keep and bear arms.
Under the US Constitution every law ever passed restricting the right of the people to keep and bear arms is Unconstitutional. This includes background checks, registration, open carry or anything else that pertains to an Americans right under the 2nd Amendment.
The 2nd Amendment has no qualifiers, period. For those who agree with any qualifiers to keep and bear arms, you are the reason why we are fighting to keep our rights today. For those who agree a convicted felon can't own a gun, tell me what law has stopped that from happening. Tell me any law ever passed that will or has kept guns out of the hands of evil people.
Every law ever passed has restricted the rights of We The People not the other way around. These new laws that are being considered will further erode our rights under the 2nd Amendment. You can't have it both ways, either we have the right to keep and bear arms or we don't!!!!!
Every American who fought against the British Crown during the Revolution were labeled as criminals and felons by King George. Had the British won under today's laws none of those Patriots would allowed to keep or bear arms.
Eight years Air Force, Security. It is absolutely NONE of anyone's business what I have or do not have in my home, but they can have it when they take it from my cold, dead, hands!!!!!
I applaud you Sir, for Taking the time to Serve and Protecting my ass overseas and in this country. THANK YOU from one who served before your time.
Thank you, Corporal Joshua Boston, for having the balls to tell that piece of trash what millions of other Americans should be telling their so-called "Representatives" all over the nation, instead of acting the role of sheep and silently submitting to their tyrannical demands. We, The People, are in charge here; let's keep this proper perspective!

I'm with you, Vernon! They should (but probably don't) understand the message. Might have to show them what it means.
Senator Feinstein. Not only do i AGREE 110% with my fellow Marine, I do not believe that you are legally carrying a concealed weapon and because you are protected by one of the world's largest law enforcement mechanisms, I believe you should not only stop this foolishness and turn in your own weapon as they are doing in your home state. Perhaps you may even receive a few votes from like minded nitwits that do not understand what Freedom really means and what the Constitution is all about. And just for your information, I am a Korea Veteran, A Marine for Life and I gave away all my guns but still know how to use my KBAR knife, baseball bat, axe, entrenching tool and any other implement I need to defend my property including from you and those in the Government like you that think that this kind of action will actually solve a problem. May I suggest that since your thinking processes seem to have deteriorated to the point of senility you consider resigning and depending on the police in your jurisdiction to protect you? You are obviously so mentally disturbed that you should never have been allowed to purchase or even own an actual functioning pistol...or is it a so-called assault gun?.....My lord protect us from this kind of politician before we have to physically remove all of them from office for the same mental affliction......could this be some kind of zombie virus spreading through the Administration and Congress right now?
Thank you for your service to Country, Marine; we're much indebted to you and your brothers in arms.
never said better
Thank you for your service
