Cpl. Joshua Boston, the U.S. Marine who wrote a scathing letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) over proposed new gun control legislation was on FOX and Friends this morning. Feinstein wants to outlaw 120 specifically-named firearms including certain semiautomatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns.
Joshua Boston told FOX and Friends that Feinstein’s defense of her gun banning proposal is absurd.
“The idea that the rights of existing gun owners is strictly limited to hunting and sporting purposes is just absurd and has no basis in the Bill of Rights.”
Boston also said we need to look at the gun free zone laws that leave people defenseless. At the end of the interview Joshua Boston admitted that anti-gun leftists are calling for his death since his letter went viral.
and another interview by CNN
AHHHH! The people who think noone should have a gun, because they know that's what it will come to, because they hate hearing of people getting shot, they hate deaths,---BUT! These same libs who call themselves loving, peaceful and tolerant, want him to be MURDERED! Got their heads up their ass right where commie Frau Frankenstein and Obama and comrades want them!!!! - They are the "I'm so tolerant, I'm so loving, I'm so peaceful, I just want your head blown off if you don't agree with everything we do" crowd.
God help us all!
I wouldn't paint the gun control crowd with such a broad brush. It sounds like a few blowhards ideated about people who support the NRA dropping dead or something like that. It doesn't sound to me like he received a specific, credible death threat from someone who's stalking him. Although such things are possible, especially if one gets too much media attention and becomes the focus of someone who's crazy, I'm inclined to interpret this as empty ideological bluster. The Romans had a saying, "A dog who is barking is not biting."
I do find it obnoxious that some people think that sort of violent speech is acceptable. I've seen it on Care2, especially when discussing rape, bestiality, or any other taboo subject. People can be exceptionally graphic and vicious about what they ideate, as though they've never heard of the concept of "cruel and unusual punishment." People seem to enjoy being cruel and unusual, as though they were chimpanzees ripping an enemy limb from limb. Mostly I think it's people being lame and having poor emotional impulse control, that they wouldn't actually turn to violence. In some cases we might be hearing from someone who's genuinely mentally ill, but most of 'em are probably just stupid.
Anyways, the possibility of actual violence is what self-defense and concealed carry are for.

Hi Brandon, thanks for posting, thankfully you will not find those people here on this griup, I will not tolerate people being insulted, or any kind of vile speech. We still convey ourdisaproval without the need of profanity orpersonal attacks. No violence here!
Hrm, unfortunately at least one of those total boneheads is in a position of substantial political power. John Cobaruvvias, the Texas Democratic Party leader, issued a tweet advocating violence against NRA members. He later apologized. "I think my emotions got the best of me on this one. I don't think it was the right thing to do. And that's just my personal opinion, I don't think it was the right thing," he said.
Well, frankly, this is why we need the Second Amendment. So that we can say "oh really" instead of being afraid of these people.
We read the headlines of other scumbag leaders in Third World countries all the time. All the powers they amass to themselves, the Constitutions, Legislatures, and Courts they suspend. People think it can't happen here. But all we really need is for our economy to implode, and a major natural disaster, for people to become very much not nice. I'm a Global Warming skeptic, but what if it happens? If the economy is in shambles and suddenly everyone wants to move away from the coasts, or the crops aren't growing very well anymore, well....
I am afraid, those scenarios are already in the making because of Haarp...
Aaah, the HAARP stuff. I've read about that. Nothing has convinced me it's anything other than the standard conspiracy theory. But Global Warming could happen pretty seriously. I'm a skeptic, not a denier. And you'd have to have a hole in your head not to see the current US economy as "risky."
I am influenced in my thinking by Jared Diamond's book, "Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed." My biggest takeaway is that many societies have taken a cultural view that pretty much blinds them to taking self-protective action, until it's too late. Our current economy smells an awful lot like that. Everybody does everything on credit and monopoly money. Nobody has to produce tangible value. I don't see that kind of economic system as sustainable. It will either correct gradually, annoyingly, or catastrophically. Right now we're in "gradually to annoyingly," depending on who you are in what strata of society.
Well, I do follow the so called conspiracy theories, and find them very believable, all of this super storms are nothing more than false flags, just like 911 and all of the massacres that have happen, the latest one the elementary school in Connecticut, it just does not add up, we have had threads about this very thing in here...
