    "Attaboy" ex-Marine "an embarrassment to those who served"

    "When I read about the open letter that former Marine Joshua Boston sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein regarding his gun rights, I couldn't help but feel temporarily ashamed of also sharing the title of former Marine."

    "Boston's attitude towards authority is frankly disgusting and his open letter is wrong in both its assumptions about why the gun-control debate has become heated, and the reasons why we should care about his opinions at all."

    "This iReporter believes that the semi-automatic, assault style rifles used in the Newtown, Connecticut, and Aurora, Colorado, massacres should be banned, as should high-capacity magazines."

    Any wonder he would demonize Boston? Not a one!

    Typical liberal left.


    They demonize anyone that touches a liberal nerve. That letter smacked said nerve!

    You know when the liberal left is affected; Just watch their reaction. If they ignore it. It means it didn't effect them.

    When they lash out and begin demonizing: BAM! Liberal nerve hit. Fire for effect !

    Sounds a lot like General Washington leading the secession from the throne, wouldn't you say?

    Is it his business to make Marines proud.
    He called out Feinstein for being the hypocrite she is. That should embarrass Dianne.
    Any laws you are willing to break if they are enacted?

    It sounds to me that you are grasping at straws.

    "I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself because that's what I did. I was trained in firearms. I'd walk to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon. I made the determination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, I was going to take them with me." Dianne Feinstein

    Ahh, so now a Marine is only credible when being compared to another Marine with less combat experience. If a Marine with 5 tours as a Forward Observer and Squad leader sent was embarrassed, would he then have more credibility then Boston? Is this how the credibility chain of command works?

    there is something called actual experience.... the active duty commissioned officers tend to feel the same way about their counterparts in the guard and reserves

    random people can make comments about what you do, without having actual experience.... but without actual experience, would you give them credibility?

    I coming to believe that this whole gun control debate might end with a million or so armed old geezers showing up for a protest in Washington.

    There is no substitute for actual experience, provided it's coupled with a clear application of what you've experienced. But we're talking about gun laws in the US, which is not unique to Boston's experience. Gabriel Giffords might have more experience with live fire, so do you give her opinion more credibility?

    I'm sure we all have the utmost respect for laws governing our social behavior. For instance, nobody on this here forum would ever use any form of illegal drugs. It's against the law.

    This is America. No one should have to obey any laws they don't like.

    Obeying laws is the kind of thing they do in Islamic Socialist republics.

    I believe that now is the time to bring back the Alien and Sedition Acts. This "big mouth" should spend a few years in gitmo. Maybe that'll shut 'em up.

    I guess we know where the Communist News Network stands on guns
    Whenever the legislators endeavour to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence - John Locke
