Gun owners have begun speaking out on behalf of their constitutional rights — directly, in some cases, to those who would infringe upon them. Joshua Bostonwrote a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, declaring that “I am not your subject,” which has drawn plenty of attention in the post-Newtown political arena. Boston appeared on *Fox and Friends *this morning not just to talk about the letter, but to rebut Feinstein’s response to it:
“I am not your subject,” Boston wrote.
“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.”
Boston explained that he believes once the government takes away assault weapons, it will be a “slippery slope” toward being able to restrict more and more types of firearms.
“Our firearms are important to us and they’re something that we have to have in order to keep what we have as a country going. And this starts us onto a slippery slope. They take (assault weapons) away, next they come for bolt-action guns. And there’s really no reason to register other than they confiscate at a later date in time,” said Boston.
He mentions that he has had some responses with some wanting him dead. If any should be worried it is the left who want to kill people they dislike.
