‘In the Third Reich…No One Saw That Coming Until It Was Too Late’ — Who Issued This Warning About Gun Control in U.S.?

Former Marine Joshua Boston Blasts Gun Control on Fox and Friends

(Fox News)

The former U.S. Marine who penned a blistering letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in response to her strict gun control proposals is continuing to speak out in defense of the Second Amendment. Appearing on “Fox and Friends” Monday, Joshua Boston warned that history repeats itself, saying in the “Third Reich” no one “saw [gun control] coming until it was too late.”

Boston also referenced the former Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin and how he implemented gun control in order to expand his power. “[I]t’s something we’ve seen happen time and time again in history,” he added.

Perhaps the most memorable portion of Boston’s letter to Feinstein read: “I am not your subject. I’m the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I’m the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I’m the flesh and blood of America. I’m the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American.”

Watch Boston’s segment on “Fox and Friends” via Fox News/Mediaite below:

In response to Boston’s letter, Sen. Feinstein’s office released a statement defending her proposed gun control bill. As included in TheBlaze’s previous report:

“She has heard from thousands of people — including many gun owners — who support her plan to stop the sale, transfer, importation and manufacturing of assault weapons and large capacity magazines, strips and drums that hold more than 10 rounds,” the statement said. “As Senator Feinstein has said, the legislation will be carefully focused to protect the rights of existing gun owners by exempting hundreds of weapons used for hunting and sporting purposes.”

Boston was not appeased with her response.

“This idea that the rights of existing gun owners is strictly limited to hunting and sporting purposes is absurd and has no basis in the Bill of Rights,” he said.

1) This guy is an a$$hole

2) What, EXACTLY are his intentions for his guns?

3) NO ONE is talking about taking your guns, they are talking about banning and restricting certain TYPES of guns.

The Assault weapons ban was successful and supported by both parties. 

Before Reagan left office in January 1989, efforts were afoot in Congress to pass legislation creating a national background check and mandatory waiting period for handgun purchases. The Brady Bill, as the legislation was named, had the backing of Sarah Brady, the wife of former Reagan press secretary Jim Brady, who was wounded in a 1981 assassination attempt on the president.

The Brady Bill initially struggled for support in Congress, but was gaining ground by the latter days of Reagan’s predecessor, President George H.W. Bush. In a 1991 op-ed for the New York Times, Reagan voiced his support for the Brady Bill, saying the 1981 assassination attempt might have never happened if the Brady Bill had been law.

Citing statistics suggesting 9,200 murders are committed each year in the United States using handguns, Reagan said, “This level of violence must be stopped. Sarah and Jim Brady are working hard to do that, and I say more power to them.” It was a 180 degree turn from Reagan’s 1975 piece in Guns & Ammo magazine, when he said that gun control is pointless because murder cannot be prevented.

Three years later, Congress had passed the Brady Bill and was working on another piece of gun control legislation, a ban on assault weapons. Reagan joined former Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter in a letter published in the Boston Globe that called on Congress to pass a ban on assault weapons. Later, in a letter to Rep. Scott Klug, a Wisconsin Republican, Reagan said the limitations proposed by the Assault Weapon Ban “are absolutely necessary” and that it “must be passed.” Klug voted in favor of the ban.

This is a "slippery" slope..certain guns are allowed in Britain but one cannot "defend" themselves.. It depends on how  new gun legislation is worded..

While I do agree that the wording of every piece of legislation is clear, we are not Britain and have no plans on becoming Britain.

Americans have the right to defend themselves, and always have. Zero people are trying to change that. The stats prove the assault weapons ban worked.

He has a point. But its all in how it the leg is written. But no matter if we ban them or not people can make the mags all you need is a spring. And its easy to take the AR15s apart and put back together. Just imagine how many people will smuggle them into our country. A person will always find a way to kill someone else. If its truely about stopping killings, or is it only stopping kills by guns?!

You can't have a normal conversation can you...you always have to be "one" up.. Whatever Sweets..

I am not sure what you are referring too, we know because it's legally protected...

What you are saying is either just a fear you have unless you are pointing to a law pending that would outlaw self defense...

so in other words, we KNOW we have the right to defend ourselves...which is what I said and you said let us HOPE...Hope has nothing to do with it, its your legally protected right to defend yourself and no one has suggested legislation saying otherwise

normal conversation...you seem to give things meaning that you make up...my words weren't accusatory or adverse..YOURS were

Constitution protects gun ownership.

How can this compare to Nazi Germany?
