    I sure hope that isn't his real name. He would most certainly be investigated if in fact this DID pass. He openly says he would not follow a law and then gives his name, not a good move.

    I think the rest of it is wonderful and to the point.

    Standing up also means being counted. These words would be far less meaningful if he didn't put his name behind them.

    Dianne would like to see all our guns sent to her Chinese steel mill and melted down.
    Yep! Her and hubby are part owners of a steel mill located somewhere in China!
    Feinstein is old and politically washed up so HOPEFULLY this is her last hurrah!
    The sad partis that she is using a tragedy to further her political adgenda.

    I don't get the chance to say this often, but HOORAH!

    I'm not a former Marine but I agree with this man.

    G.Barnes, they simply don't compute that way. Most never will comprehend the difference they, themselves, could have made in a given situation. It's all about calling 911 and waiting, then complaining about the lack of results. It's ALWAYS somebody else's fault. Many, if they even had a gun, would give it up in a heartbeat and actually count against the rest of us for supplying the BG with a firearm.

    He may be a veteran, but he is not a retired veteran. A minimum of twenty years of active duty service (or 'good' reserve service) is required to be eligible for retired veteran status.

    Only veterans with eight years of service who were separated from the military between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2009 for medical reasons are eligible to have the Physical Disability Board of Review look at their cases for possible eligibility for "medical retirement" before their 20-year mark.

    Ummm. Perhaps he meant to say "I (once was) (a) man who kept you free"...

    Creature, he is part of the "well-regulated militia", at least how our founding fathers saw it. By being a gun owner, he is prepared to defend this country, current military status or not.

    If you ever talk to a Marine, they will proudly tell you that there are no "former" Marines.

    Sounds like a steady, sober, determined man.

    A real credit to your nation.

    Good point Slipknot. And I should have said "I am not and haven't been a Marine." Nothing against the military, I'm just not cut out for living in a desert climate.

    Sounds like a man I would want as a neighbor! Glad he wrote it.

    I've never been a Marine either, but I shared a military base on Okinawa with a few. They are a proud group of individuals, but they get up too early in the morning for my taste.

    Go Army!!

    Direct, to-the-point, and full of truth--awesome! :cool:

    Sadly, however, to Feinstein he is merely another nut who strengthens her resolve to keep firearms out of the hands of the people. She doesn't need to justify her own use of firearms because she is a public official and therefore trusted by the people more than ordinary individuals are. There is no hypocrisy when, in her mind, she is a special person--a leader who was chosen because of her inherent superiority. :barf: She can handle and be trusted with guns, not us--this is what she really believes.

    I wrote a letter to Feinstein when I was in California. I received a response thanking me for supporting her cause. :banghead: That made it clear that writing her could only be effective if she actually cared what you think.

    Her "sister" in crime against the Constitution, Boxer is probably fussing that the marine referred to Feinstein as "ma'am".

    I believe the only defense against her ilk is the courts.

    "He may be a veteran, but he is not a retired veteran.

Maybe he retired from another field of work and then he could be retired and a veteran.Whatever the case he was a Marine for 8 years. I salute him and support him.
