He is a fool for writing the letter.

He is a Marine who is proud to stand up for what he believes. Nothing invites attack more than showing weakness.

Yes. If you don't stand your ground or draw a line then you give those who would take from you the idea that you will just roll over. 20,000 gun laws, they take we give. NO MORE! The line has to be drawn here. No further.

Praise this whackjob all you want. To me, he's justt another hysterical gun nut, trying to make himself out to be some sort of victim, over a law that hasn't even been proposed yet. Just looking for a pat on the back for being such a brave patriot. Yawn.

I think it's time to let the anti-rights bunch know they are now the target. I will not vote for or support any one trying to take my rights and will support with all aid and money I can to their opponent. It would seem they would learn from the last time they tried this and so many were put out of a job.

That "Wackjob" and thousands before him made sure you have the right to say that. Chicken crap like you always want to dis those with a backbone. This law already happened once and failed or don't you read history? Be careful talking with your mouth full.

The real danger comes from a society that promotes the indiscriminate killing of the unborn child, and the early death plans Democrats have for the elderly. Go into those Chicago, and Detroit neighborhoods where the killing goes on every week-end, and holiday, and tell me what you see. They don't fear death, or going to jail. It is a way of life for those people. Politicians won't do anything to stop it, because those folks are their voting base, and they just don't care if they kill each other off.

Might want to talk to Marine "Corp" patty from your neck of the woods who pretends to be a vet....maybe your him under another name. We know you clowns get several names on topix in a vain attempt to convice everyone that more people think like you. LMAO

Dont' hand me that rubbish. So he served a hitch in the Marines. So what? That doen"t make his word holy. You may be right that "thousands before him" protected my freedom but the letter writer is a lot younger than I am which means i was a free man long before he was born.

But here is my point: He wrote the Senator a letter saying that IF she proposes a certain law and IF the law is passed and IF the law has a cetain provision THEN he will not obey the law. What is so heroic about that? Again this guy has not lost any rights. He is just playing the brave martyr. Again i say YAWN.

WAKE UP SHEEPLE. You could have had Ron Paul,the great exposer.

This so-called "martyr" should be arrested if he disobeys any gun laws. Sometimes a stint in Iraq or Afghanistan can make you even crazier than you were before you enlisted.

As with ALL military personal the oath comes first. As any person in the military will tell you it is not only a right to disregard an illegal order it is a responsibility. "So what"? Let's see you try it.

A man that has spent 8 years living in cold, heat, having people try to kill him all day and night is going to be scared of an arrest where he will be fed, clothed and provided a place out of the weather to sleep? You are an idiot. He made an oath to give his life for this country and the Constitution years ago. I know you may not understand but most take their oath very serious.(Politicians excluded).
