Marine who Wrote ‘I will not be disarmed’ Letter Debates Piers Morgan

The Marine Corps veteran who wrote the ‘I will not be disarmed’ letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight to debate gun control.

Morgan, who was rather civil and polite during the interview – perhaps he was still reeling from his encounter with conservative radio talk show host and WWE personality Alex Jones (Jones is not really a WWE personality, but he sure sounds like one) – asked the Cpl. Joshua Boston several poignant questions, among them, one concerning the escalation of gun ownership in the U.S. and whether that would lead to more violence.

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: If everybody exercises that choice and is legally allowed to do so, you could end up with every movie theater and every school and every church and every shopping mall in America with everybody armed with an AR-15 assault rifle and magazines that could kill 100 people in a minute. Where does that lead America to other than utter Wild West hell?

JOSHUA BOSTON, FORMER MARINE: All right, they said this was going to happen whenever Texas instituted its concealed handgun laws, and it hasn’t happened. In the Clackamas mall shooting there was a 22-year-old carrying a concealed weapon, and he presented his weapon at the threat, and he held his fire just like happened at Congresswoman Giffords’ shooting. There was a CHL holder there, and he held his fire.

The American people aren’t as gun-happy and trigger-happy as they’re being painted out to be by the media. They are smarter than that. They know when to hold their fire. They know when to fire. And we can increase the chances of success for these people that get caught in these situations for their survival by education. We’ve got to stop making this a taboo subject to everyone because it’s scary. We can’t give up our rights because we’re afraid.

Wow, it’s a brilliant response, isn’t it?

Cpl. Boston is absolutely right, and to his point about concealed carry not turning society into the Wild West, we know that this is totally true. Not only in Texas, but in every state around the country.
