A former Marine says that an Democrats are like murderous dictator Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler's Third Reich because they are pushing to ban assault weapons in the wake of the recent slaughter of 20 elementary school students with a Bushmaster AR-15 in Connecticut.

In a letter to Sen. Diane Feinstein last year, retired Corporal Joshua Boston vowed not to register his AR-15 assault rifle because "I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one."

"I am not your subject. 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," Boston wrote. "I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American."

Fox News host Steve Doocy spoke to Boston on Monday after his letter went viral on the Internet.

"I think you -- like a lot of people, Joshua -- are worried that the federal government is going to come after our guns," Doocy observed.

"It's something we've seen happen time and time again in history," Boston explained. "With Stalin, it happened in Cambodia and then, of course, the Third Reich. No one saw that coming until it was too late."

The former Marine warned that gun-free zones made schools "a hunting ground for the predators in our society."

"Sure, and I believe that Sandy Hook Elementary was a gun-free zone and we know what happened there," Doocy agreed.
