Pledge to resist gun control

"The right of the People..."

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." --Second Amendment, Bill of Rights, United States Constitution
To the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the federal government, and to those of the several states:
We, the People, affirm that we will support and defend Liberty as "endowed by our Creator," enshrined in our Constitution and empowered by its Second Amendment, "against all enemies, foreign and domestic."
We affirm that said Amendment was established to define an individual "right of the People to keep and bear arms," for the purpose of defending Liberty, and "The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." (Justice Joseph Story, 1833) Accordingly, we oppose any defensive weapons ban, by way of executive order, legislative act or judicial diktat.
We undertake this affirmation in accordance with the pledge taken by our Founders when codifying our formative Declaration rejecting tyranny in any form and for all time: "For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor."
From the link on that page to "more":
"To Support and Defend"
Though tens of millions of American Patriots have already said it, the time has come for one of us to go to the mountaintop and shout it so the whole world can hear it.
I, Mark Alexander, hereby make this public declaration: In keeping with the oath I have taken in the service of my country, I will "support and defend" Liberty as "endowed by our Creator" and enshrined in our Constitution, "against all enemies, foreign and domestic." Accordingly, I will NOT comply with any defensive weapons ban instituted by executive order, legislative action or judicial diktat, which violates the innate human right to defend self and Liberty, as empowered by "the right of the People to keep and bear arms."
What does this mean?
I will neither register with, nor surrender to the government, any weapon in my possession. I further declare that I am not in possession of weapon, weapon component or ammunition that has not been lawfully acquired for lawful purposes, including defense of self and family, home and property, and most importantly, defense of Liberty in accordance with the Second Amendment.
More at the top link, including a place to sign the pledge.

I just did.
