Reject "Second Amendment Remedies"

The National Rifle Association (NRA) and others in the pro-gun movement have argued that the only way to keep centralized authority in check is to ensure that individual citizens retain the capability to confront the government with force of arms. As NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre has said, “€œThe people have a right to take whatever measures necessary, including force, to abolish oppressive government.”

This idea, which we call “€œinsurrectionism” (popularly known as “Second Amendment remedies”), is part of a broader ideological perspective that opposes a strong, activist government in nearly all of its forms.  Insurrectionist philosophy degrades the democratic values and institutions that protect all of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

Insurrectionism has also moved beyond rhetoric and resulted in real violence in our country.

Please sign this pledge to indicate that you reject the pro-gun movement’s insurrectionist ideology as a perversion of our Constitution.

I Hereby Pledge...

The NRA and others in the pro-gun movement promote the idea that there is an individual right under the Second Amendment to kill elected officials, police officers, and military service members when one personally senses "tyranny." I reject this dangerous and treasonous idea. It is a perversion of our Constitution, which rejects the use of private, political violence to redress grievances.
