First, from Patriot Post is a challenge to pledge as our forefathers did, to protect and defend our natural rights. Folks we must make this Pledge to each other, and do it for the whole world to see, just as they did.
"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."
On that note, enough is enough.
Liberty is "endowed by our Creator," not determined by executive
decree or congressional legislation or judicial diktat. Liberty is an
innate human right. It is a gift from God, not from politicians.
I have, herein, publicly declared that I will not comply with any
executive order, legislative action or judicial diktat, which violates
our Constitution, or the innate human right to defend self and Liberty. I
know that there are tens of millions of Patriots who are, likewise,
committed. As our Founders affirmed in the last line of the document
codifying their rejection of tyranny: "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."
Fellow Patriots, I can handle the consequences of my very public
declaration of intent to reject Obama's assault on the Second Amendment.
I am not asking you to make the same public commitment, though I know most of you would step up to the line."

Also, from American Thinker is a piece on playing chicken. Think clearly, folks.
federal officers are going to tell him that his weapon has been banned,
that the deadline has passed for him to turn it in at the local police
station, and that he must turn it over immediately....
this man gives in and hands the officers his weapon, he will feel for
the rest of his life that he has been broken -- that when push came to
shove, he did not have the courage to stand up for his children's
future. This, in short, is how the federal officials who sent the
officers to his door want him to feel, and how they want everyone to
feel: weak, ineffectual, emasculated, and submissive. It is how they
want you to feel when federal agents molest your wife at the airport,
and photograph your pubescent daughter in a naked scanner. It is how
they want you to feel about your "private" health records being
permanently on file with a half dozen federal agencies, to be opened at
their discretion. It is how they want you to feel about the thousand
bank-breaking regulations you are obliged to comb through and comply
with in the names of "sustainability," "social justice,"
"anti-discrimination," and a dozen other fronts in the war on
