Stewart Rhodes: My Personal Pledge of Resistance Against Any Attemp to Disarm Us by Means of an “Assault Weapons Ban”

Stewart Rhodes draws the line in the sand on the issue of an assault weapons ban and sends a strong message to the Govt: Don't Tread on Me.

20+ pages of comments from other Oath Keepers willing to stand with him.

Personally, I think we are a lot closer than you think to the second Civil War.

Thank you for the info, good post.

"What say you?" - Love it

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."


There is no duration defined in the Oath

This is what the NDAA is for.

They already know who their opposition is. So did the Nazi's.

The concentration camps in Corporate Fascist America will rival the atrocities of Hitlers Germany.

We are only a decade or so from a 3rd World War where US government expansion both at home and abroad will make Hitler's conquest look tame.

Fascism == Government (aka, Public) / Corporate (aka, Private) Partnership == Public Private Parnership

This is exactly how Hitler built his aggressive (aka, corporate) and progressive (aka, government) expansive oppressive regime

I love these people!

Welcome to the top of the short list.

Anything stronger than a

Anything stronger than a polite request for people to voluntarily give up their guns (which no sensible person should entertain) individually could result In a sudden and unexpected backlash... "blowback" I believe they call it.

Good Deal!

Hope he is being careful they tend to try and set up leaders who stand for freedom.

End The Fat
70 pounds lost and counting! Get in shape for the revolution!

Get Prepared!

thank you

Stewart Rhodes for President 2016!

I've been saying to hold off on being so quick to "nominate" ANYone for president in 2016, but after rereading through this entire piece, the purity and zeal just win you over.

If this man is everything that comes through in his pledge, it would be an honor to support him.

Thanks for sharing Maeve.

Assault Weapons

Battle lines are being drawn in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre over the right to bear arms and no one should be surprised if, as and when some kind of change comes about. Where the rubber meets the road, the debate seems to hinge on whether Americans should be allowed to own high capacity magazine assault weapons. Come what may I think the best line of defense lies with the meaning of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States which simply states...

"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. "

I will go out on a limb and float a trial balloon or proposal if you will, on gun control that both sides of the debate may potentially accept. Simply said, this proposal would require all American citizens who want to own automatic military assault weapons to belong to a well regulated militia. Of course, the debate then switches to who regulates the militia? Local police? State national guard? Any suggestions? Criticisms?

Ed Rombach

I say no debate until or unless a Constitutional Convention

is called. Until such time, the law is the law. You cannot change the Constitution by a mere Congressional (be it State or Federal)law but too many have accepted that it can be done because we continually allow it to happen.
Those who don't like our laws can move to the socialist utopia country of their choice.
I swear, if I was President I would give every politician calling for a law abrogating our 2nd Amendment a choice - either be tried for treason or leave the country the way they were born - with nothing. I'd confiscate every cent of wealth they accumulated before I let them on their way then pay off the debt with the money they amassed destroying our country.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
James Madison



“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Hey Stewart, why not beat them with this instead:

I challenge you to get up to speed on the real issues, that unless you are a government employee, receiving a paycheck from state or federal gov't twice monthly (bi-weekly), their internal statutory codes do not apply to you.

That means Title 1 through Title 50 of the US Code ..... None of them apply to the average American who's not on the gov't clock, period!


They want us to become violent and to threaten. What they are not expecting is for us to expose the con that those supposed gun laws (I mean statutes) only apply to state/federal personnel ... aka ... government agents who are receiving a paycheck to abide by those statutes.

The UNITED STATES is a foreign corporation operating on American soil. Every politician in the corporate actors guild had to expatriate from the republic (united States of America) before taking public office through their Secretary of State.

Put the information provided in this link on your site and watch the world turn upside overnight.

Then have your Oathkeepers watch this seminar by Dean Clifford so they can fully understand the con that's being perpetrated upon them:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2pMJyIikCk
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvKu2UNHQpA
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2GaxlGTyAE

You have a huge audience of intelligent people Stewart; use that audience to expose the fraud and stop this out of control gov't before they decide to drop the hammer.

The pen is mightier than the sword Stewart, and this information is damning to the establishment.

Once everyone figures out that those codes (US Codes) do not apply to anyone other than gov't agents/employees/officials and the word gets out, it's over .............. Freedom from tyranny at last!

Words of wisdom. Like you, I

Words of wisdom. Like you, I wish more understood all of this. I'm still learning the details of it all. Fortunately, some of my favorite people on Facebook provide great info on this subject, so I learn more every day.

I agree. It would be great to see Rhodes take a stand on this, but at this point in time it may be enough that people understand that their rights are being infringed, though they may not know the real reasons why. What matters most, is there are still so many men and women who will uphold their oaths to the Constitution as written by the Founders. That they don't yet know the scam perpetrated on us all doesn't seem to matter at this particular point in time. They are angry and determined, and that is what will make the difference, IMO. To educate them all on this subject when things are so dire, I think, will take more time than we have at the moment. Let's check the Govt actions first, and educate as best we can along the way. Time is not on our side anymore.

uh huh

you really do not expect an answer back are you?

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Nope, I expect that comment to go casually unnoticed and

disappear down the thread, but at least I'm trying to get SOMEONES attention out there who has some clout with an audience who will spread the word about this con.

When has the truth ever been complicated? The fix is as easy as pie; once people demand the state/federal gov't to cough up some employment contracts and payroll records that prove they are obligated to follow and abide by those statutes, the tyranny we know as the UNITED STATES corporation will have it's teeth pulled and this country will be free again; back to the Republic.

Will Stewart help lead the charge in exposing the information I provided in the link above?

I can only hope so, because we are running out of time to get this information out to the masses.

Keeping the Oath

bump...it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

As noted by one of the commenters...

Stewart Rhodes draws his line in the sand.

A must read article.

This is going to get really bumpy very soon so we need to share that link far and wide.


"Finally, I pledge to defend myself, my neighbors, my town, county, and state, against any attempt to forcibly disarm them pursuant to any “assault weapons ban” or any other illegitimate “law” passed by oath breakers within Congress, or pursuant to any illegitimate order, action, or decree by the oath breaker within the White House. We will not disarm. We will resist. And if given no other choice but to fight or to submit to abject tyranny, we will fight, just as our forefathers in the American Revolution fought against the tyrants, usurpers, and oath breakers of their day.

If we are presented with the “choice” of submission to tyranny or fighting in defense of our natural rights, we will fight, as our forefathers fought, when the British Empire attempted to disarm them and confiscate the military pattern arms, ammunition, and supplies of their time. We will make the same choice as Patrick Henry made, when he rejected “peace” purchased at the price of chains and slavery, and said “I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!” I too choose liberty or death.

I hereby reaffirm my oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor in defense of the principles of liberty enunciated in our Declaration of Independence, for which our forefathers spilled their blood. We will not let the Republic fall without a fight.

What say you?
