Tell NRA Board Member Rep. Don Young to keep his oath to America

To be delivered to Wayne LaPierre, CEO of the National Rifle Association and Rep. Don Young (AK-1)

Petition Statement

Rep. Don Young of Alaska, a member of the NRA's board, recently signed a "Letter of Declaration" calling for insurrection against the US government. We call on him to immediately re-swear his oath to our Constitution and repudiate the letter. Further, we call on the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre to publicly repudiate the letter and Young's signing of it.
There are currently 1,648 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

On March 10, 2011, five members of the Second Amendment Task Force/Alaska Peacemakers Militia were arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit murder and kidnapping. The group, led by Francis “Schaeffer” Cox, 27, had stockpiled firearms and munitions and was planning to kill multiple Alaska State Troopers and a federal judge. Cox had previously stated that “our government is sliding into tyranny, a police state” and boasted that law enforcement authorities “know we’ve got ‘em outmanned and outgunned.”

A YouTube video was recently uncovered that shows Rep. Don Young (R-AK-At Large) signing an insurrectionist "Letter of Declaration" drafted by Cox on April 13, 2009.
