Reader Letter: Honoring the 2nd Amendment
I, Gianluca Zanna, former legal immigrant from Rome, Italy, now naturalized American and proud citizen of the state of Arizona, a law-abiding citizen, a peaceful and not violent man until illegal violence will be used against me and my fellow Americans.
I stand in front of God as my witness, on the date of the 27th of December 2012 AD, I pledge my life, my wealth and my honor that I will never comply to any gun confiscation and I will never surrender any of my guns, rifles or weapons guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution and by the Arizona Constitution, to any federal, state, local or foreign agency that will try to enforce any unconstitutional illegal act with the purpose to deny me of my God-given right of self defense.
I am aware of the risks that I may incur for my life because of this decision. I understand that the odds to survive any act of non-compliance are against me, and this is a serious matter, but so it is my dignity, my liberty as an American and my 2nd Amendment.
In case of a gun confiscation, not only I will not comply with it, but I intentionally will refuse to hide or separate myself from my guns, and I will bear them as I normally do every day of my life in the great state of Arizona.
So help me God.
