On my honor, as a Lassen Sharpshooter,
Venturer / Scout, I promise:
To always follow the rules of safe firearm
handling and shooting;
To seek to master those physical and mental
factors essential to the firing of an accurate shot;
To treasure my American heritage, the Bill of
Rights, and do all
I can to protect and preserve the Inalienable Individual Right to Keep
and Bear Arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment;
To recognize such individual right as being
justly considered as the palladium of the liberties of our republic
and deterrent to, and defense against, tyranny.
Exercising the American Bill of Rights.
