I’d appreciate gun owners pledging something other than “cold, dead fingers.” For example,
I pledge to practice gun safety at all times.
I pledge to keep my guns holstered or locked up when not in use.
I pledge to hunt for food, not solely for sport.
I pledge to aim my gun at a person only if I feel they may kill me or a loved one.
I pledge never to point a gun to intimidate, as a threat or a joke.
I pledge never to touch a gun in anger or rage.
I pledge empathy for those who fear or dislike guns.
I pledge to keep my guns out of the hands of others, unless they also pledge these things.
