This may have been posted in January 2013, but it is timeless and just as true today: our right to bear arms shall not be infringed! Come and take it!
I spoke at a Second Amendment rally in Salem, Oregon, on the capital steps on January 19. I quoted Charlton Heston and the crowd of patriots, most proudly carrying their firearms, knew the second Heston quote before I could even begin:
“From my cold, dead, hands!”
The term “Molon Labe” was made famous by King Leonidas of Sparta, in response to Persian invader Xerxes I, prior to the Battle of Thermopylae. Xerxes demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms and submit.
King Leonidas’ reply? The Greek “ΜΟΛΟΝ ΛΑΒΕ.”
Simply translated, “you come take it.”
That rallying cry is everywhere today — Twitter, blogs, the NRA, t-shirts, ball caps and tatts.
The gun-grabbing Progressives have awakened a sleeping giant: the American people know in their hearts that “gun control laws” are the predecessor of tyranny.
Ask the first Americans struggling to escape the tyranny of King George. Ask any surviving Jews from Hitler’s Germany.
Sorry. We patriots love America and her Constitution and you will only take our firearms from our cold dead hands.
Come and take it.
