Molon Labe

Molon Labe. Wikipedia:

The Ancient Greek phrase μολὼν λαβέ (molṑn labé; reconstructed Ancient Greek pronunciation [mo'lɔːn la'be]; Modern Greek pronunciation [moˈlon laˈve]) means "Come and take them". It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.

Big Fur Hat at IOTW just announced that his Molon Labe design will soon be available on t-shirts from Very nice!

You can find other Molon Labe shirts at Gasden and Culpepper, and stickers/hats/shirts at Zazzle.

Instapundit blogger Glenn Reynolds interviews gun-blogger Bob Owens today.  Good conversation.

We tip our furry ushanka to Bob for discussing the significance of April 19, 1775 at the 4-minute mark.  Everybody needs to know about that day.

UPDATED 12:15pm:

We highly recommend Bob's latest post about the four boxes.  This paragraph stands out:

Sober and reflective men who have seen the horrors of combat in far away nations are grimly preparing their kit for a conflict within the borders of our Republic. They do this not because they desire an interruption of our domestic tranquility, but because they’ve already seen it shattered.

Big Fur Hat's shirt is now for sale at Anthem Studios.  Just $15!
