According to Plutarch, a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, the phrase "Molon Labe" (mo-lone lah-veh), was the defiant response of King Leonidas of Sparta when Xerxes of Persia told him and his army to lay down their arms and surrender at the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC.
Leonidas and his soldiers held Thermopylae for three days. They were ultimately destroyed, but still caused serious damage to the Persian army and delayed Xerxes' progress to Athens which provided sufficient time for the city's evacuation.
Variations of the translation of Molon Labe have been repeated throughout history. "Come And Take It" was a slogan of the Texas War of Independence. Phrases such as, "From my cold dead hands..." and "I'll give up my gun, when the pry my cold dead fingers from it." have been used for many years and echo the same spirit of determination, resolve and defiance.

I worked with a guy that said, "If the Founding Fathers knew what kind of weapons we have today would ever exist, they would have never written the 2nd Amendment. And he had nothing wrong with anyone owning a flint-lock muzzle loader." I submitted to him, that if The Founding Fathers, could have imagined in their wildest dreams the types of communication devices we have in this day and time, that they would never have written the 1st Amendment. and that if the 2nd Amendment only applies to flint-lock muzzle loaders, the the freedom of speech and press would only apply to the one-sheet-at-a-time printing press!"
