(WASHINGTONTIMES) — Conservative political commentator and former Florida Congressman Allen West has made his gun rights stance permanent with a new tattoo.
Aces High Tattoo shop posted the evidence on Instagram, with Mr. West showing off a “Molon Lab” tattoo on his right forearm, the Daily Caller reported Friday.
The Greek phrase is popular among second amendment supporters for its expression of defiance. It is believed that when the Persian King Xerxes demanded Sparta’s King Leonidas and his army to lay down their weapons at the battle of Thermopylae, Leonidas replied, “Molon Labe,” which translates “Come and take [them].”
