Happy Birthday Samuel Colt:
http://volokh.com/archives/archive_2009_07_19-2009_07_25.shtml#1248038998


  Today is the anniversary of the 1814 birth of Samuel Colt. Not only
   was Samuel Colt one of the greatest firearms designers of all time, he
   was also a brilliant industrialist, a philanthropist, and an
   outstanding pro-labor employer. In 2002, I wrote [1]an article in
   support of making the Coltsville manufacturing area into a National
   Park. In 2008, the area [2]became a National Historic Landmark; the
   campaign for National Park status continues.

"The lord made men, but Sam Colt made them equal”

Happy Birthday Sam Colt, and Thank You.

Today also marks the start of the Boer War...

Wish they had some Colt's of their own for that one.
Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."
Col. Jeff Cooper.

A very happy birthday celebration for us all. Thanks to Samuel Colt
