Allen West Believes In The Right To Bear Arms & The Right To Bare Arms (To Show Off His Tattoo)

Former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is so dedicated to his belief in the right to bear arms, he put it on his bare arm. (Sorry.)

West tattooed the phrase "molon labe," meaning "come and take" or "come and get them," on his right forearm. The phrase is popular among tea partiers and open carry activists.

On Sept. 4, Aces High Tattoo Shop posted a photo of West with his new tattoo to Instagram:
