'Come and Take Them' Patch Sends Clear Political message

The Second Amendment Foundation has released a pro-gun patch bearing the slogan “COME AND TAKE THEM.” Guns.com is guessing that the phrase, “You’ll have to pry it from our cold, dead hands” was too long to fit on a patch. 

Alan Gottlieb, the founder and Executive Vice President of SAF, notes that the patch can be sewn into just about any garment, and the hook-and-loop nylon fastener allows the patch to be mounted and removed. 

Gottlieb also has strong words about the meaning behind the patch, directing his ire at politicians and police agencies, “What the police are doing is a deliberate theft of personal property, and they know it. […] Government agencies simply cannot seize private property and refuse to give it back by playing bureaucratic games.” That statement makes Gottlieb sound a bit more like a member of the Fourth Amendment Foundation than a member of the SAF, but we can let that one slide. 

As much as we’d like to supply you a link to an online store so that you can get your hands on one of these, we can’t. The SAF patch currently isn’t available online and will only be available through gun shows and the SAF’s Bellevue office. 

When the SAF isn’t making fashionable gun rights patches, they’re suing the pants off of federal institutions that play loose with the Second Amendment.
