I don't get that one, can you explain please.
It's ancient greek for "Come and Take It". It was purportedly said by King Leonidas I at the Battle of Thermopylae to the persian king when he demanded that they surrender their weapons. It has since been used by many generals, politicians, military groups, and individuals. I think it became wildly more popular after the movie 300 came out a few years back, which is about King Leonidas and the Battle of Thermopylae. It was also used in the comic books that the movie is based on. Since then it's been popular with 2A supporters.

Personally, I think people should just write "Come and take it" on their signs in English. I know the greek phrase is popular with gun supporters, but our politicians speak English, not ancient greek and some of them might not get the reference. You might as well just draw random shapes on some cardboard, shake it in their face and point/say "this is what I'm talking about!" ;)
