I always thought it was Moh-lohn Lah-bay. However, it just occured to me that it could be Moh-lohn Layb. Please advice.

Please try not to laugh that hard at me though.

:uhoh: :(

I think he means that you can't beat up common thugs if they piss you off cause you own a gun, and that's irresponsible behaviour. If you demostrate that behavior and your a gun owner you make gun owners look bad.

Follow the link.

And wingnutx the link phonetically spells it, mo-lone lah-veh.
But I don't know my self. Just figured I'd jump in and be the one to prove your prediction right. HAHA

RTFM

Molon labe
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



The words "MOLON LABE" (ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ) in Greek as they are inscribed on the marble of the modern era monument at Thermopylae.
The Greek phrase Molōn labe! (Μολὼν λαβέ; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [molɔ̀ːn labé], Modern Greek [moˈlon laˈve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army's demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It corresponds roughly to the modern equivalent English phrase "over my dead body", "bring it on" or, most closely, "come and get it". It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.

Well over seven years old. Pronunciation hasn't changed that much since 2003.
