    National Holiday for John Browning

    Over at Michael Bane's blog he has a post about a guy that has a petition for a national holiday for John Browning's birthday and a stamp.

    For someone that has contributed so much for the continued protection of the Republic I can't think of anyone more deserving.

    I love my 1911, but I am not sure JB deserves a national holiday. I mean, he was special, but he just designed some awesome guns. I think national holidays should be reserved for people who made notable sacrifices for the good of the country or led the nation through a really tough time.

    Definitely should have a JB stamp, though.

    Yeah, I guess that would be better just to get the stamp.

    I could see a stamp, but a holiday is asking a bit much.

    Yeah, I was a little overzealous with my original post
