|Samuel Colt (July 19, 1814 – January 10, 1862)|
If Samuel Colt was alive today, he’d be 200 years old. Col. Colt was a true American Entrepreneur that enjoyed the benefits and freedoms of the Constitution of the United States of America to better himself. At the same time he enabled Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. By conceiving, designing, and manufacturing hundreds of thousands of guns – using interchangeable parts on an assembly line – Mr. Colt mass-produced armed self defense.
Colt spread his product throughout every strata of American society.
The final word on Mr. Colt’s contribution to humanity comes from one of his company’s ads: “God made man, Sam Colt made them equal.”
