Charlton Heston has died at 84

I guess we can have his gun now:

NRA advocate and epic actor Charlton Heston died today at the age of 84. He had suffered from symptoms consistent with Alzheimer's disease for the last several years. Surprisingly enough, this former president of the Screen Actors Guild and chairman of the American Film Institute marched in the civil rights movement of the 1950s before age and bitterness turned him to more conservative causes. He engaged in a lengthy feud with liberal Ed Asner during the latter's tenure as president of the Screen Actors Guild. His latter-day activism almost overshadowed his achievements as an actor, which were considerable.

I believe his last words were something about "those damned dirty apes."

... well, it's either that or some silliness about Soylent Green being made of people.

It's safe to take his gun now.

Allow me to respond to Michael Moore's "loaded" question:
The NRA was in Columbine to try and set a balance to the hosts of anti-gun lobbyists who wanted to blame the incident on the guns rather than the people who committed and assisted in committing that heinous act of cowardice. This is evidenced by the fact that Robyn Anderson, the woman who obtained some of the firearms for Those Two Assholes, is still free as a bird while gun shows like the one where she legally purchased the weapons are still "under fire" from lobbyists and politicians (gun shows being referenced most recently by Sen. Obama at his Fort Wayne appearance).

I think it was the timing of the NRA Convention that upset most people. At the time Michael Moore was a NRA member himself. He like many was torn between 2 desires. Keeping the 2nd Amendment viable and some form of Gun Control to diminish the Blood in the Streets. He also shows in that film that it was more of a culture of Violence America suffers from than the guns themselves. At least that was my impression. To attempt his ending quote in that film, "This many people, so angry, should not have this many guns."
Peace.
