    He was the best spokesman that the NRA ever had. I still get chills thinking of that speech.

    His movies are classics now too Ben Hurr of course but I like the character he played in his planet of the apes movies. Great stuff!They don't make them like that anymore, he will be missed.

    It's a sad day....now he's off to the big "Shooting Range in the Sky" blasting AR's and flintlocks w/ Moses, Jesus, and David. I hear David's a crack shot with a .223....sure wished he had that instead of a sling

    Well this is the only board I've read a thread about him died on where I didn't want to just jump through my computer. I won't mention any names but there's been a couple of non-firearms related websites where I've come across a thread like this with just people bashing him and saying good riddance, one less NRA member, etc. Here's a quote from someone which just doesn't make any sense whatsoever:

    I have no problems with the average citizen owning a weapon, but their are simply to many guns on the streets of Miami.
    All I can say is that I'll be staying off those boards for a while and sticking to my own...USA CARRY!

    You know he was married to the same woman for over 60 years. I am sure that was not to popular in Hollyweird.

    Sad that none of our local news stations covered his passing. I thought I heard about his passing briefly on Fox News, but didn't catch the entire segment. Glad to see that the folks on this board feel the same way I do. Charlton Heston was an excellent spokesman for the NRA and defender of our 2A rights.
