Oh man I hope some gun-control nut buys it and melts it down. I'd paypal $10 for that.

I'd but it and use it in a monument to freedom. Huge statue of Heston, anyone?

Someone who hates the US Constitution, Bill of Rights?

Legally purchased weapons in the hands of citizens do not scare me.

I hope while they're trying to melt it down it goes off and kills them.

Even in the future, he'll have a gun.

Unless it can be identified with some kind of signature, or it in some way shoots better than a normal version, its not worth it.

For what its worth, the money could be better spent on a movie prop.

Good riddance. Wasn't he the asshole holding NRA conventions after Columbine?

Or buy. And I think I would make it of him as Ben-Hur. Yeah.

Let's see Michael Moore go to Heston's grave and ask about gun control now.

***novelty purposes only. no item is actually for sale. I mean, we are pretty sure shipping guns across state lines is illegal.***

Wow. So much about that made my brain hurt.

I want to know who actually pried it out of his hands.

For example, I marched for civil rights with Dr. King in 1963 -- and long before Hollywood found it acceptable, I may say. But when I told an audience last year that white pride is just as valid as black pride or red pride or anyone else's pride, they called me a racist.

I've worked with brilliantly talented homosexuals all my life -- throughout my whole career. But when I told an audience that gay rights should extend no further than your rights or my rights, I was called a homophobe. - Charlton Heston


Same asshole?

I'd buy it and auction it at a profit five years from now and donate the proceeds to some gun-control cult.

/Or go to Bora Bora.

Charlton Heston is not a Glock guy. He seems more like the SAA type to me.

You could make Soylent Green with it.

Ben-Hur is a rambling, often nonsensical epic and it didn't make me believe in Jesus.

/some good action scenes though

I was waiting for him to go out like Steve Irwin, as in killed by a BB gun.

I'll only buy it if I have to pick it up at his funeral - and actually GET to pry it from his cold dead hands. It's only right.

Yup, Denver officials asked the NRA to either postpone or move their convention and The NRA said no way. The highlight was Heston making out this was an act by the 'gungrabbers' to steal his guns and then went on the old poor poor persdecuted gun nuts rant.

He probably will, but then claim Heston is dodging questions for not answering.

That's a lot of hate against somebody who participated in the civil rights movement before it became "trendy".

Fact: The Denver event was not a demonstration relating to Columbine, but an annual meeting (see links below), whose place and date had been fixed years in advance.

Fact: At Denver, the NRA cancelled all events (normally several days of committee meetings, sporting events, dinners, and rallies) save the annual members' voting meeting -- that could not be cancelled because the state law governing nonprofits required that it be held. [Their attorney had advised there was way to change location, since under NY law you have to give 10 days' advance notice of that to the members, or hold the meeting anyway and vote on it, there were upwards of 4,000,000 members -- and Columbine happened 11 days before the scheduled meeting.] As a newspaper reported:

"In a letter to NRA members Wednesday, President Charlton Heston and the group's executive vice president, Wayne LaPierre, said all seminars, workshops, luncheons, exhibits by gun makers and other vendors, and festivities are canceled.

All that's left is a members' reception with Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Okla., and the annual meeting, set for 10 a.m. May 1 in the Colorado Convention Center.

Under its bylaws and New York state law, the NRA must hold an annual meeting.

The NRA convention April 30-May 2 was expected to draw 22,000 members and give the city a $17.9 million economic boost.

"But the tragedy in Littleton last Tuesday calls upon us to take steps, along with dozens of other planned public events, to modify our schedule to show our profound sympathy and respect for the families and communities in the Denver area in their time of great loss," Heston and LaPierre wrote."

A great American eh? He was just another actor that agreed to be the frontman for the gun indu$try.

They want your money, they could give a shiat about your rights.

I want a tank, where is my tank? If I have the right to bear arms I want to bear a farking tank. Or maybe a nuke, yea, no one will care about my small penis then!

/draw the line? where?

Build a tank, or buy one. See the geek section - one guy did. Some State laws (protected by the Constitution you love right?) allow for such vehicles.

If you want a nuke, you'll have to get the materials but that'll be difficult as they are highly regulated.

And yes, you can get a tank. Few companies make them including Blackwater USA.

NRA conventions don't kill people either. Just because a couple retarded kids decide to go all Columbine doesn't mean we need to go on a witch hunt against everyone who is pro guns. That was the point of holding the convention. Now I don't personally agree with his views but I do understand where he was coming from.

That speech actually took place in another state.

You guys need to think for yourselves....Michael Moore is brainwashing you.
