Da da da da, thats all folks.
so it's your opinion that an actor isn't allowed to have an opinion on political matters?

and most anyone with common sense should be able to tell when an actor is acting or talking about a serious subject.

Oops! that left you out, didn't it? now was i acting or telling the truth?

So, did you like him better as Moses, or Ben Hur? He sometimes confused his rolls with real life.

Charleton Heston was an excellent spokesman for the NRA as well as being the president.

he wasn't afraid to voice his opinions, even when some told him it could possibly hurt his acting career. he did what he felt was right and ethical, even if it could have hurt his career. i have huge respect for someone who stands on principals and morals, rather than their career.

He was a actor who liked guns. I am sure there are lots of them. PS He had a nice collection.

Could you do me a favor and mail the pic to our governor of ct. He seems to need a picture book to help him understand his job.

there were many actors who liked guns from a long time ago era. many of them were very outspoken about gun rights and gun ownership. here are some that come to mind.

John Wayne.
Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.
Clint Walker.
Chuck Connors.

shameless bump in this thread!

i think Tom Selleck would make an excellent spokesman for the NRA. he has the voice that has the presence, his charisma is pretty good and he's as close to a choice i would make for a replacement for Charleton Heston.
