On April 11, 2014, the United States Postal Service inducted actor Charlton Heston as the 18th “Legend of Hollywood.” The stamp featured a colorized shot of the actor in his Ben Hur costume. Members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia, however, have an even more iconic image of Mr. Heston, from May 20, 2000 at the NRA’s 129th convention. That’s when the NRA President closed his speech by picking up a replica Kentucky rifle and stating . . .
“I want to say those fighting words for everyone within the sound of my voice to hear and to heed, and especially for you, Mr. Gore: From my cold, dead hands!“
