Nobody who can race a chariot with quite the level of casuality and panache of Charlton Heston should be having threads like this raised against their name

You missunderstand me. I myself do not think he is a racist, but I know that a lot of people think he is. These numbers here look okay, although I do find it disturbing that at least some people think he is.

None of you have bothered mentioning why Charlton Heston is not a racist.

The man is dead.

Ergo....

He's dead?
So... were they able to pry the gun out of his...

Never mind. I prefer to speak respectfully of the dead.


When did he die?

I forget when he did.

Too lazy and tired to google the dead.

I googled, but I didn't find anything.

I think he's alive still, but suffering from Alzheimer's.

Yeah... but I forgot about the Alzheimer's.

That's even worse, in my opinion.

I don't really find myself to be discriminitory to any particular race...But I do discriminate against assh*les. Every race seems to have their fair share of them and I'll just lump them in the moderate or extreme category.

Why would anyone dream up a poll like this? All I know is that he was great in Planet of the Apes and Omega Man. I really don't know much else about him except I think he likes guns.

When he was Moses he did seem to have a bit of a grudge against the Egyptians. He brought down a whack of plagues on them.

Hey, it just occurred to me...that's collective punishment. Whether or not Heston is a racist, Moses definitely committed crimes against humanity.

They'll most likely reconcile it the same way the Americans justified voting Dubya in for a second term...

Wait a minute...Dubya got voted in because he has a Messiah complex and people mistakenly thought he was right instead of being certifiably insane. Does that mean that god thinks he's Dubya?

Good one, Rev.

This should be popular around here ... I think Chuck Heston and the NRA are absolutely correct about their gun policies. Disarming the people then taxing them beyond their ability to pay is not a new concept for government. It makes me a little nervous that Hitler and his guys used their "gun laws" as an excuse to confiscate much of the property of their chosen victims. Gave em a nice legal in. History has given us some lessons but we seem to have bought into the "guns are bad" game enough to hand over all the power to the government. Bad idea, in my view.

Here in Canada, I am not allowed to have a weapon. I have been shooting guns since I was so little my father had to stand behind me to prevent me from having my .22 knock me on my just-out-of-diapers behind. I was taught about guns, about gun safety and about the responsibility that comes with using one. Just as I was taught about the responsibility that comes with driving an automobile. Statistics prove cars kill way more people than guns, yet that little fact is swept under the carpet in all the anti-gun rhetoric.

That I am not allowed to have my .22 with the cool horse carving on the butt, handed down from my grandfather, because I refuse to jump through government hoops is a real thorn in my side. Blanket laws are not democratic. There is no provision made for people like me. And the ironic thing is that if I wanted to hold up the local 7-11, I could procure a gun with ease and it certainly wouldn't be my heirloom .22 I would use!! In my hay days, many of my friends and associates carried guns -- not one of them legal. Instead of taking away my gun, there need be laws to get rid of the guns that are actually causing damage. Unfortunately, those folk are not likely to be doing the government hokey pokey to carry their weapons.

So for all of you who thought I leaned so far to the left I was in danger of falling over, here's one to mull over.

I would however seriously consider taking the gun course and passing the test, to obtaining you're FAC. It might come in handy, and it will get one more person on the books who has one (the more the merrier), and you could legally obtain your grandfathers heirloom. I took the course and test and it wasn't difficult, in fact it was a good learning experience, and with your experience already, you should have no problem.
