Charlton Heston Dies at 83

Sadly, I just read that a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fblog%2Fpost%2FPLNK30XTADQKRZIBBtag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=ur2camp=1789creative=9325″Charlton Heston died/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicomamp;l=ur2amp;o=1″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / last night. I have long admired Heston and his work and was really honored once when he a href=”http://archive.newsmax.com/archives/articles/2001/5/10/214624.shtml”wrote a review/a of my book, “The Scarred Heart” in the span style=”font-style:italic;”American Rifleman/span magazine. He will surely be missed.br /br /Update: I keep in my home office a plaque signed by Heston that reminds me of why it is so important for all of us to continue to keep this country free and to fight for second amendment rights. The plaque reads:br /br /blockquoteSo that this nation can long endure, I urge you to follow in the hallowed footsteps of the great disobediences of history that freed exiles, founded religions, defeated tyrants and yes, in the hands of an aroused rabble in arms and a few great men, by God’s grace, built this country.br /br /–Charlton Heston, at Harvard Law School, 1999/blockquote
