Response to Original message
13. I reluctantly agree with you.
Not canceling the NRA Convention in Denver right after the Columbine Massacre was reprehensible.

Unless somebody can prove that Heston was already loosing his mind when he president of the NRA, then the hell with him.

He wasn't a very good actor either. Same overacting part in all his movies except maybe 'Will Penney'.
