Mr. Charlton Heston; From My Cold Dead Hands. Long Version

Mr. Charlton Heston. "From my cold dead hands"


The Court said; "'The people' . . . unambiguously refers to all members of the political community" and "The very text of the Second Amendment implicitly recognizes the pre-existence of the right and declares only that it 'shall not be infringed.'"
-United States Supreme Court

Obama gun facts;

Charlton Heston's closing remarks at the 2000 NRA annual meeting in Charlotte North Carolina. He was a very fine American. Those five words; From MY Cold Dead Hands.

This man was a true Patriot. Freedom of the individual. Governments derive their just power from the governed (the people). People should not fear their government, their government should fear the people.

He believed in personal freedom so much that he gave the last good years of his life to freedoms cause. He was basically spat on by the not so far left, and ridiculed by the left. He definitely served his country well.

Back during this speech the NRA was having internal conflicts about how to fight those who would take our liberties away. Some were of the notion that we had to be bold and radical in defending our rights no matter who we offended, while others wanted a more balanced approach that didn't alienate the average gun owner. Mr Heston gave to us the last good years of his life bringing the NRA back together and making it the force for freedom that it is today, and I thank him for that. He served his country well.
