FLASHBACK: Actor and former NRA President Charlton Heston during a speech in 2000 at the 129th NRA Annual Meetings.

"As we set out this year to defeat the divisive forces that would take freedom away, I want to say those fighting words for everyone within the sound of my voice to hear and to heed -- and especially for you, Mister Gore: From my cold, dead hands!”

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
