This upcoming Friday, April 5, will be the 5th year anniversary of the death of Charlton Heston, one of the greatest actors of all time.

 

His best known roles include The Ten Commandments, The Greatest Story Ever Told, The Agony and the Ecstasy, Ben-Hur, The Greatest Show on Earth, Midway, Planet of the Apes, and Beneath the Planet of the Apes.

 

But Chuck was also known for his political activism. He was originally a liberal Democrat, even supporting the Gun Control Act of 1968 when asked why he did that, he replied, “I was young and foolish”.

 

But soon aftewards he became a conservative Republican. He eventually took the cause of the right to bear arms. He also compared supporting the Second Amendment to supporting the Civil Rights Movement by saying that he was promoting “freedom in the truest sense.”

 

 

 

 

 

Chuck later became involved with the National Rifle Association, even being elected its vice-president 1997 and president 1998.

 

 

His other political activism includes serving on the advisory board of U.S. English which advocates making English the official language of the United States and opposing calls for a nuclear freeze in the late twentieth century.
