    Aaaah…and now we see why America has gained so much respect and affection on the world stage with the above comment.
    It isn’t Heston’s job to raise other people’s children, it’s not his job to put guns in easy reach either…maybe he should’ve kept his

    Hesed, you have good and logical arguments.
    But when people can obtain guns with the ” gunshow loophole .”
    When too many children have been accidentally shot.
    When I read that Charlton Heston said that America ‘s ” problem ”
    is ” our mixed ethnicity
