    i always liked Charlston Heston even before he became the president of the NRA. he was in a lot of great movies and had a lot of great lines. one of my favorites is when he told clinton "we dont trust you with our daughters, we sures as hell dont trust you with our guns"(or something like that).

    a very good actor and a man who seemed to have a very good sense of right and wrong.he was a great representitive for the nra during his time as president of the organization;

    In June 1998, Heston was elected president of the National Rifle Association, for which he had posed for ads holding a rifle. He delivered a jab at then-President Clinton, saying, "America doesn't trust you with our 21-year-old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don't trust you with our guns."

    Heston stepped down as NRA president in April 2003, telling members his five years in office were "quite a ride. ... I loved every minute of it."
