Former NRA president Charlton Heston to get US Post Office stamp
The Daily Caller ^ | 2/22/2014 | Mike Picionne

Posted on 02/23/2014 6:53:10 AM PST by diverteach

The United States Postal Service has announced that former NRA President Charlton Heston will be honored with his own stamp. The stamp is part of their “Legends of Hollywood” series, and while the specific issue date has not yet determined, it will be issued sometime in 2014.

Heston was a five term president of the National Rifle Association from 1998 to 2003. He was a tireless advocate for Second Amendment rights and will always be remembered by the NRA faithful for his “cold, dead hands” speech delivered at the 2000 NRA Annual Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The speech was directed to then presidential candidate Al Gore.

I hope they use a picture of him from when he was young. They did it for the Elvis stamps.

Hopefully this will be a sell out quickly. I plan to get mine as soon as offered. Will make sure this year’s NRA Christmas Cards are posted with these stamps too.

It’s the “Legends of Hollywood” series, not the “Legends of the NRA”. I can’t think of too many Hollywood stars more deserving of a stamp under those circumstances. Certainly more deserving than Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, or Bette Davis.

Good idea. I use my Reagan stamps for things I mail to liberals.

I also seem to recall a photo of him marching for civil rights (for blacks). THAT would make liberals heads spin, too.

Heston walked the walk and talked the talk. He marched with MLK when it was not fashionable for Hollywood white folks to do so. Ironically he is vilified by the revisionists of the Civil Rights movement and Democrats. It does show that gun grabbers and those currently making and espousing laws for more gun control are nothing more than communists and hypocrites.

Former Supreme Court Justice Stevens wants to Rewrite Second Amendment

Posted on February 22, 2014 by Gary DeMar

John Paul Stevens served on the Supreme Court from 1975 to 2010, the second longest tenure of all Supreme Court justices. Fortunately for freedom-loving Americans, he can’t do any more damage. Of course, this hasn’t stopped the present crop of justices from significantly remaking America into their own misguided image.

His latest book, Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, is an inside look into the mind of a Supreme Court Justice, and it’s not a pretty sight. Stevens has been described as a “Midwest Republican conservative” that became a “hero of the political left.”

In his book, Stevens proposes that the Second Amendment be changed from this . . .

“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.”

. . . to this:

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

Stevens shows by his call for the addition of “when serving in the militia” that the original meaning referred to private citizens (people) and not only people serving in the military....

I think we need a Cecil B. DeMille stamp, too.

I can’t think of too many Hollywood stars more deserving of a stamp ...
C'mon, how soon we forget Hollyweird's latest victim and superhero... Throw in a special Oscar next week, plus a 10 minute standing ovation, accolades out the wazoo ... oh, that poooooor man.

Moses and Ben Hur, sure. But I think his best role was as Amos Dundee in Major Dundee. And president of the NRA.

A bit off-topic:

Does anyone else remember sending letters hom from VietNam and writing "FREE" in the stamp area on them?

I have some I sent to my folks with that on them and some from buddies in Nam that I received.
Maybe "collectors" items some day?

Also:
Do troops in war zones currently get to do this?
I do not know.
