Past NRA President Heston is the 18th member of Post Office's Legends of Charlton Heston will be the 18th stamp in the Legends of Hollywood seriesHollywood stamp series

Fairfax, Virginia - At the NRA's 127 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, Charlton Heston was elected President of the National Rifle Association. A World War II veteran, Oscar winning actor, and heralded civil rights activist, Heston led the NRA for an unprecedented six years.

An icon to supporters of the Second Amendment, his address at the 2000 Annual Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, with a flintlock rifle raised above his head, still brings chills to this day:

So, 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, Mr. Gore: 'From my cold, dead hands.'

The fakes of February

A fake Colt Paterson revolver kept under wraps at the NRA National Firearms Museum

Fairfax, Virginia - To most casual viewers, the above pistol appears to be a Texas Belt Model Colt Patterson. There's the telltale long tailed barrel, the distinctive shape and an aging that suggest we're talking about a 170 year old gun here.

Fairfax, Virginia - As responsible gun owners, we know that our mission is clear: to preserve our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
