NRA and Hollywood: From Charlton to Chuck

Friday, May 14, 2010

From one screen legend to another, the NRA Convention is back in Charlotte 10 years after Charlton Heston’s memorable appearance and hoping actor Chuck Norris can pack the same star power for Second Amendment rights.

Now it’s martial artist turned activist, Norris’ turn. Not yet the president, or even a spokesperson, Norris says he’s honored to head up the group’s national voter registration drive. His admiration for Heston is obvious. “Chuck Heston was a man I deeply respected. He was gracious to everyone he met and was a great patriot. He will always be remembered.”
