Heston may have been in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's but you'd have to "know" that in order to discount anything he said. His information was no more inaccurate than that which passes for fact in NRA brochures. I know; I've read them.

Moore's contention that 7 of 10 million households in Canada contain guns simply ain't right. My guess is that the vast majority (as pointed out by guest pdc) of Canadian firearms are of the "22" type or whatever you use to scare bears, ducks, beavers and visiting Yankee vacationers!!!

Cheers and keep your powder dry,
