Farewell report

Fellow gun-control proponent M. Moore has an implicitly caustic juxtaposition at his site today of a memorial link for Charlton Heston and links to news reports of a typical day's carnage of gun violence in the U.S.

He had only the Heston link up, front and center, for a couple of days, out of apparent respect for the deceased. But Moore's broader conscience apparently kicked back into gear as he reflected upon the legacy of this former head of the National Rifle Association and weapons enthusiast.

Being at wit's end over the entire issue of gun proliferation in the U.S., I cannot say I am offended by the juxtaposition, but I can imagine that some would be; especially those who would kill to keep their guns, as Heston once said he would do.
