This has come up before, and the only thing I can recall about it (I think
the 10 Commandments role is a bit of a red herring) is that Heston is/was
heavily involved with the NRA (National Rifle Association) HITS.  This
Association lobbies heavily for the right to bear arms.  Don't know if
there's a connection there or not, could be.

"There are trivial truths and great truths.
The opposite of a trivial truth is plainly false.
The opposite of a great truth is also true."
