I know that people will say bullshit,but James Earl Jones came into the gunstore I work at and bought a gun!!
I wasn't working, during the week, he came in and ended up buying an old Colt SSA that we have had for a year or so.
He was talking about his extensive 1911 collection to the other guys that work there.
Our owner kept the surveillance tape that has him on it, and since he is a NY resident, he has his transfer paperwork in the back office!!

The down side is that fact that he is getting rather frail, and I was told that his breathing is very labored.
That is a real shame.

I hope he gets better soon.

He's always been on my good-guy list:

Yep, probably true. Hollywierd is so liberal that in order for some people to find work, they've got to keep their conservative views to themselves. Only a very select few, such as Tom Selleck etc can actually speak their pro-gun mind and still get jobs.

I wondered where JEJ had gone.  I miss him in movies and am damn proud to have him on the right side.

He was the top man on the Dark Side in the 70's and 80's.  

I nominate him as [b]Official AR15.com Narrator[/b].

He has that distinctive voice that instantly gets your attention.  Great orator.  I first saw him as a B-52 crew member in Dr. Strangelove.  Never had a reason to dislike him, unlike Danny Glover.

Oh forgot to say that, I've heard and I can't confirm officialy, that even hig-statured folks like Steven Speilberg and George Lucas has a very very extensive firearms collections, and even they don't want to upset the apple cart by publicizing that they are gun owners among the politically correct Hollywood crowd.

That is one thing about personally getting old, all those actors/actresses that you watched while growing up are passing on. He was pretty old when he did the voice for Darth Vader in the Star Wars series, and recently I still see him in commercials adverising Verizon cell-phone service. I too hope he gets better. Maybe he was just a bit under the weather.

Been a fan of his ever since I saw him in the first Conan movie. A good actor and a GREAT voice. Glad to hear he's one of the good guys...

Hard to believe he started out as a serious stutterer, & became the orator that he is. Pretty impressive in itself.

Oh? When was this? What catchphrase?

I've listened to Rush on and off since 1991, and almost daily since 1994, and I don't remember that...



Edited to add: I recently read somewhere that Steven Speilberg ownes the largest single collection of fully-automatic weapons in the civilian sector. Can someone confirm that?

If so... maybe that's his way of "cornering the market" on FA firearms to control their distribution [:D]

Just because they own full-autos doesn't mean they use them or even like them at all.  Lately full-autos have become a pretty popular investment.

The first Conan was directed by John Milius, he is a NRA Board member is the best. He played Doom, great movie, I even went out and bought the sound-track.

It is just a rumour. Who knows? One thing for sure, he certainly can affort it though.

This is great news!! I've always like James Earl Jones. Great actor and a GREAT voice!!

I doubt Speilburg is one of us. I'm pretty sure he's one of the uberliberals. It's just that he can afford an extensive Class lll collection (if the rumor is true) and it's okay because he's one of the social elite.

I have heard JEJ lives about an hour and a half north of New York City and buys a bunch of guns etc in the area.  All the local shop owners know him.

The quote I have for James Earl Jones is:
The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.

I'll second that.  But to be fair about it, you would have to label him as a Nazi prick.
