I guess mine would be Samual Adams or Thomas Jefferson:

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." --Samuel Adams

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” –Thomas Jefferson

But in out modern world...it's hands down Charleton Heston

Charlton Heston means well, but my vote is for Neal Knox. Wayne Lapierre and his gang, while very competent in their own way, have transformed the NRA into their own personal racket. They spend member dollars demonizing Neal, while printing ads coincidentally across from the election ballot in the magazine telling the membership how to vote in the board elections. If I remember right, this year they even had their "advice" printed directly on the ballot itself. Neal may not have movie-star status, but he sure knows what the Second Amendment is really about and doesn't have memory lapses like Wayne did after Columbine.

TODAY:  kind of a toss-up between Chuch Heston and the NRA gang (they're at it everyday which is more than I can say for myself) and Tom Selleck (for a couple of reasons, he didn't waffle or bend under duress and he's still (sorta) a household name)

ALL TIME:  Every freaking one of the founding fathers because they all believed in the 2nd wholeheartedly, not this pick-and-choose crap that current politicos are driveling about.

Let's see.   How about Ron Paul. Helen Chenoweth was good, but kept her self-imposed term limit.  Or Bob Barr, perhaps, though I'm not too sure about him.   Ted Nugent stands out.

Ditto on Neal Knox.   Also Larry Pratt.

Anybody who's got the guts to stand up to the commie pinko socialist freedom-hating gun-grabbing crowd. Extra points for actually winning an argument with said assholes.

Bubbles...'cause she's lot's cuter than those old guys y'all have named. [:D]

Neil Knox...I like his hard line, no comprimise positions.

My personal fovorites are all the individuals who take time out of their lives to spread the word, to notify others, and encourage others to attend state public hearings, to write letters to legislators etc.. "It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in the peoples minds..." -Samual Adams [sniper]

Rosie O'Donnel!
When she showed what a shrill harpy she was going after Mr. Selleck, I think she hurts her cause with her hypocrisy and contradictions.
