Charlton Heston: You can take my guns now

Legendary actor Charlton Heston passed away Saturday evening at the age of 84. He had been battling Alzheimer’s disease for the past six years, according to the AP:

“Charlton Heston was seen by the world as larger than life,” Heston’s family said in a statement. “We knew him as an adoring husband, a kind and devoted father, and a gentle grandfather with an infectious sense of humor. He served these far greater roles with tremendous faith, courage and dignity.”
The actor died at his home in Beverly Hills with his wife, Lydia, at his side, family spokesman Bill Powers said. He declined to comment on the cause of death or provide further details Sunday.

I like to believe somewhere in the hereafter Charlton Heston is doing what he loves best: Hunting damn, dirty apes with an Uzi. Rest in Peace, Moses. You were one of the greats.

Twenty-one gun salute after the jump. Or maybe just a trailer mash-up of The Ten Commandments if you want to get technical.
