Nation IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON STATE

May 04, 1997|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Swarmed by autograph seekers and admirers, actor Charlton Heston easily won a National Rifle Assn. board election, a key test for the gun lobby's embattled leadership. Heston, 72, worked the aisles like a veteran politician as voting began at a tumultuous membership meeting on the second day of the NRA's annual convention.
