That said, the final line might make its own nice poster:
Fight not to make a last stand.
Fight to win.

How about a progression from a light background Brown Bess Musket with progressivly darker or brighter images thru a civil war percussion lock musket, a 1903 springfield, M1 garand, M14 to the photo of the ar.
this would show that the modern arms of each day in history were used to support the BOR.

Our forebears used the best they had; So will we.

Today we have better weapons
Fight to win

In the background of that pic, have the Twin Towers with the AR in the foreground
Behind the picture all it say's is "911" in large letters
Below it say's " Modern Theats Require Modern Weapons"
FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS

But you forget, it's BLACK and anti's are bigots, and are against blacks... regardless if it's only a tool...

"Don't wait until it's too late"
In all our history, we've faced challenges. Recently, they've just taken a new and different form. Somehow you need to tie the darker times and challenges of the past into the ones of the present.
I remember seeing the NRA special about confiscation in England and Australia. I signed my wife up for the NRA the same day.
I'm getting an AR, and putting one on a poster is OK to rally our guys but, if you want something to reach the masses, you might ratchet it down a little. Nice thing about the musket is the link to the past.

I think I remember a poster formated like that with an upraised arm ith an AK-47 that said : Viva Revolution or Che! or "throw Off Your Oppressors" . How about : "No More Wacos":scrutiny:

I like the original idea, but would offer the following...
A man once held a musket and uttered the immortal words "from my cold dead hands"
Insert Modern Firearm pic here
The weapon may have evolved, but the meaning remains as clear as the day it was spoken!

Actually, Heston held up a RIFLE, not a musket, IIRC.
