The Stephen King eBook ‘Guns’

Famed author Stephen King has published an eBook called ‘Guns’ to discuss the gun control issue.

No link given here, but here’s the blurb on Amazon:

In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King’s keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

Seems almost reasonable, and definitely a possibility for “rational discussion.”

But then there’s this:

King’s earnings from the sale of this essay will go the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Whoops. One doesn’t have to know anything about King’s politics (which are very Liberal) or know what his stance on gun control is (he apparently favors a total ban on semi-autos) to realize which way his breeze is blowing on this.

Don’t buy this eBook unless you want to put money in the pockets of the Brady Bunch.

It’s almost like Stephen King is totally full of shit.

    I’ve been putting forth the proposition that the reason we have so much violence in our society is because of the blue-model breakup of the family, where the lefties in power kept trying to expand more welfare to single moms, etc. Boys growing up without a strong father figure to steer them straight are mostly going to be bad news. I’ve known a number of single moms raising sons, and almost without exception the sons rule the household from an early age. Those boys do stuff that would earn them a smackdown from any father worth his salt, thereby reinforcing the lesson to not do that wrong behavior again. The moms seem mostly indoctrinated with the “do not spank” BS which also means “do not discipline under any circumstances.”

    Of course the lefty media would never even consider looking into that, for fear that my thesis is right.

    No one should be surprised. Stephen King has always been a true-believer left-wing crank.
