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.
