Author Stephen King: ‘Innocent Blood Will Continue to Flow’ Until Gun Control is Passed

Outspoken gun-control advocate and prolific horror author Stephen King called for tougher gun laws in the wake of the mass shooting at a historic church in Charleston, South Carolina this week.

King took to twitter Thursday to voice his frustration with the country’s pro-Second Amendment position.

    King’s opinion is, as usual, based on total ignorance of firearms. Not only doesn’t he know one end from the other, he apparently is too cheap to even hire a proofreader who knows a semi-auto from a revolver, to name one common confusion that runs throughout his work. Read NEEDFUL THINGS, where a revolver magically morphs into a gun with a slide …. or THE STAND, where the egregious gun goofs are too numerous to list. I noted about 15 or 20 dumb mistakes on the title page, and then just gave up (though the constant appearance of a “Colt Woodsman in .38 caliber” sticks out in my mind. Another novel, whose name I can’t recall, had someone carrying a double-barrel shotgun, broken open, in his car, but then shortly thereafter he racked the slide on it. Huh????

    This is not a man who has any business even handling a firearm without close adult supervision, yet he presumes to have an actual OPINION on the subject? The sheer arrogance is astounding.

    In Kings latest book “Finders Keepers” within the first few pages an aging writer is gunned down by a disgruntled fan. Later in the book this same degenerate steals a handgun from its lawful owner and kills said owner with the stolen handgun and goes on to shoot an innocent woman in the head.
    It is fiction of course but like so many liberals screaming “better gun control” they, at the same time are making money off of fictional gun violence. Talk about calling the kettle black.
    King is one of America’s best writers in the horror/supernatural genre. I don’t have to like his politics to be able enjoy his novels but maybe he should pull his head out of his ass and realize that if the laws on the books were vigorously enforced perhaps some of violence would cease. We don’t need famous people speaking from their ivory towers with their opinions. If they are not part of the solution they are part of the problem.

    So well spoken and expected from a person that does like to do his killing with an automobile.
    Look it up.
    He needs to stick to writing about what he knows, horror from drug induced dreams and hallucinations and vehicular manslaughter.

    So sad to see such a great author be so ignorant. If you hang out on Bloomberg you will get programmed to be anti-gun. I wish he’d go examine the “facts” that he has based his beliefs on, but that would require an open mind. The best quote that I read was when someone posted “I carry a gun because I can’t carry a cop.” Smart people defend themselves from the criminals and psychos who do run around armed, and who don’t care about laws.

    Unfortunately criminals will always be able to get guns. Thats what people dont understand. If drugs and other illegal things get into this country what makes you think that guns wont? Only law abiding citizens will get their firearms taken away. How is that fair. How will we protect our families , what call the police? They have their own problems right now.

    The Federal Government can censor all media and specifically movies and books. This can also be imposed by State and local governments. If governments at any level took a stance and actions to censor and eliminate violence from books, movies and video games, Spielberg and his anti gun cronies would squeal like pigs. They would cry, we have a First Ammendment Rights. Government says people mimic what the read and see in violent books, movies and video games. It degrades the quality of life, people with weak minds confuse fiction from reality, endangers and offends the general population, it fosters injurious anti social behavior and copy cat acts of violence. If a person perpatrates violent or criminal acts based on the ideas and content of movies, books or video games; the originators and all persons and businesses involved in its production, manufacture and distribution can be criminally charged for assisting in the planning of a unlawful act and may also be sued in Civil Court. These common sense laws will protect our children, reduce comunity violence and allow children and adults to engage in activities more social acceptable. What would the Spielbergs and Hollywoods anti gun bigots say? These are but a few of the thing they want done to restrict and eliminate our Second Ammendment Rights. As said before: if you destroy the Second Ammendment the others will soon fall. History is full of examples of goverments confiscating guns, then comes censorship and criminalization of freedoms with worse to come.

    JUST GOT TO POLITICIZE A TRAGEDY, Don’t you, Mr. King. Think you are better than other people! SHAME ON YOU!!!!
    Another reason His movies will never get a penny from me. But besides that, I am pretty sure he is WAY wrong about the gun deaths exceeding vehicle deaths….in ANY YEAR. Using a Bloomberg site for statistics…??? Really?

    Yet again, lefty-commies not understanding that it takes FORCE to stop FORCE. Its Simple Physics. If an armed citizen would have been in the church, there highly LIKELY would have been less victims. Very sad that was not the situation. Prayers for the victims families.

      …I should have said/included his books…..not making any money from me…..since he is an author, not a movie maker.

        That statement is what they use for ammo. You’re a tard that can’t read a book and you’re asking for respect? “I’m an idiot that let’s everyone know I’m illiterate”. The opposition uses statement from stupid people that say smart things to void what they said and you have played right into that.

    I guess Stephen King and the rest of Hollywood will give up on the use of guns and stick to caveman movies

      You are full of crap Mr. King. Gun control helped get those people killed. First off the perp had a record and should not have been able to buy a gun. Did the law (gun control) work there? Second since most Churches are gun free zones no one there had a firearm to protect themselves. Did the law (gun control) work there? You people are fools who think gun control is the answer. Only law abiding citizens will adhere to the law(gun control). WAKE UP PEOPLE!

      The boy that did the shooting didn’t try to fight the police at all because he didn’t want to die. He is a coward and knows that men with guns will kill a man like him for fantasizing of killing people. He knew that democratic black folks wouldn’t have guns. People like him persist when there is no lion to protect the herd. There was no man of courage there. No one even attempted to stop him. They let him reload FIVE F*CKING TIMES. He isn’t tactically sound and you could have gotten him in the exchange but all of you tucked tail and ran. GOD HATES A COWARD. That is all he hates. Cowardice. You didn’t protect the people in your church. None of you even tried. All of you should be ashamed. Then you call out “White America” because you DIDN’T have any guns. Well we do and no one shoots up our church and if they did they would get half a mag of before they were ended by either myself or someone else. We wouldn’t hesitate to end that hatred. They died because guns are present in the world and they didn’t have one to make the sides equal. GUNS WERE MADE BECAUSE MAN IS EVIL. Mr. King, I’m a very large man that doesn’t own a lot and I see you do own quite a bit. I’m very large and were trained to go beyond the normal person’s obstacles of fear, of not having knowledge, and having lethal training, and getting physically tired. How are you going to stop me from kicking down your door and taking your wife right in front of you. With no gun in your hand I could take, in a matter of minutes, what you worked a whole lifetime for. Without guns there is no equality or justice. The fact is people that are scared want guns gone. People with balls want other people to have guns so it’s a fair fight. There are good men but so many of them are cowards. So they whine because they won’t train to be effective against bad people. You may train a whole life and never need it. But to have it and not need it…………..you’re a smart man. Figure the rest out.
