Stephen King – one of the Rights Bigots

stephen kingThe Ten Ring asked his wife (a former blogger) to respond to writer Stephen King’s screed (now available on Kindle) with regard to guns, gun rights, gun ownership, and the character of American gun owners.

The telling passage:

Style and mistakes aside, King tries to add to the national dialog about gun violence.  The last section of this short work, lists policy ideas that might cut down on gun violence.  One notion is a ban on “assault weapons” but he loses his argument when he gets too cute by half, honey.

King justifies calling for such a ban by insulting owners of semi-automatics (a gun that fires one round per trigger pull).  He says that the owners only use these guns to fire as fast as they can while yelling yeehaw and getting horny…

Can you say ignorance and outright bigotry?

Can you imagine if he downplayed or maligned any other groups’ rights or actions in this manner?  Said group would have his head on a pike!

Of course, as responsible firearms owners, we must show restraint in our response, lest we provide more ammunition for bigots like King.

In the pervasive environment of political correctness, it’s never appropriate to malign Blacks, gays, women, other religions, other individual ethnic groups or classes.  And, of course, it shouldn’t be.

But apparently legitimate gun owners are still okay to target.  With such moronic comments as he made above.

I’ve enjoyed a number of Mr. King’s books, and films made from them.  He can be a great writer.  AND, he’s allowed his opinions.  And I mine.

He’s a bigoted idiot.

    PC Bullshit. Where has that gotten us anyway after all these years?
    Restraint is not punching his nose out the back of his head. Telling him he can go f*ck himself is entirely appropriate.

    • Perhaps.
      But, then he’d just say we were violent.
      (not that his opinion matters)

      • Exactly – we need to be firm and assertive while maintaining our dignity and not reducing our arguments effectiveness by the gratuitous use of profanity or threats, implicit or implied. Clearly, calmly, and definitively stating facts generally reduces the hoplophobes to the sputtering name calling class………………we don’t need to join them.
        Stay classy my friends ;-)

  2. I, for one, will not buy anymore of his work (I used to be a fan). In response, I suggest we flood his email with copies of Larry Correia’s excellent eviceration of the gun control argument.

  4. His millions were built off of violence. The written kind, but violence nonetheless. What a hypocrite. I quit buying his books some time ago.

  5. I’ve yet to meet a liberal who can actually defend their positions logically. As a consequence, name calling and nastiness is how they define winning an argument.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
