My Review of Stephen King's Essay on Guns

I am a huge Stephen King fan. The truth is that I was inspired to write after reading Christine. He is my favorite writer and not just horror. While Guns was well written, and I expected nothing less, it sent the wrong message. Not just one part of the book, but the entire thing was off.

Stephen King first speaks about Rage and why he felt it necessary to pull it from circulation. Whether or not he should have pulled it is debatable, but at the end of the day he found it to be a blueprint for high school shootings. Whether or not we need a book like that out there again, is completely debatable. The book didn't kill anyone, nor did it make someone commit a crime that they ordinarily wouldn't have.

To restrict the amount of ammo that can be held in a magazine, or any other type of gun control is unconstitutional and shouldn't even be considered. King tried to avoid the politics of the issue in his essay, and I can understand why he would. However, this issue is completely political and cannot be explained properly without that being the driving force of the point.

They are not trying to outright take the guns, yet! But, they will strengthen gun laws and locate the guns. Once they know where to find them they'll round them up. They'll leave you vulnerable and defenseless. There is a more sinister plan that follows, but I'm not going to get into that in this review. Look up FEMA Camps and a lot of this will make sense.


Our right to gun ownership is being threatened by a couple of shootings that have a ton of questions surrounding them. Lies and coverups have surrounded both cases. It's odd to me that so many lies have been told, and we are talking about an elementary school shooting. The truth should have been easy to tell and no reason to lie and withhold information. The news outlets do not have to report the truth, and they don't.

We are experiencing some of the toughest times in American history. Now is not the time to take anything away, but there is never a right time to be constitutionally violated. You have to stand up for your rights, because your government isn't doing that. If you give up your're giving up your freedom at the same time.
