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 have a ton of questions surrounding them. Lies and coverups have

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.
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
guns...you're giving up your freedom at the same time.
