Stephen King: NRA Should 'Clean Up Blood, Brains and Chunks of Intestine' After Next Massacre
NewsBusters ^ | January 26, 2013 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 01/27/2013 2:48:34 PM PST by plain talk

"One only wishes Wayne LaPierre and his NRA board of directors could be drafted to some of these [violent] scenes, where they would be required to put on booties and rubber gloves and help clean up the blood, the brains, and the chunks of intestine still containing the poor wads of half-digested food that were some innocent bystander’s last meal."

So wrote horror writer Stephen King in a Kindle essay Friday entitled "Guns."

"Plenty of gun advocates cling to their semi-automatics the way Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson clung to the shit that was killing them," King wrote in his 25-page essay.

Hollywood types and writers deal primarily in emotion. It would be fruitless to expect an expression of their response to ANYTHING based on logic and rational thinking.

Fortunately for America, our founding fathers were capable of taming their emotions and building a country based on logic, rational thinking, an awareness of human weakness, and the eternal need for integrity and wholeness (holiness).

King wrote in his 25-page essay.

As an accomplished writer, clearly he has the skills to make a concise argument.

WHAT THE CRAP!!

Stephen King wrote one of his creepy novels about a school shooting WAY BEFORE any kid decided to do it.

King even admitted to how bad he felt thinking that his piece of fiction may have contributed to school shootings.

So, we must conclude that his fashioning of the NRA as being to blame is actually another piece of his crappy fiction.

He writes this way because he doesn’t understand Christianity - he stabs at it, puts it under the monocle, writes epic books about it, but doesn’t understand it. He wants to, sorta.

His ego prevents him from deigning to understand. Someday he’ll wake up.

This from Mr. Issues who pulled his good short story “Rage” (written as Richard Bachman) off shelves after Columbine. Yet who’s wrote other books where hero thwarts evil with firepower. Somehow feeling guilty as if literary fiction is to blame for society’s ills? What about the nightmares you’ve caused from horror fiction then? Now this gun blather. Doesn’t make sense, sounds like personal issues to me and kissing his boy Zero’s bum.

The motion picture industry, like the music industry, sees nothing wrong with their products influencing millions of teens and pre-adolescents. As we know, society’s problems are multi-faceted and surely music, TV, movies, violent video games, etc. are a huge portion of the equation when it comes to the corruption of American youth. There’s a strong correlation, if not cause and effect, with the amount of time spent engaging and interacting with these variables and the resulting behavior of its participants.

Rhetorical question: If advertising (TV, movies, etc.) doesn’t “work” why do companies spend millions of dollars on advertising during the Super Bowl and other programming?

Finally, Mr. King and other entertainment figures, feel no responsibility whatsoever for their role in society’s downfall. After all, he’s rich and above the average person; that’s why he can ‘stand and deliver’ to us who are not in that category (rich).

I will not read Stephen King’s 25 page essay having already foolishly polluted my brain by reading a couple of his novels decades ago. King falls into the category of liberal I think of as the nasty, spiteful, hate-filled liberal... similar to Bill Maher. His twisted characterizations of conservatives and gun enthusiasts are just as murky and foul as the non-stop profane epithets that spew from his mouth.

OK. The NRA will be busy a couple of days every few years..

but by now King must have responded to the proposition that in return he must clean up the remains of victims who did not have a gun to defend themselves.. that's a 24/7 task even if you omit Chicago!

Many of us have been in the military, some of us have been in Fire Departments and Rescue Squads, Some work in hospitals.

We have cleaned up blood, gore, brains, before Mr. King, cleaned Urine and sh*t too, What have you ever done Mr. King?

I looked in your biography and didn’t see where you ever served I didn’t see where you did anything other than write about Gore and Blood or see it used as make-up. I can tell you it is different when you get your hands dirty, and many of us have.

STEPHEN KING IS ONE THE LIBERALS RUNNING YOUR COUNTRY

Think about that while you're job hunting.

And also consider: King is demanding higher taxes even as he moved to Florida (a low tax land) from Maine (a land of 1000 taxes).

Deflection. He wants to keep the gun control wackos focused on guns while he writes his bizarre crap. Actually I like some of his sick stuff but I have some unusual tastes sometimes. :-) But his politics and ethics suck.

Here is one of Stephen King’s statements off wiki bashing the military

“... A controversy emerged on May 5, 2008, when a conservative blogger posted a clip of King at a Library of Congress reading event. King, talking to high-school students, had said: “If you can read, you can walk into a job later on. If you don’t, then you’ve got the Army, Iraq, I don’t know, something like that.””

Stephen King, horror writer, has much more to do with massacres than anything the NRA ever did. The NRA has prevented genocides and will help preserve the Republic.

There’s something really wrong with the guy. If you pick up one of his more recent books, you can’t get past the first chapter without some kind of anti-Bush, pro-Obama remark. In one of them, a sympathetic character had a portrait of Obama on the wall.

Liberals get meaner and crazier as they age.

Dear Mr. King,

The NRA isn’t welcome in schools. Actually most schools want to have as little to do with the NRA as possible, even going to the lengths of prohibiting the Eddie Eagle message from being told there.

You’ll have to think of somebody else.

Somebody who might have had something to do with the massacres. Like, say, the authors of the “Safe Schools Act.”

Sincerely,
Coloradan

Not just any old violent images either. This is the man who wrote a novel with a young school shooter as the protagonist, years before it caught on as a national craze:

“Rage (originally titled Getting It On) is the first novel by Stephen King published under the pseudonym Richard Bachman in 1977.

...

Charlie Decker, a Maine high school senior, is called to a meeting with his principal over a previous incident in which Decker attacked his chemistry teacher with a heavy wrench. For unknown reasons, Charlie subjects the principal to a series of insulting remarks, resulting in his expulsion. Charlie storms out of the office and retrieves a pistol from his locker, setting its contents on fire. He then returns to his classroom and fatally shoots his Algebra teacher. The fire triggers an alarm, but Charlie forces his classmates to stay in the classroom, killing another teacher when he enters. As the students and teachers evacuate the school, police and media arrive at the scene.

...

The novel’s plot vaguely resembles actual events that have transpired since the book’s publication, to a degree that the author is no longer comfortable with the book being in print for fear that it may inspire similar occurrences (”[Rage is] now out of print.”[1]) as it had already been associated with incidents of high school shootings and hostage takings”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rage_%28Stephen_King_novel%29

Several actual school shooters were discovered to have had copies of the book or were known to have been fans of it. So, maybe King has a guilty conscience, since the shootings haven’t stopped even though he stopped printing his book that may have inspired the phenomenon.

King is well known for writing way too much and never knowing when to stop. Just look at “The Stand”, it’s over 800 pages long in the original, and then he released an “uncut” version with nearly 400 more pages that his editors had made him drop.

Steven King is an idiot with money. He writes his form of cheap gore for cash and I would bet that somewhere in America some jackass mental head is reading it rather than taking his psychotropic drugs. Perhaps you might need some therapy to go along with your flawed logic base. Thanks for telling some thug that you have a spoon to defend yourself. You might end up being the subject of a book someday. Idiot.

King is a 'former' drug & alcohol addict who was forced into rehab by his family.
(Protect the cash cow?)
All he does is sit in a room & write, his wife (a MONGO Libtard!) handles all his business transactions.
Based on all about him thats out there, he gets to use what balls he has when his wife lets him.
