    I've always been a fan of King's books, and have read the Dark Tower series and The Stand twice. However, it is obvious from his writings that he knows very little about guns! Technically, he is way off base when talking about guns in his books. And I will NOT support any writer who intends to give the proceeds from a book or article to the "Brady Bunch"!!! He has a right to his opinion, and a right to contribute to whom ever he wishes--but I sure as heck don't have to "contribute" to him anymore!

    He wrote The Shawshank Redemption, which is one of the most popular films ever (as indicated on this site).

    Yep, This^^^. We have to vote with our dollars when it comes to people whom we do not officially elect. If enough people buy or don't buy a particular product they will get the message, especially if we let them know why we aren't purchasing their goods/services. He's never gotten any of my cash and now most definitely never will.

    The main character is a writer and from Maine. I have just revealed most of his books to you.

    I did like The Cell. Which was not about a writer from Maine for once or completely stupid like the one about a car. I'm sure he has a gun. He sure has a lot of cameras set up around his place in Maine.

    Well it's my choice to either read Steven King's stuff or read DC forum here. Hmmmmm.........no brainer.


    I wish I had an email address to his agent or publisher, or even to him.


    The library checks out Steven King books for free.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    He's over rated in my book. But plenty of people will read his article and agree with his viewpoint just because he wrote it.

    My thoughts exactly. I have no desire to pad the pockets of anyone who makes the kind of statements that King just did. Granted, I probably pad the pockets of like-minded individuals every day without knowing it, but for him to make such an asinine public statement assures that I won't do it on purpose.

    You're padding the pockets of like-minded individuals this tax season.

    That should be infinitely more infuriating than anything a "horror writer" says or thinks.

    I remember, years ago, he said he would stop publication of "Skeleton Crew" because he thought one of the short stories could lead to copycat killers. I thought it was ridiculous, as the evil plot was just an angry young man with a rifle in a tower on a college campus. There were a couple of really good stories, so I bought my copy at a used book store. Or was it feebay? As mentioned previously, "Different Seasons" is an awesome book, which I bought after watching "Stand By Me". I knew the book ending and movie ending had to be quite different. They are. But, yeah, I haven't bought a Stephen King book in 15 years.

    I used to like his books, especially "Needful Things". I won't be buying any more though. Same with "movie stars". If I know they are Anti-2A or extremely Liberal, I won't go to their movie. Consequently, I rarely go to movies anymore.

    I'm always annoyed to read about some author or star that I liked, speak out against things that I hold dear. It ruins ever reading or seeing anything by them again.

    They have to right to say it (or write it) and I have the right to not read it or buy it.

    I read Stephen King because I enjoy the way he writes "fiction".

    Why would I believe anything he says is real life isn't just more "fiction"? He's a writer, not a elected representative. But either case, they both deal in making fiction believable.

    He always has been a great fiction author.
