Stephen King: NRA Should ‘Clean Up Blood, Brains and Chunks of Intestine’ After Next Massacre

“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.”

“[P]lenty 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.

Not surprisingly, there was a lot of hypocrisy in King’s piece noting “to claim that America’s ‘culture of violence’ is responsible for school shootings is tantamount to cigarette company executives declaring that environmental pollution is the chief cause of cancer.”

“It took more than one slim novel to cause [these teenagers] to do what they did,” King said.

As Slate noted, “He points out that the top 10 books and the top 10 movies in the country do very little to glorify gun violence, specifically, and also cites a slight dip in the sales of some gun-centric video games, concluding that ‘Americans have very little interest in entertainment featuring gunplay.’”

That’s not what King said in 1999 after the massacre at Columbine when he spoke at a Vermont Library Conference saying, “[T]he amp-cult atmosphere of make-believe violence in which so many children now live has to be considered part of the problem. We may like our Jackie Chan movies, Walker Texas Ranger on TV, and the ultra-violent survivalist paperback novels–not to mention the pseudo-religious novels in which the Tribulation Days promised in the Book of Revelations are depicted in gory detail–but we need to recognize that these things are hurting us, just as so many of us had to recognize that our cigarettes were hurting us, much as we enjoyed them.”

In fact, King himself had direct experience with this.

In 1977, under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, King published “Rage,” a book about a Maine high school senior who kills his algebra teacher and holds the class hostage.

In subsequent years, numerous school murders occurred around the country with the assailants saying they had gotten the idea directly or loosely from “Rage.”

    Perfect. Another clueless fucking flake. One would hope that an author as accomplished as King would do some research before spouting liberal horseshit.

    I don’t know if the following is true or not, but it’s making the rounds in email. I wouldn’t doubt the veracity, though:

    Why is it that none of the disturbed and evil men, who steal guns, then go and kill
    movie-goers and children in school, has ever been identified as a conservative NRA member?

    Ft Hood~~~Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

    Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote; both families were registered Democrats and progressive
    liberals

    Virginia Tech ~~~Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff ~ Registered Democrat

    Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign;

    Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal

    Connecticut School Shooter- ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians,

    Common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive liberal Democrats.”

    “So wrote horrible writer Stephen King….”

    Screw him. He’s been regurgitating the same tripe for years…and he gave money to the Clinton Defense Fund when the first real black President got caught having a mentally challenged chubby chick do what Hillary never would.

    I tries to see if Nancy Lanza, Adams mother, was registered as a Dem, Repub or Independent in Newtown at this site but but there was no record.

    http://www.dir.ct.gov/sots/LookUp.aspx

    She was born 09/06/1960.

    They probably have taken her name off of the voting roles which would, under normal circumstances, mean she was a Republican since dead Republicans aren’t allowed to vote.

    If she were a Democrat, under normal circumstances, she would continue to vote posthumously.

    Hey Stephen, if you care so much and it’s so damned dangerous out here, why don’t you pay out of your own pocket to publish about a billion of your regurgitated rags so we can use them as barracades and asswipe you schmuck.

    Ya know, i used to like Stephen King’s books. When I was in Jr High. After I hit about 13 or 14, I realized what juvenile pieces of formulaic crap they were.

    Whenever I see someone over the age of 20 reading one, I always make sure to speak to them very slowly, and with as many monosyllabic words as possible.

    He’s from lib land plus he was almost killed a few years ago when he was hit by a car while walking. Maybe it scrambled his brain? Who knows, personally I don’t care. Why are the pointless pontifications on subjects outside of his area of expertise supposed to be important anyhow?

    I’m sick of this crap by these idiots.

    Per Bob Beckle (and Dianne Frankenstein), 350 people killed by “Assault Weapons” since the ban was lifted out of millions sold.

    I am not saying the deaths of 350 people is not terrible, I am saying their deaths are NOT worth losing our freedom.

    Hey I have an idea for a horror story Mr. King. Let me give you the synopsis and see what you think.

    A famous writer worth millions is at a book signing when soldiers show up and arrest him as an enemy of the state. As the clueless fuck gets perped walked out of the bookstore it finally dawns on him that once citizens gave up their weapons it was only a matter of time before the authorities came for him. As he is marched to the concentration camp he sees a sign over the gate, but it says Gun Free Zone instead of Arbeit Mach Frei (German for Work Will Set You Free).

    What do you think Mr. King, its got a nice Twilight Zone kind of ending doesn’t it?

    BTW, sorry to hijack this thread. I’m severely pissed.

    Why the F is it we all have to sacrifice “For the greater good” hen it suits the lib’s philosophy? Is the sacrifice of those who lost greater than the freedom of an entire country?

    Hell no.

    The exploitation of the victims only takes away from their loss.

    most of king’s books deal with flawed heroes.
    always doubting the existence of the divine.

    though i do like one of his lines in “storm of the century”

    it’s a cash and carry world. sometimes you pay a little. mostly it’s a lot. sometimes it’s everything you have.

    When I read this story and the comments, I thought of the Roald Dahl story where people go to visit a pig processing plant, get picked up by the hook, and are processed themselves. I couldn’t help but put Mr. King in that picture as the processee.
