The master of horror is horrified by the country's gun violence, which is why he's penned a lengthy essay calling for more gun control, reports
the Washington Post
"I have nothing against gun owners, sport shooters, or hunters," says Steven King in the 8,000 word Kindle
book dubbed Guns
(logically enough). "But how many have to die before we will give up these dangerous toys?"
King suggests measures to curb gun violence in the future, which include the widely
approved measure of expanding universal background checks but also banning assault weapons and magazines that that carry more than ten rounds.
The incredibly popular author, who himself once penned a story about a school shooting, asks gun proponents to engage in a bit of introspection:
"Gun advocates have to ask themselves if their zeal to protect even the outer limits of gun ownership have anything to do with preserving the Second Amendment, or if it's just a stubborn desire to hold onto what they have, and to hell with the collateral damage."
