Rick Wilson remarks on MS-13, Stephen King ignorantly responds as though it’s a firearm

On Wednesday, anti-Trump Republican commentator Rick Wilson made a remark on social media about the violent MS-13 street gang which elicited a moronic response from leftist author Stephen King, who apparently believes that MS-13 is a gun.

Rick Wilson tweeted: “You’re a hell of a lot more likely to be killed in FL by an opioid overdose than MS-13. But muh base.”

King responded as though Wilson was speaking about Wednesday’s tragic shooting and he somehow thought MS-13 was a firearm.

“Don’t tell that to the parents of the kids who got shot in Broward County today, sport.” – @StephenKing

Later, he tweeted: “More apt to be killed by opoids, no doubt, but maybe don’t tell that to the kids who got shot in Broward County today. Or their horrified, grieving parents.”

King spent the subsequent time attacking Trump, gun owners:

Trump tweeted: “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school.”

King’s response: “See? See? What’d I tellya? Here’s Blabbermouth Don, just praying his fat ass off! (As if.)”

King re-tweeted a ban AR-15 tweet, a profanity ladened attack from John Cusask with a photo of Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell: “And grab as much money as they can while supporting enabling a fascist.. treasonous fucks -wont even investigate or do anything about having free elections just shoving money up their asses” – Cusack.

King offered up this insight this morning: “The 2nd Amendment extremists will never be swayed from their hardline position. The only way to enact sane gun regs is at the ballot box. If you feel that way, it’s simple: if they take money from the NRA, don’t vote for ’em in November.”

In 2013, King penned a 25-page article titled “Guns,” confessing that he owns three handguns “with a clear conscience.”

He wrote: “it took more than one slim novel to cause (the shooters) to do what they did. These were unhappy boys with deep psychological problems, boys who were bullied at school and bruised at home by parental neglect or outright abuse.”

All, he notes, had easy access to guns.

“No one wants to take away your hunting rifles. No one wants to take away your shotguns. No one wants to take away your revolvers, and no one wants to take away your automatic pistols, as long as said pistols hold no more than ten rounds. If you can’t kill a home invader (or your wife, up in the middle of the night to get a snack from the fridge) with ten shots, you need to go back to the local shooting range.”

And he asks:

“How paranoid do you want to be? How many guns does it take to make you feel safe? And how do you simultaneously keep them loaded and close at hand, but still out of reach of your inquisitive children or grandchildren? Are you sure you wouldn’t do better with a really good burglar alarm? It’s true you have to remember to set the darn thing before you go to bed, but think of this — if you happened to mistake your wife or live-in partner for a crazed drug addict, you couldn’t shoot her with a burglar alarm.”
