    In a pulls-no-punches essay intended to provoke rational discussion, Stephen King sets down his thoughts about gun violence in America. Anger and grief in the wake of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School are palpable in this urgent piece of writing, but no less remarkable are King's keen thoughtfulness and composure as he explores the contours of the gun-control issue and constructs his argument for what can and should be done.

    Would you listen to Guns again? Why?

    Oh yes because the author makes many good points an I would lik to go back to understand them all a bit better


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Stephen King is a gun owner and advocate, yet he admonishes the 'powers that be' for lax gun control. There is a compromise to be made here. If and when it is accepted will drastically reduce the number of lives wasted.


    What about Christian Rummel’s performance did you like?

    He was good; but I would have preferred the author in this instance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Certainly; it's short compared to other audiobooks.


    Any additional comments?

    Other than Stephen King's chronic bad language, I thought the essay was very well written. The topic is timely and the subject was well researched To me it is simple; no guns nobody dies. I realize that this is akin to closing the barn door after the horses have taken the bus back to town, but as Mr.King puts it 'how many people have to die before something, anything changes. Does it have to be in our neighbourhood, involve someone we know or love before a change is demanded?' So I think that it's about time that someone voiced an opinion that may intiate the discussion in the hope that in the not too distant future, change might be realized.
