    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.

    Story

    The writing is superb, as one would expect. No matter your viewpoint, he will anger you, mainly by his insightful description of your self-contradictory opinions. He lambastes each side's wrong headed assertions and assumptions, then encourages individuals to rethink their own views and engage in rational discussion, rather than parroting a party line.
    Though I would add, some of this own assertions need a tad rethinking themselves.
