I value Stephen King's view on anything. He is a highly intelligent and articulate person with valuable world views. And I appreciate what the man has to say. I don't necessarily agree with his commentary on guns but I appreciate hearing his viewpoint. It does provoke thought. It did at several points feel more like a rant, but frankly with any of the opinions on gun control / gun rights, most come across as a rant.
I wouldn't have had a narrator read this. This essay was intended to be Stephen's commentary. Quite frankly using a narrator created an unnecessary dramatic effect that made it feel like a story, rather than an essay / commentary on current events. Going forward I would love to hear the author use his own voice to voice his own opinions. In my opinion, it will lend more credibility to the message he's trying to convey. Mr. Rummel did fine and has a good resonate voice that was perfect for narration. It just didn't make sense to have any narrator outside of the author himself read this essay.
