Call it the battle of the book guys, and the conservative author wins hands down.
The gun-grabbing crowd on the left wasted little time in exploiting the deaths of a Virginia news crew at the hands of a gay black man who used to work with them. Those jumping at the chance to push for gun control included President Barack Obama and best-selling author Stephen King.
King, who we last heard from in June when he went on a Twitter rant targeting the “closed minds on gun control” after the deadly church shooting in Charleston, S.C., was back at it Wednesday, posting this comment:
Two killed by gun in Virginia, on TV. Averages say that 28 more went down by gun today, for an average of 30 a day. When do we say enough?

Chris Loesch, husband of Blaze TV host Dana Loesch, responded with an astute observation, which prompted fellow best-selling author Brad Thor to weigh in, asking social media users to ask King a simple question:
I’m guessing your glasses don’t allow you to see the hand holding that gun. It didn’t act by itself. https://t.co/lLkyW9Cyj5

Ask him to address the failed liberal policies in minority communities driving so many of those shootings he cites. https://t.co/1kLctvjvBu

Based on the responses to the above tweets, it’s safe to say that the good guys — the pro-Second Amendment crowd — win hands down.
Here’s sampling of the responses from Twitter:
. @StephenKing, my friend & author @BradThor wants you to address failed liberal policies in minority communities driving these shootings.

@StephenKing The gun didn’t kill them, a murderer did. When someone uses a knife to kill, do you say “two killed by knife”?

@StephenKing When do we start locking crazy people up where they belong instead of letting them run around loose?

@StephenKing Let’s remove more rights/freedoms out of fear,another step towards totalitarianism.

@StephenKing Just as soon as you get rid of that pesky Second Amendment to the Constitution.

@BradThor @ChrisLoesch I wonder how many pedestrians were killed by cars that day…

@BradThor @ChrisLoesch I’m waiting for them to address how the grievance culture Dem politicians have been pushing contributes to violence.

@BradThor …and specifically cite any “common sense gun control law” that would have prevented this.

.@ChrisLoesch The problem is cultural rot and lack of respect for life @StephenKing, NOT guns! Stop blaming inanimate objects!

@SandraHartle @ChrisLoesch @JimW_in_NM Depravity is the problem.We are too narcissistic to state that the issue is our Godless nature.
