Stephen King Coughs Up $$$ For Gun Control

Stephen King, who made his views about gun control clear earlier this year in a passionate essay describing automatic and semi-automatic firearms as “weapons of mass destruction”, has gone right ahead and made a “substantial” donation to a Maine group advocating limitations on gun ownership. The Coalition for a Safer Maine supports legislation calling for greater background checks on gun owners, a ban on the size of magazines that can be sold and a strengthening of the prohibition of the sale of guns to those judged to be mentally ill. It said in a statement on its website that it had received a “substantial donation” from King and his wife (and fellow author) Tabitha King, and that the couple backed its support of gun control legislation.
