In a stunning act of stupidity, horror author Stephen King posted a Tweet alluding that the violent criminal gang MS-13 is a firearm, and was used in this week’s Florida school shooting that left at least 17 dead.
The now-deleted Tweet was made in response to well-known Never Trumper Rick Wilson, who was attempting to make a jab against the President, stating that “you’re a hell of a lot more likely to be killed in FL by an opioid overdose than MS-13.”
King fired back, telling Wilson “Don’t tell that to the parents of the kids who got shot in Broward County today,” conflating MS-13 with AR-15, which was the weapon used by the school shooter in Florida.
The school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School outside of Boca Raton, FL ended in the deaths of at least 17 people, according to law enforcement.

Massachusetts Gun Store Remaining Open in Defiance of Governor’s “Non-Essential” Declaration
The Gunrunner isn’t closing its doors.
A Massachusetts gun store is remaining open even after Governor Charlie Baker labeled firearm retail establishments “non-essential” and directive them to close under the commonwealth’s state of emergency declaration.
John Costa, owner of The Gunrunner in Middleboro, believes that the Second Amendment provides his gun store with authorization to remain open.
Costa explained that “under the second amendment we have every right to defend ourselves,” justifying the operations of The Gunrunner. Business has been booming at the store according to Costa, with unprecedented amounts of gun purchasers patronizing the establishment despite Baker’s command that they stay away.
Baker expressed discontent at a Wednesday press conference upon learning that some gun stores in the commonwealth were remaining open.
“They shouldn’t have been open last week. The only folks on the firearm side that have been essential been in Massachusetts since we issued the initial order are manufacturers.”
Costa is practicing social distancing measures, as well. He’s not even letting customers to enter the physical space of his store. Instead, potential gun buyers are describing the kind of gun they want for Costa to bring it out to them curbside. It’s hard to imagine more stringent social distancing measures being utilized by any business, but it’s not good enough for the commonwealth of Massachusetts.
The store has received a cease-and-desist order from town officials after declining to close in accordance with state directives. Gun stores aren’t included as essential retailers in the proclamation issued by Massachusetts’ nominally Republican governor, and he’s going to greater lengths to close them than progressive Democrats in states such as New Jersey and California. Governors and sheriffs in both states caved when the Trump administration declared firearms retailers to be essential businesses under updated DHS guidelines, but Baker is steadfast in insisting that gun retailers close.
Americans have shattered previous monthly records for firearms purchases during the month of March, showing a desire to lawfully acquire arms that correlates sharply with the coronavirus epidemic. With an unprecedented demand for guns among the public, policy makers should think twice about arbitrarily demanding the industry shut down.
