Gun Slingers

I see it a lot with our entertainment industry. I like the artist, or the author, or the roles the actors play... but I hate the people themselves. Steven King is one such - the man can write and really spin an entertaining yarn. But when he came out of the closet to crap all over gun owners, I started giving most of his books a pass. The man knew nothing about guns but like most liberals, that didn't stop him from running his mouth.

One of his best yarns was that of The Gunslinger that spanned six or seven volumes. I read them all, hating myself and Stephen King as I read them, HAR HAR HAR! Of course, when it was time to make movies of the novel... Ol' SK had to make the Gunslinger a black man to impress the lesbians, soy boys, cucks and other political turd brains he hangs out with.

This is a 'gimme' question for the gun geeks to make sure y'all pass with flying colours:

Besides trying to nigrify the Old West - what mistake did the producers 
of the movie make with this one?


  1. The swing-out cylinder in the Old West? That error was also in the books. King (who I'm sure is far from familiar with firearms) made that mistake himself. It was part of a plot contrivance with Susannah Dean. In one scene in the book, she repeatedly swings the cylinder out and back in to make sure it's loaded. I didn't bother with the movie, the previews proved that they'd screwed up the plot, but I was curious about how they'd resolve Susannah's hatred for the Gunslinger simply because he's white, when it turns out the Gunslinger isn't white.

    1. Bingo!

      And yeah, I had forgotten about the black racism in that book. If I recall, she was one big potty-mouthed ho in the story too. You didn't miss much by skipping the movie, that's for sure.

      Thanks for stopping by, guys!

  2. S. King has his own problems. Most of the early stuff was written while heavily under the influence, and the later stuff is penned by a reformed drunk.

    I, personally, don't believe that King wrote (writes?) much of his later work. My argument is quality. The original quality of the plot and characterization isn't there. I think he's using a ghost writer.
