Famed author Stephen King apparently thinks that MS-13 is a type of firearm as opposed to a murderous Latino gang.

Republican commentator Rick Wilson tweeted early Wednesday that people in Florida are “more likely to be killed…by an opioid overdose” than being murdered by MS-13.

After the school shooting that killed 17 people in Parkland, FL, Stephen King decided to respond to Wilson with an unintelligible tweet.

“Don’t tell that to the parents of the kids who got shot in Broward Country today, sport,” King wrote.

People immediately tried to figure out what King meant by his assertion. Some guessed that he thought Nikolas Cruz, the school shooter, was a member of MS-13, but most decided that King assumed MS-13 was a type of firearm.
