KMBZ'S BILL GRADY GUN STORY ON BLAST!!!
Bill Grady is the VERY DEEP VOICE that provides most of the news for KMBZ.
He has a impressive career that spans 40 years and is well respected among listeners and journalists alike in Kansas City.
However . . .
BILL GRADY'S REPORT ABOUT BUYING A BIG-ASS GUN AT THE GUN SHOW IS CREATING A GREAT DEAL OF CONTROVERSY!!!
Listen for yourself:
KMBZ tests the gun show loophole theory
The premise and what Mr. Grady proved is that with $390, a person can walk into a gun show and purchase a large caliber semi automatic rifle and no background check required.
Bottom Line Communications notes the controversy and negative reaction to the story from gun rights activists and gun dealers.
Still, knee-jerk gun reaction outrage doesn't change the facts of Mr. Grady's report. I might not get an answer on this one . . .
BUT WHY THE RAGE AGAINST A REPORTER DOING 1ST PERSON INVESTIGATION AND CITING PROOF OF HIS WORK?!?!
On this one, gun advocates lose . . . Because I trust Bill Grady and so have MILLIONS of listeners over the years.
Again, we see this gun debate falling back into the same old rituals and rhetorical devices that mark every discussion following one mass shooting after the next.
