I will let this reader's point of view speak for itself, about a story posted on KansasCity.com yesterday.

(This story) is an excellent example of someone successfully defending himself and his property with a gun. While it is mentioned in the story, it would have been far more effective if the headline read “Homeowner with gun thwarts burglary, holds suspect for police”. It would have been accurate and it would have been an example of a responsible gun owner defending themselves. I can only believe it was left out to push a particular point of view.

I’m not a “gun nut”. I do own 4 long guns for hunting, but I do not belong to the NRA. I am not opposed to a background check in all gun sales. We also need to do more on mental health issues to keep unstable people from getting a gun.

Does it seem intentional to you? It does to this reader.
