A study finds that over 11-thousand guns in Missouri were reported stolen over five years.



It’s a new study that was released by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. They traced stolen weapons from 2017 through 2021 and found that over 11-thousand guns were reported stolen in Missouri. The study found that 96 percent of firearms reported stolen were owned by private citizens. The study also found that Missouri ranked ninth among the 50 states in firearms reported stolen.

Thefts and burglaries from federally licensed gun stores are reportedly trending down. KMBC-TV reports that the gun Lyndell Mays used to fire the first shots at the Chiefs Super Bowl parade was stolen.

My previous jobs have taught me the importance of news. My last job I had the opportunity to run a news department in Alaska. There, I learned that people didn’t watch the television or read the newspaper, they only had access to the radio, in fact they depended on it for their daily living. Because news is so important when people still depend on broadcast radio, I learned the importance of reporting with accuracy, honesty and doing so without setting some sort of agenda.
