Independence Day. The day, as a nation, we celebrate our independence and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. But in Kansas City’s urban core, celebrations are an explosive affair often lasting late into the night and involving anything with gunpowder, including weapons. It makes this newshound wonder how long it will be until another innocent bystander is injured or killed by errant gunfire, let loose by some liquored up idiot with a penchant for emptying magazines into the air. We don’t have a doctorate in physics but it’s a lead pipe cinch that what goes up must come down.
Since July 4th is this week, this news gathering pooch will be donning the Kevlar and stayin’ low for the foreseeable future, given all manner of debris will be falling from the sky for the next week.
