    Here's my letter: check out their erroneous ads for it, and the story tonight, and write your own letter to them. Links at the bottom of this post.


    Dear KNBC news staff & writers:

    Your graphics and sound bites for the "ONE GUN" story are ridiculous. Even your tag line of :

    "...follows one gun on its trail of destruction through the lives of four victims here in Southern California."

    is ludicrous. A gun does not posses the ability to leave a trail of destruction. The use of the word "its" and implying "it" has victims is misusing sentiment to blame an inanimate object. Keep to the facts; horrible people committed crimes utilizing a gun. Instead, you decided to tout a photo of a gun, as if it were a mug shot, with sound bites of people placing blame on the gun? Track the people behind this gun, and I am sure you will find each of these people have tangent "trails of destruction" leading to other horrible crimes, without the gun.

    The same night you ran blurbs advertising this story, a man BEAT to death a police officer with his fists, without the use of a gun. You should change tonight's story to "ONE MAN" and follow up on this horrible individual's crimes, and his "trails of destruction".

    Ted Bundy used a knife, Jeffrey Dahmer used his teeth, and the man mentioned above killed a police officer with his fists. Whether these people had guns or not, it would not have changed the outcome. Richard Ramirez would have still killed; he just would have used a knife instead.

    Meanwhile, another story on your website that is actually more interesting than your "ONE GUN" story; titled "Ohio Woman Accused of Using Bagel to Kill Her Patient".

    Maybe you could call it "ONE BAGEL" ?
