Today seemed liked an especially appropriate day for a thank you:
In no particular order, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the following people who have made this website exceed my highest hopes. While the list is largely unchanged since last year’s thank you post, the sentiment behind it is as current and genuine as can be.
- Those who have emailed me suggestions.
There are a few readers of this website who consistently email me suggestions for article topics. Some of these suggestions are links to stories in the news, while other are suggestions to write about a particular abstract reason to support gun rights. Even when I don’t end up immediately writing an article that directly relates to the suggestion, that suggestion may make its way into an article weeks or months later.
- My Fiancé.
She has been kind enough to proofread some of my articles for typos that spell check won’t catch, and to serve as a sounding board for my pro gun rights opinions. Not to mention the various desserts that she has baked and brought over to my computer as I write these articles. I’m also happy to note that this is the final Thanksgiving when I will refer to her as my fiancé, since we are getting married October 16, 2010
- Those who have sent me emails saying that they have decided to become gun owners.
I get emails from individuals who have found this website after deciding to consider gun ownership. Unfortunately, many of these individuals have decided to become gun owners only after they or a loved one suffered at the hands of a violent criminal. While it is sad to hear about the losses they have suffered due to criminals, it brings me a great sense of satisfaction to know that my website is helping people to prevent themselves from being victimized by criminals in the future.
- Those who have donated.
A few people have made kind donations which help offset the cost of hosting this website.
- Everyone who has visited this website.
Although writing about gun rights helps me to hone the arguments I use when debating gun rights in person, the main benefit is having my writings read by visitors to this website. It is truly an honor to have so many people care to read what I write. Thanks for visiting!
