You may have noticed that my byline’s disappeared from The Truth About Guns. There’s a reason for that . . .
Last week, after more than eight years of blogging, after writing more than eight million words about guns, I sold TTAG to Wide Open Media (WOM).
Rest assured: TTAG’s in good hands. WOM is fully committed to maintaining TTAG’s editorial independence. They have the resources and internet mojo to take this website to the next level.
TTAG will continue to provide the unvarnished, no-holds-barred truth about guns. News, review, editorials. The same mix served-up with the same fearlessness and snark.
As a sign of that commitment, Dan Zimmerman remains in place as TTAG’s Managing Editor.
Dan has my complete faith and confidence. He’ll continue wrangling TTAG’s stable of freelance writers, enabling an endless stream of first-class firearms-related content.
As for myself, I’ll be writing the occasional gun review and . . . that’s it. I’m out. I’m leaving the Second Amendment field of battle to hypnotize those who need it and write page-turning airport gift shop-compatible novels.
Needless to say, there are a lot of people I’dl like to thank for helping me guide this bad boy to Internet glory.
First and foremost, our readers. No readers, no website. Thank you for spending some of your valuable time perusing our pages. Keep reading and carry on!
Thank you to all the commentators who’ve kept TTAG honest over the years, entertaining readers with their wit and wisdom, offering keen insights into Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. Please continue to share your thoughts on TTAG’s electronic pages.
A big thanks to all our editors and writers. It’s been an honor and pleasure to publish your work. Your firearms expertise and dedication to the cause has informed and inspired me and millions — yes millions — of gun-owning, law-abiding Americans. For all our sakes, don’t stop now.
And finally I want to urge everyone who’s touched this website one way or another to keep up the fight for firearms freedom.
As the son of a Holocaust survivor, as someone who’s spent almost every waking hour manning the metaphorical ramparts, I implore you to buy guns, shoot guns, read about guns, talk about guns and vote your guns. Introduce newbies to guns. I’ll be right there with you. Because all our liberties depend on our gun rights.
Enjoy the new regime. Yes, this website will be different. But I have no doubt TTAG will be better under WOM’s expert ownership and Dan’s passionate stewardship. Watch this space . . .
