Immediately after stating my belief that no one reads TTAG who hasn’t already made up their mind on gun rights, this email hit the inbox. Winning? The exception that proves the rule? A drop in the bucket? I report you deride.
To whom it may concern,
Just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed your website/blog. It’s been an eye opener in more ways than one. I ran across it after doing a google search for reviews on Glocks. The review was well done and kinda funny, so I stayed on the site and kept reading. I was looking for a gun because . . .
I can’t really pin it down honestly. Protection is a buzzword but frankly I hope I’m never in that situation. My guess is like a female who takes personal defense classes because she runs in the park a night after work, I would like a gun because on a occasion I find myself at risk. At least I feel that way. Jury is still out on whether I buy a gun honestly.
To my surprise I found no “Gun Nuts” on your site. Not a lot of ranting. I read some common sense arguments. Whether I agree is beside the point really. The point is common sense and truly listening to apposing views may seem like a lost art, but its not, really.
You’ve made some compelling arguments, and I’m listening. Bravo to both of us.
I know you by your website but you do not know me. My name is Antonio. I’m not a gun enthusiast. I’ve had a family member die in “gun violence”, but at the time we (my family) didn’t think of it as such. It was just a cowardly act by stupid, evil people. It will continue to be just that.
I’m a Democrat. I vote my conscious but I vote party line too. I’ve voted for Obama 3 times, Democratic Primaries, 2008 general election, 2012 general election.. Hey, don’t act like you haven’t made 3 mistakes in a row before! LOL, I kid, I kid.. I like to make fun of myself and of others so that was a gimme. I’m proud of the fact I vote. I don’t think you’re an idiot because of who you vote for, I only think you’re an idiot if you don’t vote period.
There is probably a lot of other stuff that make me different than some of your readers, and that’s ok with me, I’m going to continue to keep reading. Hope that’s ok with you.
Have a great weekend,
