American Hunters

Postby PaiN » Wed May 09, 2012 7:17 pm

AMERICA'S HUNTERS --- Pretty
Amazing!

The
world's largest army... America's hunters!

I had never thought about
this...

A blogger
added up the deer license sales
in just a
handful of states and
arrived at a striking
conclusion:

There
were over 600,000 hunters
this season
in the state of Wisconsin.
Allow me to restate that number:

Over the last
several months,
Wisconsin's hunters
became the eighth largest army in
the world.

More
men under arms than in Iran.
More than
France and Germany combined.

These men
deployed to
the woods of a single American state,
Wisconsin,
to hunt with
firearms, and
no one was killed.

That
number pales in comparison to the 750,000
who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and
Michigan's
700,000 hunters,
all of whom
have now returned home safely.

Toss in a quarter million hunters
in West Virginia
and it literally establishes
the fact
that the
hunters of those four states alone
would
comprise the largest army in the world.
And then add
in the total number of hunters
in the other
46 states.
It's millions more.
The
point?

America will forever be safe
from foreign
invasion
with that
kind of
home-grown
firepower.

Hunting...
it's not just
a way to fill the freezer.
It's a matter
of
national
security!

***************************************
That's why all enemies,
foreign and
domestic,
want to see us
disarmed.

Food for thought,
when next we
consider gun control.

Have A Great
Day!
-------------------------------------
Overall it's true,
so if we
disregard some assumptions
that hunters
don't possess the same skills as soldiers,
the question
would still remain...
what army of
2 million
would want
to face
30, 40,
50 million armed citizens.

I forget his name, but some Japanese high-ranking military official said, during WWII, that he dreaded the thought of invading the USA. He noted that "there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass".

Trained or not, who would want to face so many armed enemies?

This was also during the era when 8yr. olds would be out there with single shot shotguns & .22's, trying to repel the Japanese invasion.

Long story short, we weren't pussies back in tha' day. :)

It was Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto who said that.

Yup, that's who said that. Back then he had a real fear. Today I am not so sure. Hope I never find out how many would really stand firm.
