American Hunters... the World's Largest Army.
Here's an interesting set of facts.
After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River. Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships in other localities, so why did they not invade? After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer....they know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them. 1. The world's largest army ... America 's hunters! I had never thought about this.... 2. A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion: 3. There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin . 4. Allow me to restate that number. 5. Over the last several months, Wisconsin ’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world. 6. More men under arms than in Iran . 7. More than in France and Germany combined. 8. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed. 9. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan 's 700,000 hunters, 10. All of whom have now returned home. 11. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that 12. The hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. The number of Hunters in the state of Texas would be the largest standing army in the world by it's self. 13. The point? 14. America will forever be safe from foreign & (domestic
) invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower. Unless they are taken away by Government. 15. Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security. 16. That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed. 17. Food for thought when next we consider gun control.
Why Carry a Gun?
Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)

My old Grandpa said to me, 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take a whoopin'.'
I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep myself or my family from being killed.
I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.
I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am
