Food for thought

There were over 600,000 hunters in the state of Wisconsin. These hunters became the 8th largest army in the world. There were 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 who hunted 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. Overall, it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question still remains…What army of 2 million would want to face 30, 40, 50 million armed citizens?
