Interesting slant on…

Pretty Amazing!
The world's largest army...

America 's hunters!
I had never thoughtabout

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a
handful of states and

arrived at a striking

There were over 600,000 hunters
this season in the stateof Wisconsin ..
Allow me to restate thatnumber:

Over the last several months,

Wisconsin's huntersbecame 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 ofPennsylvania and

Michigan's 700,000hunters,
all of whom have nowreturned home safely.
Toss in a quartermillion hunters
in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the
hunters of those four states alone

would comprise thelargest army in the world.
And then add in thetotal 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-grownfirepower. Hunting...
it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's amatter of national

That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
Food for thought, when next we consider gun control.
Overall it's true, so if we disregard some assumptions thathunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would stillremain...

What army of 2 millionwould want to face 30, 40, 50 million armed citizens???
