> 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 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
> 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.
> (IF YOU AGREE PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY
OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT
TAKING CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS)
> For the sake of our freedom,don’t ever allow gun control
or confiscation of guns.
