Interesting slant on things…
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.
America will forever be safe from foreign
invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.
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.
