    In WWII, Japan 's highest ranking naval officer was Isoruku Yamamoto. Although he was Japanese, and his loyalties were unquestionably with The Empire, he studied for many years in America , graduating from Harvard University . There is an oft-repeated (and sometimes disputed) quote attributed to him regarding the possibility of any nation taking a war to American soil:

    "You cannot invade the mainland United States . There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

    Here is why he was correct:

    America's Hunters. The World's Largest Army.

    The state of Wisconsin has gone an entire deer hunting season without someone getting killed. That's great, considering there were over 600,000 hunters that got permits this year.

    Allow me to restate that number.

    Over the last two months, the eighth largest army in the world - more men under arms than Iran; more than France and Germany combined - deployed to the woods of a single American state to keep the deer population under control.

    But that pales in comparison to the 750,000 who are in the woods of Pennsylvania this week. Michigan 's 700,000 hunters have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia , and it is literally the case that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

    And that is just FOUR states.
    The total population of registered hunters in America today ranges from 23 million to 43.7 million individuals. (Based on annual data provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.)
    As long as the American Hunter retains his right to Bear Arms, America will forever be safe from foreign invasion of troops.

    Hunting - it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.

    The invading army will be greed of the politicians. From Congress to the locals. From Corporate America to the small business man. From the adult male and female to the children. Greed will do us in. Gov'ts tried oppression and other forms of suppression to the human population, but when they reversed that and gave the populace all that the populace wanted, they were under the control of the government. Then the government will put the squeeze on them

    It's too bad a large percentage of those millions and millions of hunters don't belong to the NRA. If they did, our voices would be a lot louder and those that are members won't have to take up so much slack. Larry Evans
