    Interesting slant on things

    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

    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.

    The point?

    America will forever be safe
    from foreign invasion
    with that kind of home-grown

    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

    Food for thought,
    when next we
    consider gun control.
    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.

    For the sake of our freedom,
    don't ever allow gun control
    or confiscation of guns.

    I agree Dave, but there will be some people who will come on here and tell you we could never put up a battle

    But I will, again

    I doubt the millions of hunters would assemble into any kind of an organized army but I have no doubt that any invading force would constantly be plagued with their soldiers getting popped off by one or two guys behind every ditch, tree, whatever. The gorilla fighters are almost impossible to stop and they can defeat armies.

    ...and then there are some who will point out that unless the US is attacked over land by either South America or Canada, a standing army, no matter how large, will be of no use against the kinds of attacks we would likely face in the future.

    There are 2 kinds of enemies that would attack the US now: the ones who have neither the resources or the need to launch a massive ground assault from across an ocean, and the ones who have the resources to sit comfortably at home and pound us into wreckage from a great distance.

    An army offers no defense against missiles and their nuclear/biological weapons. Cyber attacks against our financial structures or attacks against power grids, transportation systems or food/water supplies could be launched and very little expense from overseas or gradually constructed by small sleeper units in-country over a period of months/years. Once they were launched, there would be nothing any army of any size could do to counter these threats either.

    Keller, assuming we had power grids and financial centers knocked out, we wouldn't have to worry about an invading force at first, we would have to worry about the people in this country turning on ourselves. I have no doubt that much of the fighting at first would be to keep the city folks, who don't know how to survive for themselves without taking it from someone else, in check. They may very well need to be eliminated in order for the rest to survive and progress.

    Hunters comprised of labors, electricians, welders, carpenters, manufacturers, truckers, HVAC guys, farmers, software developer etc. could survive and make life hard on any invading force. Plus, they would be the ones to rebuild the grid, from what we had left to work with. Unless its muslims who just want us dead, I doubt any other nation would nuke us and risk the loss of our soil and natural resources.

    Why would it be gorilla fighters? Will we turn the apes loose from the zoos to do our fighting, or will we be fighting gorillas to keep our produce? Oh wait, never mind, you must have meant Guerillas.
