    American Hunters

    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.

    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 us disarmed.

    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.



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

    E-mailed to me from a friend, thought I would share.

    Aw, hate to rain on your parade but anybody that would want to destroy/invade the US would most likely bomb the crap out of us first and have that capability (under the theory that they can get that many boots on the ground). Then like the Taliban we would be fighting for years in the woods and mountains hiding. So I would not take great comfort that the hunters of the US will repel an invasion. It would just be a long fought guerilla war. And if it got down to that they will still the air superiority (they would have to if they had millions of troops on the ground).
    Also, I think an invading force would have superior fire power and communications than the hunters would with boltaction rifles.

    And, unlike us in Afghanistan, an invading force would not hesitate to carpet bomb entire areas, regardless who is there.

    What protects us is two great oceans and a good healthy navy and air force. And the retalitory force of our missles and submarines. Our Army and marines would most likely take care of the ground protection. I don't think our hunting population is a deterrent to somebody like China for not invading.

    Not raining here, you have a good point but the only time a Army fought on our shores was
    the Civil War. Us against Us.

    Just food for thought.

    I'm more concerned over domestic enemies that are already here, with a populace who are content to trade liberty for security on a daily basis.

    War of 1812? And the Brits could not get enough boots on the ground because of the OCEAN.

    What food for thought? Tha is like saying the only time the french one a war was the French revolution because it was French against French. And last I looked at the map the Union did not have to cross an ocean with an invading force. And..the war took years and was the most costly in our history. If anyone thinks that the amount of hunters we have would deter an enemy is smoking something I hope is legal someday

    This has been argued many a time on gun boards and the general consensus is that the unmanaged/unorganized hunters would be wiped out in a matter of days and would be no threat.

    This is where I differ from the rest. What some don’t realize is the American population is full of vets and other that have police and paramilitary training and would organize guerilla groups that history has shown to be affective in disrupting supply line and disorienting invaders

    I wouldn't disagree with that in its entirety. But, what I am trying to say is if somebody were to invade us which would be the most difficult operation ever attempted. They would have to have such overwhelming force to defeat our army, AF, Navy, and Marines. With that we could put up a great guerilla war. But if the enemy wanted to and decided to wipe out folks by the thousands or hundreds of thousands then game is about over. What an invading force would want is our resources. They don't need the people. We could make their lives miserable, no doubt about that. But they aren't going to leave because of it. They will have a gloves off approach. Not like us in Afghanistan.

    If they are; I got a medical marijuana card off an internet doctor from India. They might bomb some of the USA but California is already bombed.

    Sometimes a scoped bolt action rifle in the hands of somebody that knows how to use it and camouflage can be a game changer.I'm going to have to say with all the Vets etc. that whether we win or lose it will be bloody and costly, but when a trapped animal is fighting for it's life it becomes highly unpredictable and when defending family or pack extremely dangerous.
    But like Suntzu said Air Superiority can be a huge game changer,and when fighting an enemy that will probably more interested in wiping out the whole population,there won't be too many places to run and hide since you can't just blend into the regular population.

    Good luck to them. Imagine their initial disappointment turning to blind terror when they discover that our women are not exactly submissive.
