Some food for thought .....
Recent blog posts noted some interesting statistics regarding the 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.
America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.
Overall these numbers are 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.
Hunting...it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.
This does lend credence to talk of UN Arms Treaty's that threaten to disarm us. That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
Food for thought, when next we consider gun control.
