True story and most people will never know it.
Here’s an interesting side bar. After the Japanese decimated
our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their
troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they
started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not
be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the
Mississippi River. Remember, we had a 2 million man army and
war ships…...all fighting the Germans.
So, why did they not invade?
After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were
asked that question. Their answer…...they know that almost every
home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.
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
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 in France and Germany combined.
These men deployed to the woods of a single American state
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.
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.
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
That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us
Food for thought when next we consider gun control.

Sometimes I think they phrase: "Lets fight em over there, so we do not have to fight em here" is a weak point. If we were to fight em over here, the war would be a very short and concise one, which shows that the plan for non ending no bid contract wars are here to stay. It should also wake our members of Congress up to the fact we need no Homeland security, as we are the homelands security, and no man will fight harder than he does for his own property, if we could truly own our property.
