After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to
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 California 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. What was their answer? They know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.
The world's largest army is
's hunters! I had never thought about this. A blogger recently added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion: America
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of
alone! Allow me to restate that number. Over the last several months, Wisconsin Wisconsin's hunters became the eighth largest army in the world which is more men under arms than in . More than Iran France and combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms and no one was killed. Germany
That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of
Pennsylvania and 's 700,000 hunters all of whom returned home safely. If you toss in a quarter million hunters in Michigan it establishes the fact that the registered hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. West Virginia
Can you imagine if this study had added the hunters from the Great State of Texas? Ain't NO country in their right mind gonna invade
. Every child born in this state is given an arsenal dowry at birth! A Glock 40 is their teething toy! Texas
The point is,
will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower Hunting is 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. america
Food for thought the next time gun control is before Congress. Happy hunting in 2011
