Interesting slant on things. Don't remember who sent this to us. Pretty amazing though!
A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:1-There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin. Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!
2-Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters have become the eighth largest army in the world. That's more men under arms than in Iran and more than France and Germany combined.
These men, deployed to the
woods of a single American state--Wisconsin. They 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 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.

NOW add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It's millions more. What’s the point here? 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. See our post on U.N.Small Arms Treaty.
Here is some food for thought the next time the US considers a gun control law like the U.N.Small Arms Treaty. Even if we don’t disregard the assumption that hunters do not possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain. What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed US citizens who live on this soil for which they are fighting?
For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control in the US. Keep our shores safe!.
IF YOU AGREE WITH THIS POST, PLEASE PASS IT ON. ACTUALLY, WE FEEL VERY SECURE IN THAT WE HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND. WE FOR SURE DON'T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING POSSESSION OF OUR FIREARMS.
Hard takes, tight lines and huge fish throughout 2014 and forever. May we always be free to fly fish Idaho (and hunt here) and all of our 50 great states. Do not allow BIG BROTHER to control your God given right to fish (and hunt) our country's waters and lands. And do not let him decide that the rainbow trout in Yellowstone Park, which have lived there since their introduction in 1872, are less important than the cutthroat (WHICH SOME GREENIES HAVE DECIDED ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR RAINBOW). See our War on Fish post.
