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 knew 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

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 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

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.

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.
