Interesting slant on things

AMERICA'S HUNTERS ---
Pretty Amazing!

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 Wisconsin.

Allow me to restate that number: 600,000

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 fact 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.

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.

Overall it's 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?

For the sake of our freedom, don't ever allow gun control
or confiscation of guns!

BE VERY AWARE of obama's and h.clinton's attempt to take our weapons via the commie united nations group!!

If you saw Palin shoot that caribou and consider it national defense material, I can';t help YOUR stupidity.

She shot 4-5 times at a wandering caribou and missed
When she shot the first time and missed, she panicked and shot at it as it moved, apparently thinking it would be easier to hit that way than when standing still
She took no practice shots
She didn’t check the sites (they were off)
She didn’t carry her own rifle; she let her father and his friend carry it for her (her father is 72-years-old to Palin’s sprightly 46)
She let her father load the rifle
When the rifle was passed to her, MamaGrizzly “moved her finger inside its trigger guard, a breach of basic safety rules” as one website noted
“On leaving her hunting camp one morning, Ms Palin pointed to the horizon and declared ‘Let’s go west.’ There followed an awkward pause.“That’s east,” noted her father.”
She was under-armed (her father called her weapon a “varmint rifle” yet she expressed concern that it might have a kick)

The problem for Sarah Palin fans is how to reconcile her obvious phoniness with her claims. Republicans have shown a breath-taking ability to put facts aside for the sake of ideology,“what should be” for “what is” but can they do it when it’s blaring in their faces on their big screen HD TVs?

This is the web, rather than lying or posting stupid claims, look it up... Asking ANYONE to do it for you, is a sign you're stupid & lazy.
