Interesting  slant on things
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:  
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.
