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 home.

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.

These may not be 50 cal automatic machine guns, but they're not pea shooters either!

Judging by the exploding deer population, we need a lot more hunters.

If I remember there was quote attributed to one of the higher ups in the Japanese during WWII that it would be foolish to invade the USA because there would be gun behind every blade of grass.

i would hunt alot more but the cost of processing and tags and all that its just not worth it

a 200lb deer will only give you about 60ish percent

but to the original statement yes true to every sentence

That's part of why we are a separate country and not just owned by a country. But, given the chance, politicians and many other people will take that right away from us.

Precisely why Switzerland has never been, and never will be, invaded or attacked in any way. Every single citizen served two years in the military, and is still in the reserves. Every citizen between 18 and 65 has a uniform and at least one fully automatic rifle in the closet and must re-certify annually at a range or go back to camp for two to four weeks for retraining if they do not.

I wouldn't worry about an invasion :readit: :ROFL::leprechaun:



Typically, there are approximately 30,000 US deaths due to firearms in the US each year.

In 2007 according to the Centers for Disease Control Faststats and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control WIQARS Leading Causes of Nonfatal Injury Reports:

48,676 people were intentionally shot who survived. (NCIPC)
18,610 people were unintentionally shot who survived. (NCIPC)
17,352 suicides (intentionally shot themselves who died) (CDC)
12,632 criminal firearm deaths (killed in a crime by guns) (CDC)
This does not include deaths of people intentionally or unintentionally shot for legal reasons (Like the police shooting a suspect).
The above total is 97270 people shot in the US in 2007. About a third (29984) died, and it is likely that the total number of Americans shot is at least 100,000 given that all types of gunshot injuries/deaths are not included.

Using just the numbers above, a little math indicates that in the US, every day during 2007, AT LEAST 266 Americans were shot. Every day, a third of them (82 daily) died.

The sad thing is the majority of those shootings were done in states or municipalities that have the most restrictive gun laws. Where honest law abiding folks are not allowed to have guns to defend themselves against the thugs and crackheads, who are armed.
