After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent troop ships and carriers to invade California• The predic- tion from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mis- sissippi River. After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals said they knew that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them. The world's largest army.•. America's hunt- ers! If you add up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a strik- ing conclusion: There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin. Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters became the eighth largest army in the wodd, More men under-arms than =n 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 Pennsyl- vania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, all of whom have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it liter- ally 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 homegrown firepower. Hunting - it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national security.
