AMERICA ‘S HUNTERS —
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.
(That’s 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 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 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???
For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
(IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS
WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR LAND AND I SURE DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING
CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS)
Designed by geniuses,
Run by idiots.
Yes you got it,, because I hunt, and I am part of OUR army, Thank you,
(Many thanks to the thousands of Americans who serve in our Armed forces around the globe! FB).

WHAT A GREAT IDEA !!!!!!!!!!!
Sensible Gun Registration Plan That Will Work
Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont ‘s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.
Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.

I saw this pic at FUpenguin.com and just had to share…go and read the comments, some are pretty good. One of them was: This creature’s other car is a spaceship.

Last night about 0100 hours the burglar alarm went off at the BlogLord’s command center. This screaming thing is a combination of frighteningly loud and industrially buzzy and generally scares the crap out of you when it goes off in the night.
We had not had a false alarm in a very long time, not since we had a tech from ADT come out and update the system and put in numerous high end components.
We always arm the system when away or when we’re hanging out in the end of the evening before we go to bed. It stays on all night.
Last night we armed it as usual and went to bed about 2100 hours (9 PM for you non-military types…). Anyway, it goes off abruptly and piercingly at 0100 and jolts me out of my usual fitful sleep with my heart beating at about 200bpm. We’re both quite a bit more concerned than usual due of the lack of recent false alarms so we feel semi-panicky as we turn off the screeching alarm so we can listen to the sounds in the house.
I immediately grabbed my Stag 2T AR-15 and loudly slammed in a 30 round magazine. I pulled back and released the charging handle which chambers a 5.56 round. The noise generated by this action is loud and uniquely indicative of the locking and loading of an AR-15. These actions were all performed with exaggerated crispness so that anyone within the first floor would hear and recognize the sound and realize that I am not to be messed with for I am now armed.
My phone rang about 30 seconds after the alarm. It’s ADT. They tell me they show an alarm from an upstairs door and ask if we want them to notify the police… I tell them to remain on the phone while I clear the house and to hold off contacting the police.
Now, with my cell phone to my left ear I switch the safety selector from ‘Safe’ to ‘Fire’ and walk down the hall with the AR held firmly by the pistol grip with my right hand, using my underarm to assist in pointing the muzzle forward and parallel to the hardwood floors. My finger is resting outside the trigger guard rather than on the trigger, a position allowing instant access to the trigger but requiring a thought process to actually fire a round. In my white Fruit of the Loom’s I check the first floor and then the second. There appears to be no break-in as all the doors are secure.
There’s several inches snow outside each of the doors and nowhere are there any footprints, a clear indication that this was a false alarm. I tell ADT that we’re OK and end the call.
As it turns out, one of the doors was not shut properly (hard enough) and didn’t quite make a solid contact. That, combined with the single digit temperatures and swirling wind, caused the alarm to sound. I advise my lovely spouse to make sure that she shuts the suspect door a little harder in the future to eliminate the chance that we have another very scary experience like this one.
I opened the door and firmly shut it making sure the door was shut properly and then cleared and rearmed the security system. I cleared the chamber of my reassuring Stag Arms 2T and slipped back into bed relieved and pleased that I was not going to have to clean up the spattered blood of some formerly dangerous intruder.
I laughed to myself at the mental picture of how I must have looked as I walked through the house in my bare feet and underwear with my AR-15 at the ready… We have no curtains but I am pretty sure that nobody was looking. If there was a robber, mugger, murderer or crazy scary bus lady in the area they would have taken one look at me and run fast in the opposite direction…
