Letter to Editor re: guns...


Some deer hunting after-thoughts to ponder.... Less than 12 hrs. after the Marxist kenyan con-man was reinstated (getting well in excess of 100% of the vote in some districts, thanks to ACORN and its affiliates), now home free and no longer accountable to the people, he ordered a full court press assault on the 2nd Amendment through a UN Small Arms Treaty calculated to replace our Bill of Rights. Our right to bear arms is not about hunting, it is a Constitutional balance of power mechanism whereby the “master” (the People) reserve to themselves the means of last resort to put down mutiny and insurrection by their public“servants” should the need arise. Our Founders just fought and won a war over a tyranny – the last thing they wanted was for another to take its place. They did not trust government (established to protect their rights) with arms unless war was declared, reserving that right to themselves. There were to be no standing armies kept in time of peace.

Our Founders clearly explained their purpose in the Federalist Papers. James Madison writes in Fed. 46: “The highest number a standing army can be carried in any country does not exceed 1/100th part of the whole number; or 1/25th of those able to bear arms. In the US, this proportion would not yield more than 30,000 men. To these would be opposed a militia of of nearly ½ million citizens with arms in their hands fighting for their liberties. It is doubtful that such a militia could ever be conquered by such a proportion of regular troops. The success of our resistance against the British denies the possibility of it. The kingdoms of Europe, with military establishments built up as far as public resources will bear, are afraid to trust the people with arms. Should a people so armed, possess the additional advantage of local governments, chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, it may be affirmed that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overthrown in spite of the legions which surround it. Let us not insult the free and gallant citizens of America with the suggestion that they would be less able to defend the rights of which they held in actual possession, than the debased subjects of an arbitrary power could rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors”.

Now: Add up the deer hunting licenses sold - American hunters carrying firearms make up the largest army in the world. In Wisconsin this season, there were 600,000 hunters, making it the eighth largest army in the world; it had more armed men than in Iran - more than in France and Germany combined. With all these men hunting with guns in the woods of a single American State, no one was killed.

There were 750,000 hunters in the woods of Pennsylvania, 700,000 hunters in Michigan (all returned home safely). Add the ¼ million more armed hunters in West Virginia shows that hunters in these four States alone comprise the largest army in the world.

Adding to this the millions more hunters in the 46 other States reassures us that with that kind of home grown fire power, America will be forever safe from a foreign invasion. Guns used for hunting, in the hands of citizens already skilled in their use, are more than a way to fill the freezer, they are our nation's security, which is why our enemies, foreign and domestic, insist we be disarmed.

Disregarding assumptions of some, that hunters don't possess the same skills as soldiers, what army of two million would want to face 40 or 50 million enraged armed citizens defending their freedom and homeland from a foreign invader? Admiral Yamamoto admitted that this was the reason Japan did not invade the US during WW II. We must never allow treasonous globalist politicians to deprive us of our guns, the means to assure our survival.
