There are at least 15 million hunters in the United States, perhaps as many as 20 million. That's twenty million people armed with game rifles and out in the woods hunting for game animals. That's more people than any five armies in the whole world. That's tens of millions of people with wood craft skills who know how to harvest game in the wild to survive. That's tens of millions of people who own guns and are able to shoot, and live in the woods. They are a massive army of people who value their gun rights. They are gun people who use their guns for a practical purpose on a regular basis. These people are some of the most important defense assets the United States has. They are people who can resist an invading army or defend against a government bent on tyranny. Hunters are carrying on in the tradition of those farmers who stood at Lexington Concord and fought the British in the Revolutionary War. Hunting should be encouraged as a part of our national defense; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
