    Edit:
    Snopes says 1996, and includes both the original and the "updated". That is the "newspaper version" though, so the audio could very well be from '93?

    from my uncle...


    Interesting slant on thing

    AMERICA'S HUNTERS --- Pretty Amazing!

    The world's largest army...
    America's hunters!
    I had never thought about this...

    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 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 now 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.
    Have A Great Day!
    -------------------------------------
    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, 40, 50 million armed citizens.

    (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)

    For the sake of our freedom,
    don't ever allow gun control
    or confiscation of guns.

    When I had my gangrene gallbladder taken out and spent 10 days in the hospital for what should have been an overnight stay the insurance company kicked me out. I had home nurse visits for two weeks and was asked if I had guns in the house. I responded that if I did I would not tell them. So the below has some merit.

    FYI, I am passing this along... These are comments from two other people who have also been asked if they keep guns in the house.

    The nurse just kinda slipped it in along with all the other regular questions. I told her I refused to answer because it was against the law to ask.

    Everyone, whether you have guns or not, should give a neutral answer so they have no idea who does and who doesn't. My doctor asked me if I had guns in my house and also if any were loaded. I, of course, answered yes to both questions. Then he asked why I kept a loaded gun close to my bed. I answered that my son, who is a certified gun instructor and also works for Homeland Security, advised me that an unloaded, locked up gun is no protection against criminal attack.

    The Government now requires these questions be asked of people on Medicare, and probably everyone else.

    Just passing this along for your information: I had to visit a doctor other than my regular doctor when my doctor was on vacation.. One of the questions on the form I had to fill out was: Do you have any guns in your house?? My answer was None of your damn business!!

    So it is out there! It is either an insurance issue or government intervention. Either way, it is out there and the second the government gets into your medical records (as they want to under Obamacare) it will become a major issue and will ultimately result in lock and load!!

    Please pass this on to all the other retired guys and gun owners... Thanks, from a Vietnam Vet and retired Police Officer: I had a doctor's appointment at the local VA clinic yesterday and found out something very interesting that I would like to pass along. While going through triage before seeing the doctor, I was asked at the end of the exam, three questions: 1. Did I feel stressed? 2. Did I feel threatened? 3. Did I feel like doing harm to someone?

    The nurse then informed me that if I had answered yes to any of the questions I would have lost my concealed carry permit as it would have gone into my medical records and the VA would have reported it to Homeland Security.

    Looks like they are going after the vets first. Other gun people like retired law enforcement will probably be next. Then when they go after the civilians, what argument will they have? Be forewarned and be aware. The Obama administration has gone on record as considering veterans and gun owners potential terrorists. Whether you are a gun owner, veteran or not, YOU'VE BEEN WARNED !

    If you know veterans and gun owners, please pass this on to them. Be very cautious about what you say and to whom.

    They are coming for us, so unless you're an ostrich, do not stick your head in the sand..........
    so just highlighting the first sentence -> right click -> search google for...:

    An attorney for Hobby Lobby Stores said Thursday that the arts and crafts chain plans to defy a federal mandate requiring it to offer employees health coverage that includes access to the morning-after pill, despite risking potential fines of up to $1.3 million per day.

    Hey, I never sheyot about healthcare.

    My work in plastic airplanes and glue sniffin is well known. Don't be trouncin'. Hobby Lobby is the chosen virgin activity superstore for any given Saturday night. Nothing takes the pain off no sexin' like a video game supply chain standing up to the Kenyan.

    That chicken nonsense was stupid though. I'll give ya that.
