AMERICA ‘S HUNTERS —Pretty Amazing!

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 of our enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us  disarmed.

That is anytime and every time America  considers gun control. Our enemies want guns out of our  hands.

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.


Remember, the right to bear arms was put into  the Bill of Rights not to allow hunting but because the Americans had  just finished fighting a war against THEIR OWN GOVERNMENT  !!!

178 — June 26 – This Day in Baptist History Past


A Fearless Ambassador of Christ


I. B. Kimbrough was born in Tennessee in 1826.  While ministering in Tennessee, Kimbrough at one time served as the financial agent of Carson and Newman College and traveled extensively in his state attempting to raise money with which to train young Baptist preachers.


On June 26, 1886, at Waco, Texas.  Dr. Kimbrough recalled an incident from his days in Tennessee and his work with Carson and Newman College. As he was traveling from one appointment to another through a secluded forest, he was confronted by two highwaymen. Holding their guns on the man of God, they insisted that he dismount from his horse and hand over all his money.


Very well, gentlemen, please give me a little time, and I will obey your orders.” Kimbrough responded. After dismounting, he laid his money in two piles, then turning to the highwaymen he said: “Gentlemen, this small pile of money is mine: you are at liberty to rob me of that; the larger pile is God’s money, and I dare you to touch it. I collected it for the young preachers of the state who are struggling for an education at Carson and Newman College.”


The earnestness and courage of the man attracted the attention of the robbers, and they began to inquire into the work in which he was engaged. He told them he was a Baptist preacher and explained to them his mission. After hearing what he had to say, the elder of the two men said:


“We will not take either your money or the money of the young preachers.”
Turning to the young men, and looking them full in the face, Dr. Kimbrough added: “Young men, you are in a mighty bad business. I believe you ought to give it up. In the meantime, I will be grateful if you will help me in the work in which I am engaged.”


Following this appeal, the robbers gave him $5 each for the young preachers, whereupon the faithful minister mounted his horse, and all rode away, going in different directions.


I. B. Kimbrough was a fearless ambassador of Jesus Christ!

Mother Hiding with Kids Shoots Intruder

Posted on 5 January, 2013 by Amy

As I’ve mentioned before, while I’m a huge supporter of the Second Amendment, I’m no fan of guns and sincerely wish that owning one (or three) wasn’t a necessary responsibility, especially when you have a family. Here’s another reason why that’s the case:
[A] woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
But the man eventually found the family.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.
“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.
If this story pans out, what you have is another Exhibit A to explain why owning a firearm and learning how to use it properly is so damned important. Does it sound to you like this guy was simply looking to rob the house? And even if he was, what would he have done had he found three defenseless witnesses who had seen his face?
This story is yet another example of how, in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, the entire debate surrounding guns has been turned on its head by Democrats and their media allies. What they’re pushing for will only serve to make more of us — like this mother of two and the Sandy Hook Elementary students and staff — even more vulnerable to the wicked.
What should be obvious to anyone willing to put ideology aside in favor what works, is that encouraging responsible citizens to arm themselves (after learning how to safely store and use a firearm) is the smartest, most effective, and most compassionate reaction to an act of evil we know no gun control law would’ve stopped.
The only thing I dread more than the thought of shooting someone, is the thought of needing to shoot someone and being unarmed or out-gunned.
ADDED: A number of folks on Twitter are pointing out that unloading her gun on this intruder failed to kill him. Had she missed her shots or failed to bluff him with the empty gun, having only five rounds might have proved fatal. And yet, Democrats and their media allies want to restrict the number of rounds a magazine will carry.

 With the renewed interest in debating the theoretical wisdom of gun control it seems appropriate to recount its historical “benefits”.  The results of gun control in the past 100 years include:
1 ½ million dead Armenian Christians in Turkey [1915-1917];
10 million Ukrainians dead by forced starvation in the Soviet Union [1929-1934];
35+ million defenseless dead people in China [1934-1976];
20 million dead in Europe courtesy of Nazi Germany [1933-1945];
2 million dead in Cambodia [1975-1979];
300,000 in Uganda [1971-1979];
800,000 perished in the 100 days of slaughter in Rwanda [1994];
200,000 Mayan Indians dead in Guatemala in the 1980’s;
Tibet – 1 million slain;
and Bangladesh 1 ½ million.
These 70+ million people all died in the past 100 years and owe their senseless demise to the helplessness imposed upon them by gun control laws.  No way this could happen in America!  Or could it?  The fact is it already has.  Four million slaves were rendered defenseless and forced into servitude during the 1800’s. And though I have never seen a statistic on how many American Indians perished in the “Trail of Tears” we all know the number is significant. Additionally, the American government has disarmed and forced the German, Italian and Japanese heritage citizens of OUR OWN NATION into interment camps during times of war.  Only the most naive citizens – only the most historically ignorant people – only the most diabolical leaders would attempt to place their fellow man under such a lethal disability as defenselessness.  The above statistics teach us that the primary reason for a government disarming its citizens is so they can safely commit atrocities that the people would undoubtedly shoot them for.

Please use this as a sample letter and send it to your own local newspaper to oppose gun control.
