What about air support, evac., medivac, artillery support? What if a large enough group or more of these gung ho hunters end up where they are wanted by our real military. They could end up being collateral damage or confound "real military" action. How do you resupply this "army"? Is there an equal number of medical personnel available to support them? There are so many questions you could come up with around not considering them a "true army" it is incredible. Who would pick what is a militarily important target? What would prevent overzealous action? And on and on.<quoted text>
Well said! To extend your statements, does anyone seriously think that 600,000 deer hunters in Wisconsin have the firepower to stop nuclear bombs or intercontinental missiles targeted on New York City?
In my oppinion, the best use of the "armed citizen" in the highly unlikely event we are invaded would be at most yo organize in their local community, provide for local defense and stay the hell out of the way.
I rest comfortably knowing that our country has the most powerful, well equiped, and trained and educated military on the planet. I don't have to worry about "Red Dawn" unless it is over trouble loading it into the DVD player.
