A Strong Warning to Any and All Would Be Invaders

US demand for handguns driving world gun trade


American demand for handguns has fueled a 28 percent jump this decade in world exports of pistols, rifles, shotguns and other small arms, a global report said Thursday.

The 2009 Small Arms Survey reported that the Untied States alone was responsible for about half of the worldwide increase in legal international gun sales between 2000 and 2006. The U.S. now accounts for over half of the world's imports of pistols and revolvers and 45 percent of shotguns, it said…

…"No other country imports more than 4 percent of the global total," the 344-page report found.

The Japanese knew that we were a well armed society.

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

So this is my warning to any rogue nation who thinks we can be easily had. Drop your paratroopers into the mountains of West Virginia or the Carolinas, or in the Adirondacks of Northern New York or the mountains of New Hampshire where the vehicle tag says "Live Free or Die", or in the back swamp areas of Louisiana or the Florida Glades, or in the vast areas out in the West or the rural areas of the Mid-West and see what happens. These are areas where people own many scoped rifles used to hunt and know how to use them very well (they also have numerous handguns and shotguns). At that time, any invading army will learn the hard lessons that the Russians learned when attempting to engage the mountain fighters of Afghanistan. If you announce that you only came to attack the anti gun liberals, many well armed American firearms enthusiasts might consider standing down for that because we would not want to ever go against their anti gun "Americans should not be armed and able to defend themselves" wishes.
