(click image to enlarge)There is a quote often attributed to Admiral Yamamoto of the Japanese Navy during World War II.
It is said that the Admiral told his constituents that an invasion of the United States mainland would be a massacre for them because there is a gun behind every blade of grass in America. ( some question the validity of the quote but it makes an excellent point regardless)
While I cannot speak for every blade of grass, I would dare say that the quote is probably accurate when it comes to Randolph County. Considering we were ranked 9th in the nation for gun ownership on a countywide basis.
