    Talking Gun Control

    Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you have to read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this!!!! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

    It is a portion of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

    GENERAL REINWALD: Weíre going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! Thatís a bit irresponsible, isnít it?
    GENERAL REINWALD: I donít see why, theyíll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Donít you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
    GENERAL REINWALD: I donít see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

    FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But youíre equipping them to become violent killers.
    GENERAL REINWALD: Well, youíre equipped to be a prostitute, but youíre not one.........are you?
    The radio went silent and the interview ended.

    Maybe so, but it doesn't make it any less true.

    Good catch Safetyhappy. There is no way a military officer would say that on the radio. As good a line as it is it wouldn't be worth his career.

    Now, if we could just convince people that Ollie North never named UBL in his congressional testimony...
