Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws, you gotta love this!!! 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 visit to his military installation.
So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.
Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
The radio went silent and the interview ended.
