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 a
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
GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them
climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit
irresponsible, isn't it?
GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be
properly supervised on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is
a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be
teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them
to become violent killers.
GENERAL REINWALD: Well, you're equipped to be a
prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
The radio went silent and the interview ended.
