Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other
day and you'll love 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: 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, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but
you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended.

You gotta love the Marines!

I have no idea if this is true or made up. I also have no idea if it is recent or old. I got this in an e-mail. I thought I would share it with you guys.

Sorry to say but, this one is an Urban Myth. Sure sounds like something a crusty old Marine would say, but Generals tend to be more PC these days. Too bad, we could use a few more Chesty Pullers and Al Grays!
