Marines Answer to Gun Control

Marine Corp's 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: 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: D on'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. You gotta love the Marines

Warm regards and God bless.

Just a great example of how when something makes it to the Internet it will live forever (doesn't matter if it's true or not).

Things like this provide a valuable lesson. It shows that once something gets out into the wild, no matter how totally bullshit it is, it will be picked up and repeated even when FACTS show it to be wrong.

Kind of gives you a better understanding of why people never let go of the same tired lies about guns, doesn't it?

No attack on you V-Rod, just using the post as an example.

At least it's become standardized. The story has been consistant for the last few years. I first heard it as a British officer on BBC TV talking about taking the Brit version of Boy Scouts to a camp.
