    I got this from a friend so I don't have the source article may be true may not be who knows but its funny.


    Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day by a female interviewer concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun control this is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

    It is a portion of a National Public Radio (NPR) interview between the
    female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald as he was
    preparing 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, 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!

    but it never happened. Urban legend, but since it's a joke, I'm moving to the Lighter Side.

    There is no such USMC general with that name.
