This is from a while back, but very good. Of course it stirred up a hornet's nest in the UK with the elites. "Asked where the Duke stood in a debate that the interviewer noted had become ''a very sensitive issue in the aftermath of Dunblane,'' the Prince said, ''I sympathize desperately with the people who are bereaved at Dunblane.'' But then he added, ''Look, if a cricketer, for instance, suddenly decided to go into a school and batter a lot of people to death with a cricket bat, which he could do very easily, I mean, are you going to ban cricket bats?'' An avid hunter, the Prince, 75, said that sportsmen were being punished for the action of criminals. ''I can't believe that the members of the shooting clubs are any more dangerous than members of a squash club or a golf club or anything else. I mean, they're perfectly reasonable people,'' he said with a convivial laugh. ''There's no evidence that people who use weapons for sport are any more dangerous than people who use golf clubs or tennis rackets or cricket bats.'' Another good one: "Commenting in a television documentary on the 50th anniversary of D-Day on the stress counseling now afforded to military personnel, he said: ''We didn't have counselors rushing around every time somebody let off a gun, asking, 'Are you all right; are you sure you don't have a ghastly problem?' You just got on with it.''
