Talking Best comeback ever! You gotta love the media

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 got to 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 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.

I love it!

I don't know about you, but if I had kids I rather have them know how to properly handle gun, then accidentally blow their friends head off because they don't understand how a gun works or what it can do.

That is the best comeback I have heard.


Gun Control is being able to hit the intended target with your first shot!

Teaching them how to shoot may mean the difference of them returning home in a body bag or alive someday.
