Marines - Proper Rifle Discipline
Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you may have read his reply to the lady conducting the interview concerning guns andchildren. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have got to love this!!!!!!! It is a portion of the National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster and the Marine General.
General Reinwald was preparing to sponsor troops of Boy Scouts visiting his military installation.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys while they are visiting your base?
GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, camping,cooking, archery and shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they will be properly supervised while on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
GENERAL REINWALD: Not at all. We will be teaching proper rifle discipline before they ever 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 have got to love the Marines!
