    I received this in an email, and thought I'd share:


    Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the radio the other day and you'll love 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: 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, 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 gotta love the Marines!

    This has been posted many times before, and isn't true. Snopes is your friend.:)

    Sniper...

    Here's another that probably didn't happen. Both make nice stories, though!

    Radio interviewer: "What did you feel when you shot that terrorist from ambush? When he didn't even know you were there? He was walking along, and then, all of a sudden, bang, dead? Were you remorseful at taking a human life? Did you think about his widowed wife and fatherless children? What exactly did you feel when you pulled the trigger? Our audience wants to know."

    Marine Sniper: "Recoil."
