Another gem from my AZ brother-in-law

>
> -General Peter Cosgrove is an Australian.
>
>
>
>
>
> General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
>
>
>
> Read his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children.
>
>
>
> Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you have to love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.
>
>
>
> In a portion of an ABC radio interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military Headquarters.
>
>
>
> FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
> So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
>
>
>
> GENERAL COSGROVE:!
> We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.
>
>
>
> FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
> Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
>
>
>
> GENERAL COSGROVE:
> 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 COSGROVE:
> 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 COSGROVE:
> Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
>
>
> The radio went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned, this interview was over.

Sound like BS - who was this unnamed interviewer? What station was is on? This is probably just another right-wing e-mail lie. It's too bad you chose to spread it.
