THEBEST Put Down LINE EVER
For those that don't know him,Major General Peter Cosgroveis an "Australian treasure!"



General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
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 an ABC 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 and the interview ended.

I think that this is one of those made-for-internet stories, and I doubt there is any truth to it being an actual event. I've seen it attributed to a Marine General, the Commandant of the Marine Corps, an Army General, an Army Colonel and now this Aussie General.

That being said, it does make an excellent point. Just because something can be used for an evil purpose, doesn't mean that it will. This is a concept that many on the left just can't seem to grasp.

x2 you cant put it any better way.

It's crazy to think of gun owners as killers because of the potential use of violence. Or think of people like me as stupid. Look at all the people who get in a car everyday. Isn't it potentially dangerous to do that as well? You could hit another car, a deer, or maybe you're driving under the influence. Or maybe you just are feeling bad and want to hit someone in a cross walk.

I bet more people are injured in cars in a week than people who are with guns in a year.
