    If this is True it is best response ever!!

    For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is an 'Australian treasure!'

    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 gotta love this!

    This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.
    It is 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:
    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 radiocast went silent for 46 seconds and when it
    returned, the interview was over.

    Sorry, but this is just as false today as it was when it went viral over ten years ago.

    Still a good putdown line tho.
