This is something I saw on facebook, after looking it up, hoaxslayer said it's not true. But it's still hilarious.




Subject: FW: Worth thinking about Peter Cosgrove interview

For those that don't know him, Major General Peter Cosgrove is 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 can tell you simply, it was a real interview and he said those exact words!

In every subsequent issue, every reporter was careful not to use any 'tricks.'

Australian treasure?
Didn't Australia ban guns? Based on the same POV as the woman interviewer?

SnF by the way

Nope.

I guessing that you have been de-educated by NRA puppets via the MSM.

Deny Ignorance.

We have tighter gun laws, that's all. And they work well too.

Yes, Australia did ban guns, and in the first full year of the ban, gun related crime went UP 40%
