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.

This is a portion of an ABC (Australia Broadcasting Corporation) 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

Funny. Here is another funny one.
 

A couple went on vacation to a resort up north. The husband liked to fish, and the wife liked to read. One morning the husband came back from fishing after getting up really early that morning and took a nap. While he slept, the wife decided to take the boat out. She was not familiar with the lake, so she rowed out and anchored the boat and started reading her book. Along comes the Game Warden in his boat, pulls up alongside the woman's boat and asks her what she's doing? She says, "Reading my book." The Game Warden tells her she is in a restricted fishing area. She explains that she's not fishing.  To which he replied, "But you have all this equipment. I will have to take you in and write you up!"  Angry that the warden was being so unreasonable, the lady told the warden, "If you do that, I will charge you with rape."  The warden, shocked by her statement, replied, "But I didn't even touch you." To which the lady replied, "Yeah, but you have all the equipment!"

The sad thing is that it happens with no remorse.

No remorse needed. Though she may have been sincere in her concern. She played the fools game by trying to corner him in a public forum. She needed a wake up call that there are a vast many wonderful things that can be misused, abused and perverted. But you don't trash it all because of a few that do cross the line.
But there was remorse, and she carried a bucket full home. She'll think twice before she runs off at the mouth again. And I bet the majority of her supporters/fans have sweated bullets with her since then, but at the same time hopefully have seen their error.
Naa! Wishful Thinking. Whacko

Absolutely true and I get sick to death with people fixating on firearms as the problem instead of tackling the more difficult but real social issues.  Our idiot mayor in Toronto has proposed a gun ban within the city including closure of several old well established gun clubs because of increasing gun violence.  How the hell anybody with half a brain can expect this to help just drives me to distraction.  The problem is all those people who have no personal interest in firearms are willing to grasp at anything - and dishonest politicians seize this opportunity and say: hey, look, we are taking action.

And then just like everywhere else that has banned guns. They go scratching their heads as to why the crime rate has tripled. Shoot! If I was somebody that lived by taking what I wanted from other folks. That's the first place I'm going, is where I know the general populas is forceably unarmed. Then the local law is my only concern, and I don't care how well trained they are. It only takes a few days to pattern their habbits and then I can go to work. Hopefully if anyone has to suffer being robbed that mayor will be hit #1. Maybe if that happened enough some of these public puppets will not be so quick to pacify(?) the noisy liberal minority. Don't it just burn your grits how this stuff just keeps on happenin. Head%20Banger

The mayor getting robbed - great idea!.  That would be poetic justice.
 
Think I read somewhere (Japan I believe) that due to escalating violence with knives, they are now contemplating banning knives over a certain length, or something to that effect.  When we finally resort back to clubs maybe they will ban trees as well - Jeff Cooper had a name for people who blame inamimate objects for problems insead of miscreants, will have to go back and find out what it was.

Sgt. D, unfortunately, people like her never get it.  She has been indoctrinated by the lefties, and there is almost no hope.  Probably was born and raised in Madison, WI or Berkeley, CA.
