Best comeback line ever

I think that this is probably the best comeback line I have ever heard:

Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on National Public Radio (NPR) by a female broadcaster. General Reinwald was about allow a Boy Scout Troop to visit his unit and the Marines were planning on giving them an introduction to the defence force and firearms:

Female Interviewer: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
General Reinwald: We’re going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting.
Female Interviewer: Shooting! That’s a bit irresponsible, isn’t it?
General Reinwald: 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 Reinwald: 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 Reinwald: 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.

Gotta love Marines!!
