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.
This is one owns has .
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 :
So, General Cosgrove. what things are you going to teach these
young boys when they visit your base?
GENERAL :
we' re going to teach them climbing. canoeing, archery and
shooting.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That' s a bit irresponsible, isn' t it?
GENERAL ! :
I don' t see why, they' ll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Dont you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be
teaching children?
GENERAL :
I don' t see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline
before they even touch a firearm.
FEMALE :
But you' re equipping them to become violent killers.
GENERAL :
Well, lala' am, you' re equipped to be a
prostitute, but you' re not one, are you?
The radaghast went silent for 46 seconds and when it returned,
the Interview was over.

I think if you learn how to safely handle any weapon you're less likely going to use it wilfully against someone like it's a ******* toy.

Learning how to use a gun is like pretraining for anyone who will be weilding one afterwards(Cops, soldiers, whatever the **** uses guns, rednecks)
It's practically the same as learning how to divide fractions if people end up working at Mcdonald's.

I think it's more like driving cars. There are people who should not be allowed having a gun, and from my experiences in the military, there are way too many stupid people. O got thrown out because i broke the arm of a guy pointing on me with his gun. It wasn't loaded, of course, but i've seen a guy giving his friend a headshot, while they were walking from the shooting range. He didn't check the chamber of his rifle for ammo, that is what happend back there.
The most ridiculous thing back there was the guy, who's fault it was. He saw that i'm a medic and was attacking me after i told him, that i coudn't do **** for his friend, since half of his head has gone.
So, in my opinion, only people that show some professional behavior should be allowed to have a gun, like only professionals can do surgeries, be judge etc.
User avatar #39 to #31 - chiefrunnyjeans (11/17/2012) [-]
As much as I don't want stupid people to get a gun, here in America it's a right, and I think everyone should be allowed to get a gun unless they are a violent criminal or are mentally unstable like schizophrenics. Rights should never be limited no matter what.
#42 to #39 - gjsmothefirst (11/17/2012) [-]
Mentally unstable you say?
I think pointing a loaded gun (first rule of gun safety - it's ALWAYS loaded, even if it isn't) at your friend's head while "playing around" qualifies as mentally unstable in some respect.
#56 to #39 - justakewldewd (11/17/2012) [-]
Here's the things about rights. Just because something is a right, doesn't make it right (also two wrongs don't make a right and three rights make a left)

Further more hat was written when most firearms took about a minute to load in untrained hands and were mainly used to keep you and your family's bellies full and coffers in the black.

Don't get me wrong, the kick of .243 and the spray of beer from a can downrange indicating a direct hit is almost better than sex. Not quite, but almost. But if any jackass can get a hold of one for about a hundred greenbacks, that means any jackass can get a hold of one for about a hundred greenbacks.

The ease of commerce means the ease of mistakes and the thought that some seemingly normal crazed man up in a water tower doesn't make you rethink today's policies, you're in need of a shrink yourself.

Seriously, though, you can tell it's fake because the dialogue is soooo biased. The pro-gun guy is all calm and intelligent and the anti-gun guy (or girl, I should say) quickly (and I mean IMMEDIATELY) jumps to irrational conclusions.

Also, as an Eagle Scout and somebody who's been in Boy Scouting for almost a decade, let me tell you that the gun safety rules are heavy, but I still don't trust half the ******* kids I've met in Scouts with a weapon. Also, Archery is way more ******* fun, though I suck at both because I am right handed but blind in my right eye.
User avatar #59 to #49 - biggrand (11/17/2012) [-]
im a life scout currently and almost done with everything, but im nervous about the whole reverence part since im atheist and this is the only country hat still requires some form of religion to become and eagle scout. How hard are they about that in the board of review?
User avatar #117 to #59 - cancerousiguana (11/17/2012) [-]
It depends on who's on the board. Normally, they make you say a prayer at the beginning (as well as the oath, law, etc.), and at mine they didn't push the religion point any further. However, another Eagle from my troop got asked "What does 'duty to God' mean to you?" so you can't be sure. I'm also Atheist, and this was something I was worried about.
#87 to #59 - srslyjakecease (11/17/2012) [-]
Mine was pretty lax on it. dont worry too much, i was agnostic when i did it.  honestly you could pretend your a druid; you just have to revere something whether it be a deity or nation or person. at least thats how i was taught.   
   
and on another note, good luck on the review.  it was mostly scout history, and comprehensive trivia on what you learned in scouts.

say that your bhuddist you can be an atheist and bhuddist at the same time and i think theyll count that as a religion even though its more of a way of tg\hinking to get your eagle scout title or convert to a religion for a day get the title then drop it they cant take the title awayfrom you
User avatar #68 to #59 - heroicnapkin ONLINE (11/17/2012) [-]
Plast, Ukrainian Scouts (also for life), also need some sort of religion to actually be part of the organization, not even talking about reaching the equivalent of Eagle Scout.

Properly training and educating young boys on the correct and safe use of firearms = equipping them with the skills to become violent killers.

I agree guns are dangerous and unnecessary in many situations, but they're not evil neither is the use of guns. You can kill somebody with just about anything, guns are just more efficient.
User avatar #41 to #1 - chiefrunnyjeans (11/17/2012) [-]
In training them to use guns you are teaching them a higher level of responsibility. It would teach them the exact opposite, not to kill. While they would be more efficient at killing, they wouldn't do so unless they were already going to be murderers. They would kill just as well with a knife or rock.

Guns are only dangerous if in the wrong hands.
User avatar #10 to #8 - heartlessrobot (11/16/2012) [-]

I could have worded it better or simply said "sarcasm" underneath it. Oh well. I don't care about the thumbs.
User avatar #4 to #1 - holdup (11/16/2012) [-]
I strongly disagree, understanding the use and handling of a dangeous tool hardly makes you a killer.
User avatar #7 to #4 - dementedllama (11/16/2012) [-]
I suppose I should have made that a little clearer. The first line was meant to be sarcastic. I guess I shouldn't post comments after working 9 hour shifts on 3 hours of sleep.
User avatar #116 to #7 - graphically (11/17/2012) [-]
No one can read your sarcastic tone on the internet. Just try to be more literal next time to avoid confusion.

If everyone had a gun and knew how to use it there would be so much less gun crime, thin about it, some asshole tries to hold up a bank with loads of people in it, all armed, they'd just blow the bankrobber away or make him leave

Learn and own guns or lose your freedom
#98 to #93 - jldragon (11/17/2012) [-]
Jesus, I don't think I can stand to go into this again, so I'll go ahead and give my concession speech.

You were right, I was wrong, we need more guns to kill more people. If we don't try, we'll lose our status as the most developed country with the highest rate of shooting deaths. Wouldn't that be terrible? If nobody is allowed to have guns, how am I supposed to protect myself from the other people who don't have guns? Theres no way such a system already works in plenty of European countries.

I duefully await my barage of red thumbs and shouts of "'MERICA, MOTHER ****** !"
User avatar #118 to #98 - liquidz (11/17/2012) [-]
Yeah and they must enjoy being at the mercy of their government too.

Being armed and trained protects you and allows you to stop these shooting crimes that happen. These crimes happen because people actually are disarmed in most of those situations.

And look at these countries that "ban" guns, the criminals still have them, they just pay more to get ahold of them. Look what happens during riots, the people have to flee their homes, and towns because the police can't even protect them.

Finally think of national defense. Japan refused to invade america after pear harbor because they knew so many people were armed. They were not concerned about the military and they thought them to be weak.

It's this mentality that is making people want to secede from the union.

"own guns or lose your freedom"?

really? really?

You getting your jollies from shooting off guns has nothing to do with freedom; the real men that protect our freedom have all the ammo and gear they need.

If the federal government that you seem to be so afraid of wanted to take away your "freedom" that you love so much, you wouldn't stand a chance against them. You think abunch of gun enthusiast with AKs and M16's could do **** against our military capabilities if it really came down to it? You couldn't stand a chance against GPS, drones, and missile capabilities even with a vast collection of guns.

you are thinking of the Switzerland.

Every male age 18 goes to mandatory Military training, And have to keep a automatic weapon at home.
#34 to #33 - zeroclassified (11/17/2012) [-]
Yeah but Switzerland isn't commonly associated with weapons: they're associated with Pacifism.
User avatar #35 to #34 - iatedub (11/17/2012) [-]
Well you do have me there, But the crime rate related to firearms is lower than everywhere else in the world.
#36 to #35 - zeroclassified (11/17/2012) [-]
Because everyone has a gun.
#53 to #36 - justakewldewd (11/17/2012) [-]
Crime rate is lower not because of the fear someone may be packing iron, but because of the fear someone may be packing iron and know how to shoot for the knees.

This is thanks in part to one needing military grade training in firearms for one, and two because everyone who want the gun to do criminal acts would have to go through military channels, which gives the added benefit that said degenerates may learn better discipline and life lessons and turn away from previous violent thoughts.

Basically, criminals are not as likely to be armed as the people they are trying to wrong.

It's kind of like brains. Everyone has one but that doesn't qualify them to use said brains properly. And those that try to use their brain for evil ends may just turn over a new leaf once they learn new things.

It's a good system and one that should be employed here in the U.S.A. but the friggin gun nuts wouldn't allow it, even if the government used some of the defense budget to offer free classes. Granted I'm one of those said gun nuts but whose counting?
User avatar #37 to #26 - chiefrunnyjeans (11/17/2012) [-]
lol what? Australia is the exact opposite. You can't even get a gun for self defense because it's not "a good reason".
