Before his fiery speech to attendees at the Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., perennial conservative favorite Col. Oliver North said he’s already planning to give his latest newborn grandson a firearm.

“A newsflash! Just an update on that biography, number thirteen arrived yesterday … and it’s our ninth grandson,” he said Saturday.

North said he gives the same three presents to each grandson on his twelfth birthday.

“I give all of our grandsons — not when they’re born, but a little bit later because their moms insisted on it — I give each one of them three presents,” North explained. “The three presents are a shotgun, a bible and a note with a compass attached to it.”

“I say that if you learn to use all three — the shotgun, the bible and the compass — you will never be lost, you will never be hungry and you need fear nothing, but you must learn to use all three. So number thirteen will get his when he turns twelve.”
