"If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000
troops in the Iraq Theater
of operations during the past 22 months, and a total
of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm
death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
The firearm death rate in Washington , DC is 80.6 per 100,000 for
the same period.
That means you are
about 25 per cent more likely to be shot and killed in
the US capital,
which has some of the strictest gun control laws in
the U.S. , than you are in Iraq .
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington
