Take THAT, GFW's !

GuyK put up an interesting statistic:

If you consider that there have been an average
of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations
during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112
deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per

The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 firearm deaths per 100,000.
That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and
killed in our nation's capitol, which has some of the strictest gun
control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington D.C.

Kinda puts the damper on the anti-war protesters laments about how deadly Iraq is doesn't it?.....Maybe, in next session, the Pols will try to award themselves battle pay?
