Thoughts to ponder:

Firearm death rates

AN INTERESTING LETTER IN THE AUSTRALIAN SHOOTER MAGAZINE, WHICH I QUOTE:

“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 one of the strictest gun control laws in the US
than you are in Iraq .

Conclusion: The US should pull out of Washington D.C.
