This is old, but still fitting:
If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of2,112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
The firearm death rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period.
That means that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. Capitol than you are in Iraq. (Washington D.C. has some of the strictest gun control laws inthe nation).
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington immediately!
