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.

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 US ,
than you are in Iraq .

We could donate DC to all of the politicians and let them bask in their own glory. While the rest of the country went about our business.
