An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine this
"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
The firearm death rate in Washington , DC is 80.6 per 100,000
for the same period. That means you are about 25 percent 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 .
Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington."
