American WarZone

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 2,112 deaths - that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000. (Doesn't include those who died due to IEDs).

The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 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.
