    I here ya there 45. I would rather a coke head gets his fix than having our military breathing that in by the hundreds or even thousands.

    Lurpy, that chart looks neet but I think there is a ringer in there. Check firearm assault 1 in 314 deaths. Given a population of 300 million, that comes out to 955,414 firearms assaults. If there are about 5000 firearms related deaths per year, over a 75 year lifetime that would be about 375,000 over a lifetime. Not allowing for the narrow range of demographics where most of these deaths would normaly be expected to occure it seems a very high number. Any of you statisticians out ther see where I might have gone wrong?

    Your math is correct enough. If the chart is for the U.S. alone, and the stat is for "criminal assault" alone, then they are 100% lying! However, if the stat is for the entire earth and not limited to criminal assault but includes EVERY instance of assault with a firearm including combat, then the stat could be fairly close.

    Booze doesnt kill people. People that drink TOO MUCh do. If you dont have the good sense to know when to cut yourself off, quit drinking. YOU are the problem not the booze.

    Then pull our boys out and send all of our drug offenders over there and spray the whole country then they won't have the money to fight any one.
    and the drug head heads can over dose while they are there two problems solved at once.
    Supply and demand gone.
    Plus send all the men in washington that support the rules of engagement
    (don't fire until they shoot you) and see what they think then.
