    Thought for the day:

    If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops
    in the Iraq Theater of operations during the last 22 months, that gives
    a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000. The rate in Washington D.C. is
    80.6 per 100,000. That means that you are 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.

    Just goes to show gun laws do nothing to prevent crime.

    I don`t think those percentages are correct for the troops.........
    Maybe Washington, but not on the battlefield.
