Dangers of Living in WASHDC
U.S. Combat Soldier in Iraq
An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine this week, which
“If you consider that there has been an average of
160,000 troops in the Iraq theatre of operations during the past 22 months, resulting in a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers.
Compare this to the firearm death rate in Washington, DC which is 80.6 per 100,000 for the same period of time – 22 months – that means you are about 25 percent more likely to be shot and killed in the U.S. capital, which by the way has some of the strictest gun control laws in the U.S., than you are as a combat soldier serving in Iraq.
Which means: “The U.S. should pull out of Washington.”
