An interesting conclusion:

A thoughtful letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine this week, is quoted below:

"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 2,112
deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 soldiers."

"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 U.S. capital, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the
U..S., than you are in Iraq."

Conclusion: The U.S. should pull out of Washington.
