Comparing the situation in Iraq to the situation in Washington, D.C. – math doesn’t lie …
There have been an average of 160,000 troops in theater (Iraq) during the last 22 months, which has 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 Washington, D.C., America’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.
