Gun control quote of the day

“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 2112 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

  1. Googled it like I should have before posting my comment and realized it is a joke and the math is wrong. Based on the numbers for Iraq (reasonably accurate) the death rate is 1320 per 100k not 60. However the conclusion is still right on.
