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.


8-o


Wether these stats are correct or not Washington has long been the leader in murders per capita in the US. I tjust goes to show you that strict gun control laws do not do anything to deter gun related incidents. :-t

Lol, I think a man named Carl Johnson mightve committed all of those deaths.

Born in DC raised right outside. I hate DC. Thats why I moved to Denver. DC is cool in some ways..

but hey maybee you are more likely to get shot in DC but probably less likely to get blown up by a suicide bomber, hand grenade, missle or eaten by a camel :-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
