    Thought for the Day

    Got this from a friend via IM today, thought you guys might appreciate it.

    If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in 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.

    Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington, D.C
