    How Gun Control Helps

    Might be old, numbers might be incorrect - just take it as a joke if you'd rather; pretty funny.

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

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

    Whatever the actual numbers are, I'm willing to bet they're on par with at least one or two of the major anti-gun cities in the U.S.
