Washington DC Gun Control

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine this week, which I quote:

"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 per cent 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 US should pull out of Washington."

If you think gun control is a good Idea (little sarcasm)

Wait until you see what they have really done for health care. (shudder)

LOL... good one! Reminds me of a Ron White joke about two cops who get into a point blank shoot out with bank robbers in a suburban. After the shoot out the bank robbers drove away..... no holes in the suburban either... heh-heh.

I agree, I also believe that gun control means using both hands for maximum control. PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

Trust me, you do not want the feds running health care. For proof, look at the fine job the feds did with cash-4-clunkers.

Sometimes even a "sling" helps..........

I get the punchline and all, but that 60/100,000 statistic can't be close at all ....

160,000 troops and 2112 deaths = 60 per 100,000???

Never let the facts get in the way of a good argument.

Thanks for reminding some folks that this post is a joke and was posted in the Jokes forum. No time to get serious over a joke... spending time over a stalled butt is no joke.
