    An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine, which I quote:

    "If you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq/Afghan 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 D.C.

    I always thought gun control only takes the guns from the good guys. The bad guys will always have guns.

    "GUN Control" is hitting your target, period.
    What the Looney Tunes Leftwing wants is "PEOPLE control". :mad:
