Gun Control Facts:

There has been an average of 160,000 troops stationed
in Iraq during the last 22 months. During this time
the firearm death total was 2,112 for a firearm death
rate of 60 per 100,000.

The rate in Washington DC is 80.6 per 100,000.
This means that you are 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

The Conspiracy to Keep You Poor and Stupid : HMMM... Our friend John Grauel says:

You consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 22 months, and a total of 2112 deaths, that gives a firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000.

The rate in Washington D.C. is 80.6 per 100,000(1). That means that you are about 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.

If Donald Luskin were not the Stupidest Man AliveTM, he would know that the DC figure of 80.6 is an annual figure, while the 60 figure is a monthly figure. 2112 deaths divided by 160,000 soldiers divided by 22/12 years gives an annual death rate of not 60 per 100,000 but 720 per 100,000.

But what is a factor of twelve to the Stupidest Man AliveTM?

Why would you want to pull the Politicians out of dangerous Washington into safer parts of the country? Think about it a little while:)
