    Firearms Deaths

    Subject: Australian Shooter Magazine Quote


    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 ."

    Give it back to Virginia and let the VSP clean it up.

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
