I've actually been working for the past few days so this is probably a dupity dupe dupe, but I'll post it anyways -


If 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.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

Think I saw it a while ago, but I really don't know what to think about it.

I just cracked up at the punchline. The stats are fake btw Yer about 15 times more likely to die in Iraq.
