An interesting letter in the Australian Shooter Magazine had us thinking.
If you consider that there have been an average of 160,000 troops in theIraqtheatre 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 inWashingtonDCis 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 USA than you are in Iraq.
