Australian Shooter Magazine had an interesting letter that I came across and I thought I would share it, 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 2,112 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 .”

I am not posting this for political reasons, I am posting because it presents a great talking point about Self-Defense.  This little quote makes the point that you can be in greater danger on the streets then on the battlefield.  Of course the soldiers on the battlefield are well trained and prepared, are you?
