When you consider that there has been an average of 160,000 troops in the Iraq theater of operations during the last 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 that you are about 25% more likely to be shot and killed in the US Capitol, which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you are in Iraq.

Conclusion: The US should pull out of Washington, DC immediately.

Hahaha... I havent checked these stats, but it’s still amusing.
