    Doctors vs. Gun owners


    Doctors:

    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is
    700,000.

    (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians
    per year are 120,000.

    (C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.


    Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of
    Health and Human Services.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Now think about this:

    Guns:

    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.
    is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million)

    (B) The number of accidental gun deaths
    per year, all age groups, is 1,500.

    (C) The number of accidental deaths
    per gun owner is .000188.

    Statistics courtesy of FBI
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    So, statistically, doctors are approximately
    9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do..'
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT
    ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Out of concern for the public at large,
    I withheld the statistics on lawyers....
    For fear the shock would cause people to panic
    and seek medical attention!

    When you get sick, I suggest you go see your gunsmith.

    Probably would mean more if you included all deaths from guns. The only thing these 2 statistics have in common is apparently accidental and death. I seriously doubt the anti-gun club is after the accidental deaths here

    If you think that's bad you should see the bicycle statistics.
