    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


    .0000188


    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.

    This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!


    ><<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>><


    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,


    We withheld the statistics on



    lawyers


    for fear the shock would cause


    people to panic and seek medical attention!
