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. Department 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. :eek:

===========

Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

============

FACT:
NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR. :hmm:

============

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

We must seek to impose Doctor Control 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!

A doc with guns is not out of the norm.But what I really want to know is who he voted for.

He's worried about his livelihood, among other things.
