    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.

    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.


    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!


    I hope my doctor does read this :D

    Seen that before in the email that bounces around on the interweb. :laugh:

    Funny thing is, a LOT of things kill FAR more people per year than firearms (like automobiles) but they don't get the foaming at the mouth rage from the antis like firearms do. :nuts:
