    Interesting facts

    Well The Governor of Tennessee today vetoed the guns in restaurant/bar bill but luckily the Senate will override it very soon.
    Now check this out:

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

    (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:

    (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 0.0000187

    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."



    Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
    This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as 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,
    I withheld the statistics on lawyers
    for fear the shock would cause
    people to panic and seek medical attention!

    Will changing doctors help?

    Well, one of the best places to get sick is a hospital! I guess that's because that's where the doctors work?

    I find it amazing that people are so afraid of guns, yet they readily get into the most dangerous thing man has ever created and never give it a second thought--a car.

    Don't worry about doctors. There won't be very many left very soon.
