    Doctors vs. Gun Owners

    Saw this on another site. Liked it and thought I would share.


    Doctors vs. Gun Owners

    Doctors

    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
    Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

    Accidental deaths per physician are 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)

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

    The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.

    Statistics courtesy of FBI

    So, statistically, doctors are approximately 900 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 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than 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!

    I bet the odds go way up when you see that doctor in the hospital.

    In Gainesville, FL...guns are not allowed in hospitals, but maybe doctors shouldn't be allowed in hospitals...I'm just sayin'...

    Somehow, I am not amused by this specious comparison...

    Next time you need your prostate operated on, see a gun owner...
