    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.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>
    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.

    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 have withheld the statistics on
    lawyers
    for fear the shock would cause
    people to panic and seek medical attention.
