    Guns vs doctors.(humor)

    Email from my mom, kinda funny.

    PHYSICIANS:
    (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 & 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) 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.

    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.

    Hmmm... I suppose that a physician with a gun would be viewed as only more of a threat...

    Hey, that joke sounds very familiar.
    Whatever doesn't kill you postpones the inevitable.

    If the antis want us to stop carrying guns we can start carrying Doctors they are far more deadly then guns.

    I haven't been to a doctor since 1972 when I broke my leg.
    A lot of my friends have died along the way.
    NOW I know why!!

    It's kind of ironic that some doctors kind of have "waiting periods" to see them that are much longer than seven days....I guess we kind of need them, huh?
