    Guns don't kill people, doctors do.

    FACTS TO PONDER :
    (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) 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.
    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 withheld the statistics on
    Lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical
    attention
    Bleeding-heart reporter: “Do you feel that violence begets violence?”
    Jeff Cooper: “It is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure - and in some cases I have - that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more than he can enjoy."
