Doctors
(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 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)


(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 .0000188

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. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by 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, We withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!


Saw this on another forum, I thought it good enough to post here for all to enjoy.

The 1500 is a little low according to the reference below.

11,078 firearm-related homicides in the U.S.[11] in 2010,

Tony, homicides are not accidental.

John, they can be. I knew a guy in Vietnam that accidentally shot and killed his best buddy. They called it "Accidental Homicide". Dave

not ALL homicides are accidental. I suspect there is going to be a movement to ban automobiles now after the latest attack with an assault car in Las Vegas.

Homicide includes any death that is other than natural causes. The majority of homicides are intentional self inflicted death, AKA suicides.

Another large category of homicide is justified police or business or home owner shooting of a criminal while preventing a crime.

Statistics quoted by politicians seldom mention these facts in order to justify their intent to circumvent the constitutional bill of rights.
