Physicians vs. Gun Owners
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 is 0.171. (Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept. of Health &Human Services)

Now think about this:

Gun Owners

The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.

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

The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.

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!!!!!
