Think about this:
a: The number of physicians in the United States is 700,000.
b: Accidental death caused by physicians per year is 120,000.
c: Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (Per US Dept. of Health and Human Services)
Then think about this:
a: The number of gun owners in the United States is 80,000,000.
b: The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
c: The number of accidental gun deaths per gun owner is .0000188
Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
FACT; NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.
Please alert you friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand. As a public health measure statistics on lawyers have been withheld, for fear the shock may cause people to seek medical attention.
