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.


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.

oldie but a goodie

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
