    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.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    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

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
    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,
    We have withheld the statistics on

    lawyers
    for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek

    medical attention
