    Physicians:

    (A) The number of physicians in the U. S. is 700,000.

    Guns:

    (A) The number of gun owners in the U. S. is 80,000,000. Yes, that is 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 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!

    Out of concern for the public at large, the statistics on lawyers has been
    withheld for fear the shock would cause

    people to panic and seek medical attention.
