Think About This: (Statistics from the US Dept. of Health & Human Services) A. The number of physicians in the US is 700,000. ! B. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000. C. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. Then think about this: A. The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000. 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 0000188. Conclusion: Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. 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 out of hand. As a public health measure, I have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear that the shock could cause people to seek medical attention.
