Doctors: (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. - 700,000. (B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year - 120,000. (C) Accidental deaths per physician - 0.171. Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Guns: (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. - 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million) (B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups - 1,500. (C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner - .000188. Statistics courtesy of FBI So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.' Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a 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, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
