    Doctors are more dangerous than guns!!!

    I got this from another gun forum. I wish I could say I gathered this information but Iíll give credit where credit is due. I think I got it off Combatcarry.com. Iíve been so many sites today I forgot where I copied it.

    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.

    Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

    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.

    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."

    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, I have withheld the statistics on
    lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    That's what I told the wife. I said I was quitting the doctor, and buying another gun, she gave me my meds and lead me back to my room for the nite.

    The C.D.C also adds suicide into that 1500 accidental deaths by firearm. If you strip suicide away it is something like 20-25 accidental deaths a year. I can't remember where I found that but as soon as I re-find it I will post it.
