Think about this:

The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.
Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000.
Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (US Dept. of Health & Human
Services)

Then think about this:

The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000.
The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188.
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.

P.S.
Statisticians have also determined that if your parents never have any
children, it is highly unlikely that you will have any either.

And the old adage, figures don't lie but liars figure!

Hmmmmm....granted my perceptions are NOT based on scientific data but from personal experience.

There is approx. 220 million people in the US.
80 million people is close to a third of the population.

Now I know that there is far less then a 1/3 of my friends/aquaintanences that own guns. Of course it may be different elsewhere...but that is just what I have observed.

Also....can we add in INTENTIONAL deaths by doctors and guns?? If we did that we would have a whole new statistic! Thinks that make you go hmmmm...... ;)

Let's also compute in the Darwin effect to see how many people deserved to die based on stupidity.

"Uhhh, no doctor I thought drinking that Draino would help clean out my bowels"

Guns are cool as long as they are kept out of the reach of children.
