Doctors:(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 is80 million.(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is1,500.(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerousthan gun owners.Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONEDOCTOR.Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.We must bandoctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!* Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld thestatistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic andseek medical attention.
