Doctors vs Gun Owners

This just in via email and I had to share!

Doctors

The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.
The number of accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000.
The number of accidental deaths per physician is .171.

Statistics courtesy of the US Dept of Health and Human Services.

Now think about this . . .

Gun Owners

The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000. (Yes, 80 million.)
The number of accidental deaths caused by gun owners per year are 1,500.
The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.

Statistics courtesy of the FBI.

So - physicians are about 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

FACT: Not everyone owns a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor.
SO - You are 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than a gun owner.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!
