Guns versus Doctors, very interesting statistics

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 ofHealth and 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 owns 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, we withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

What, darling, do you mean now? I would NEVER willingly give up my gun. You have to quit letting the lefties spoon feed you their propaganda. Listen to me I know much more than they do. Much more.
You know I have never steered you wrong, and I most certainly will not guide you down the rosey path to Hell.
