    USA – Doctors & Guns

    Doctors

    (A) The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.

    (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

    (C) Accidental death per physician is 0.171

    (Statistics courtesy of US Department of Health and Human Services).

    NOW THINK ABOUT THIS:

    Guns

    (A) The number of gun owners in the US 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 0.000188

    (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. This
    means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as a gun
    owner!

    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 withheld the statistics on lawyers
    for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
