    Physicians:
    a. The number of physicians in the U.S. is about 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)

    Guns:
    a. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
    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.

    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.

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

    If you ban the doctors...who's going to fix you when you accidentally shoot yourself......????


    Plus...how many of those numbers of people dying from doctors count that have been from normal gunshot wounds?

    what hes getting at is that you should compare intentional deaths by each. the tables will turn significantly

    need to compare the fact of people shot with guns usually perfectly healthy before shot.. people in hospitals usually dying before they hit the door.. raise the price on bullets lower price on doc's

    When you end a thread like this:



    ....I think it's pretty safe to assume the thread starter had "funny" in mind.

    this doesn't count those people. this survey only counts the ones that have scissors left in them, given wrong medications, etc... if someone's dying, and they can't save you it's not accidental.


    for those that took this serious, hahahhaah there's one born everyday.


    Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the statistics on
    lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical
    attention.
