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 and Human Services.


Now think about this:


(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 .0000188

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.'




Almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!


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

A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles per year.
Another study found Americans drink, on average, 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud to be an American.

From the medical standpoint, it's a PRACTICE and it needs PEOPLE, so it appears LOGICAL, or maybe it's ILL LOGIC.
Doctors everyday screw up someone and generally not in a good way.
It's never the good stuff, just the detrimental stuff that harms, but then it's a PRACTICE yet THEY FAIL TO LEARN FROM THEIR MISTAKES.

Guns and related Weaponry, unless set up with timers and/or trip wires, will NEVER ALONE HARM ANYONE.
Therefore, I agree that Guns ARE SAFER than doctors!!

Thanks to samfloor!!
