**Sorry for the absence. Things continue to be a bit hectic on my end.


Figures lie and liars figure. In this example there may be more to it than that.
Doctors:

(A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000

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

(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%

Statistics courtesy of the U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services

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 0.001875%

Statistics courtesy of the 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.

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