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

Nah, universal healthcare will just bring more hypochondriac’s out of the woodwork. They don't actually need healthcare.
