DOCTORS AND GUNS.... SOME INTERESTING STATISTICS
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 Human Services.
GUNS
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. Yes, that is 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.
MATH
171/.000188 = 909
Statistically, doctors are approximately 900 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."
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.

I think the math is off. 1500/80,000,000 isn't .000188, it's .0000188

and then .171/.0000188 would be = 9096

but the idea that 120,000 die every year from physician accidents is ridiculous. 120,000 people might die every year from EVERY type of accident combined.
