Moved this from General Firearms, sorry for the wrong forum post. A buddy of mine sent this to me. Sorry of it's old and been around a long time, it's the first time I've read it. Guns and Doctors Number of gun owners in the U.S. : 80,000,000 Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups): 1,500 Accidental deaths per gun owner: 0.0000188 Number of physicians in the U.S.: 700,000 Number of accidental deaths caused by physicians per year (all age groups): 120,000 Accidental deaths per physician: 0.171 (U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services) Statistically, Doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but everyone has at least one doctor. Please alert all your friends to this alarming threat! We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand! (As a public health measure, statistics on lawyers were withheld for fear that the shock could cause people to seek medical aid.)
