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

Statistically, Doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
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.)
Oldie but, a goodie.
