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.

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.)
