    Couldn't pass this up, had to share!


    (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:


    (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.'


    Almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as a gun owner!!!

    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!"

  5. I wonder how many doctors have accidentally shot themselves.

    That is a stunning stat. Although not a bit surprising to a responsible gun owner. Wonder how many if those doctors are gun owners?
  7. Lol! Very cool fun fact! Never really thought about it that way! So, more carry permits and less medical doctorine degrees I say! Lol!
