    At an OP in view of your house...
    Sort of silly, but what the hay...

    It was a fwd in my email, so I am not so sure how accurate the stats. are, but I am guessing they are pretty accurate...

    Doctors vs Gunowners
    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.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Now think about this:


    Guns

    (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.'

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    FACT: 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!!!!!


    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


    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

    I've seen that before...while it may not be exact, it's probably pretty close.

    As I recall, the ancestor of this message began making the rounds years ago after a medical society took a public anti-gun stand. Perhaps it was the AMA calling them a health menace, but I'm not sure.

    Banning or attacking everything because of the bad acts of a few is absurd in any event.
