scary stats

From the US DEPT. of Health & Human Services

Physicians:

1.The number of physicians in the USA is 700,000.
2.Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year is
120,000.
3.Accidential deaths per physician is 0.171.

Gun Owners:

1.The number of gun owners in the USA is 80,000,000.
2.The number of accidental gun deaths per year is 1,500.
3.The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is
0.0000188.

Statistically,Doctors are aproximately 9,000 times more
dangerous than gun owners.

FACT:NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN.BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT
LEAST ONE DOCTOR!!

WARNING!!!
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
We must ban doctors before this gets out of hand.

As a public health measure,I have withheld the
statistics on lawyers for the fear that the shock could
cause people to seek medical attention!!
