    Guns and Doctors

    A friend of mine from Saudi Arabia sent me the following today. I thought it was funny, my apologies if you have seen it before!

    Doctors vs. Gun Owners


    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 and 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


    900 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.


    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!

    I have seen part of it before. The bottom part about lawyers, I have not.

    Dr H. Shipman would certainly given them a run for their money !!! Think of the statistics if they'd all been like him, frightening.
