    Doctors vs Guns- which is the biggest killer?

    Results of New CDC Study .

    Doctors:

    (A) The number of doctors in the US is 700,000
    (B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000
    (C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%

    Statistics courtesy of the US Dept. of Health & Human Services

    **************************************************

    Guns:
    (A) The number of gun owners in the US 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 0.001875%

    Statistics courtesy of the FBI

    **************************************************

    So statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

    For a bit of balance perhaps we could have the figures for non-accidental deaths caused by guns and medics, and also for numbers of deaths prevented by both?

    Or perhaps we could just debate the advantages of gooseberries over barometers?
