Is it true that doctors are more dangerous than guns?

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is
(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians
per year are 120,000.
(C) Accidental deaths per physician
is 0.171

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
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 9,000 times more likely
to be killed by a doctor as by 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,
We withheld the statistics on lawyers
for fear the shock would cause people
to panic and seek medical attention!
