Found this on Yahoo,
Something to ponder...
(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.

Now think about this:
(A) The number of gun owners is 80,000,000 (yes 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

So, statisticaly doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
I guess this means "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 for lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical help!
