    Another cute one

    Guns vs. Physicians

    Consider this:

    (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 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, in all age groups, is 1,500.
    (C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188


    Statistics courtesy of the FBI


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


    FACT: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor; so, figure your odds!
    Remember, 'Guns don't kill people -- doctors do.'


    Hmmmmmmm!

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
