    Gun alert
    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 US. Dept. of Health Human Services.

    Guns:

    (A) The number of gun owners in the
    U.S. is 80,000,000. Yes, that is 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 0.0000188.


    Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 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. 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, the statistics on lawyers are withheld for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    I get it, but its retarded. Let's have the 80 million gun owners carry a gun on them every day and see how many accidental shootings there are.

    Don't jump on him. He didn't make that up himself. I've seen it several times before. Get a sense of humor.

    I think it's pretty funny.

    85% of doctors are arrogant.
    50% of those doctors are arrogant to cover up their stupidity.
    The 15% that are nice are not the ones (for the most part) that kill people.

    Don't ever go to a teaching hospital if you are gravely ill. (one attached to a university)
    That is where your greatest chance of death lies.
