My mom sent this to me...



Doctors:

(A) The number of medical doctors in the U.S. 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 U.S.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, medical 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 MEDICAL DOCTOR.

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

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban medical doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!

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

Out of concern for the public at large, we have withheld statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention...

It's cute, but not a valid comparison. Everybody dies, and most are under the care of a doctor when they do.

I could mention that I am not anti gun ownership at all, but this is just silly.

Yes, I think the over-whelmingly greater amount of deaths from guns are NOT accidental.

That means :

No accidental death due to either doctors or guns.

I'd like a statistic on how many doctors are killed by guns.

But the key word is accidental. That indicates that the doctor did something unintentional that led to the death.

I am a nurse and a gun owner. Doctors are frequently quacks.
