Physicians vs. Gun Owners

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.
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 0.000188.

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

With gracious gratitude to my brother, who knows how I feel about that them doctors, I would like to tip my hat! Oh yes, and gun RIGHTS, too! Thank you, Mr. GrassRoots. Digg This Story


  1. off topic: Is there any way we can get rid of El-Bardaie(sp?)? Can we start a petition? This entity is either on IR's payroll or he has some vendetta against the Bush Admin: Read these two articles:

  2. He just got renewed back into office. I tried. I was not alone, but we just couldn't convince the STATE DEPARTMENT THAT SHOULD BURN IN, well, you know where. It is very frustrating. El Berdei or something like that. Yes, it's muslim. Does that give ANYONE a freakin' clue? Not you, my dear. I'm just as upset as you are. SIX MORE YEARS. GRRRRR.


Please be respectful of others, so they may be respectful to you. Have a blessed day.
