Guns Are Safer Than Doctors???

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Ol' Whiskers, Aug 3, 2005.

  1. Someone e-mailed this to me today, and it may have been posted before, but here goes:

    Doctors:

    (A) The number of 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 U.S. 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, 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, I have withheld statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    I find those stats hard to believe myself.

    If and when your appendix ever rupture, I'd just sit home and wait it out, you'll be okay.
