It's too quiet in here. Let's liven it up.

DOCTORS vs. GUN OWNERS
Doctors
(A) The number of physicians in the USA 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 H ealth and Human Services.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 
Now think about this:
Guns
(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 .0000188
Statistics courtesy of 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.
This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
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, we withheld the statistics on
lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

80 million private gun  owners... and 220 odd million think we've never been invaded because we're so nice.
be happy and make others happy.

They need to get rid of hospitals also.   Think about the number of sick people there vs. outside the hospitals.
