DOCTORS:

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 0.000188.
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.
Out of concern for the public at large, I have withheld the
statistics on lawyers for the fear the shock would cause people to panic
and seek medical attention...
