    Doctors and Gun ownership...

    Doctors
    (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: 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 .000188. 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.
    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 withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

    If you outlaw doctors, only outlaws will have them!!

    Maybe this will solve the "Health Care Crisis" we're "in" right now!

    you know?.. I really think you might be on to something!
    I mean of course we would need to keep a few doctors around for an extreme situation.. but these doctors should be microstamped.

    I'm going to cable lock my doctor to the wall where he can truly "do no harm"!

    I remember seeing this on Packing.org. I guess I need to stay away from those darn doctors.
