    doctors and guns?



    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 and 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

    .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,

    I withheld the statistics on

    Lawyers

    for fear the shock would cause

    people to panic and seek medical attention!

    That is fantastic,, Funny how statistics can be manipulated by leaving out other statistics. The anti gun people do not want anyone to see comparative numbers on anything, they throw out a number and expect it to have a huge impact because there is nothing to gauge it by.
    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)
