    Found this on the internet and thought it was pretty good.
    Note, this is not an attack on doctors ( I am very grateful for them) , it is just to illustrate the insanity of gun control.

    Guns Don't Kill Americans, Doctors Do

    (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 have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.

    Wow! And I know a Dr. who collects guns...:shock:

    I guess the next time he asks me to go target shooting I should decline.

    Don't worry the new health care bill may take care of that for us........ glad it has stalled for now.

    Maybe we can make that into a bumper sticker "guns don't kill people, doctors do" then put the statistic about them being 9,000 times more likely to kill a person than a gun underneath it.
