    Doctors VS 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 .000188.

    Statistics courtesy of FBI

    So, statistically speaking, 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 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than a gun owner!

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors before this gets
    completely out of hand!

    Let's let Farm & Fleet aware of these numbers, after all Farm & Fleet bans things that are known to harm their customers.

    Sarcasm, sorry couldn't resist.

    I love it when the numbers don't add up for the anti's.

    We must contact our lawmakers today, tomorrow and the next day to remind them of Constitutional Carry.
    Laws are not written because of the actions of many, they are wrtiten because of the inactions of many.

    Don't forget swmming pools....

    "So, having a swimming pool in a household is something like 21.6 to 27.8 times as likely to lead to an accidental death as having a firearm, when we look at the numbers for all age groups. For children less than 15, the difference is more like 52.8 to 68.0 times as likely."

    Spectacular!

    I so love facts. They're so hard to argue with unless dealing with the clinically insane. Thanks for the link!

    When I gave a talk about smart gun technology to the UW medical students in October I brought up these statistics and joked about them being "assassins in training."
