Default Public Service Announcement - Ban Doctors!!!

Doctors

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000.
(C) Accidental deaths per physician are 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.

Rock on!

Now that is what I'm talking about........antigun laws are ridiculous, Most of the guns used during crimes are black market weapons anyhow. So why punish people who are purchasing them legally because the ghetto is turning into a warzone????

Agreed "anti-gun laws" are bad, but strict standards for gun purchases etc. is good in IMHO...lots of wackoes out there.

Yar dood, right on

Doctors are great for acute care, but as far as long-term health, nutrition, and cellular health, I'll take a nutritionist and cellular biologist over any doctor any day! And a gun too!

Thats a riot!!!

I saw an interesting statistic the other day. There are ~500 million guns in the world. Do the math, that's 1 gun for every 12 people. Don't you think we've got enough?

As for doctors, I avoid them if I can.
