Guns VS Doctors

Submitted by Duckman on 5/19/01. ( )

Fact: Number of physicians in the US: 700,000.
Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year: 120,000.
Accidental deaths per physician = 0.171 (U.S. Dept. of Health
Human Services)

Fact: Number of gun owners in the US: 80,000,000.
Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) 1,500.
Accidental deaths per gun owner = 0.0000188 (*Benton County News
Tribune on 17th of November, 1999).

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more
dangerous than gun owners.
Remember: Not everyone has a gun, but everyone has at least one Doctor.
Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban
doctors before this gets out of hand.
Guns don't kill people, doctors do!

I know it's frustrating to be misdiagnosed, etc. It's also frustrating to have to pay the out-of-control prices they charge for healthcare. BUT... there are a lot of Dr.s who hunt and fish and bring us business. Also, the AMA is a literal MONSTER. One of the wealthiest and most powerful organizations in the country. We should try to be on their good side, if you know what I mean! :) ...RickJ
