It's time to ban doctors !

Submitted by b bishop on 01/20/2004. ( ) 65.73.67.83

Just an interesting set of statistics to share this brisk morning.

Think about this:
a. The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.
b. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000.
c. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (US Dept. of Health &Human
Services)
Then think about this:
a. The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000.
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.

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than
gun owners.

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 out of hand. As a public health measure, I have withheld
the statistics on lawyers for fear that the shock could cause people to
seek medical attention

Furthermore, remember there is room for all of God"s little creatures in this worldÖ right next to the mash potatoes.

I am glad I fired my doctor years ago and bought me a couple of guns in the meantime. That might have saved my life. LOL

How many INTENTIONAL deaths are caused by physicians and how many INTENTIONAL deaths are caused by guns?
Paints a whole different picture, doesn't it.

Guns don't kill anyone. They dont' have a mind of their own and come to live to take out the living. It is the person behind the gun pulling the trigger who is the killer.

And on intentional killings by doctors there are quite a few recorded.

Does Dr.Kervorkian ring a bell? The so called suicide doctor? How about Dr.Mendele who killed thousands of people all in the name of "science" for the Nazis? Now that is just two. I am pretty sure there are more.

But then again this whole post was started as a piece of humor Ted. Not to be taken too serious.


Too bad ........

are committed with other types of weapons besides firearms. but they wont ban hammers, screwdrivers, knives, baseball bats, cars,or your own hands and they sure as hell wont get my guns either.
you can insult a firearm all day long and it wont shoot you, they are harmless, people are dangerous...but they wont ban the criminals either.
