(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

Now think about this:
(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.
This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as a gun owner!!!
Out of concern for the public at large, we are withholding the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
Also, I just know some of you liberals are going to raise a stink saying "well, at least Doctors ave lives!" My reply, is so do guns! Way too many incidents of law abiding citizens saving their own lives or the lives of innocent others using a gun to twart a criminal action. Now, if you really want to get into the numbers, lets consider the 106,000 people who die from Rx drugs prescribed by Doctors!
And seriously,...are we still having the conversation about guns being evil? If a person can't reason that it's the individual that commits murder, then we have no basis to start a conversation, because they are too stupid to keep up.
