One of our readers sent us this set of very interesting statistics:
Doctors:(A) The number of doctors in the U.S. is 700,000(B) Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year are 120,000(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 17.14%Statistics courtesy of the U.S. Dept. Of Health & Human ServicesGuns:(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. 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 0.001875%Statistics courtesy of the FBISo statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more Dangerous than gun owners.Remember, guns don’t kill people, doctors do.NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTORPlease 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 Statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.
Regardless of your political persuasion, you have to admit these facts are pretty ironic!! Long live the 2nd Amendment and raise your glass to medical malpractice insurance!
By the way… It’s rumored that Congress will launch a full investigation to ban physicians on the OSHA Health and Safety threats posed by doctors in the U.S…. afterall, they have nothing more constructive to do with their time.
