Doctors vs. Gun Owners

Here’s a new threat you need to be aware of…

Doctors

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is approximately 700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171%.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and 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 .0000188%

+ + + + +

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 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor than by a gun owner!

+ + + + +

Does this mean We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand?

No.

Does this mean we need our legislators to enact new laws on “Doctor Control?”

Again, no.

+ + + + +

Out of concern for the public at large — however — We withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention…
