I found this on another site.

FACTS TO PONDER:

(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.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept ofHealth 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 .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.

Please 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 withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention

I have seen this and its pretty funny, but seriosly 120,000 accidental deaths....LMAO a year....every 10 years we lose 12 Million people to Doctors? And to think noones every mentioned it other than this little quip...

Imagine if they allowed doctors to own guns????? Would that make them inherently safer? Or would they then have the common sense to no longer go to the doctor themselves...
