    Doctors




    (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 of Health 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 know I've slapped the liberals in the face with the kind of logic they can't dispute when the only thing they can muster in response is some lame ass sarcasm.

    That's hilarious.

    No, I don't mean that in a negative way, I mean that's brilliant.

    I'm FAR more fearful of death by iatrogenesus than by gunshot.

    Any American who isn't a black man between the ages of 17 and 37 should be, too.

    Just my luck I'll get a minor gunshot wound and die from malpractice.

    That would have to be the ultimate irony... receive an acidental gun shot that wasn't life threatening, yet die from iatrogenesis. A great example of the facts in the OP.

    Good luck, Ninja.

    I heard they're evacuating some towns and neighborhoods because of the smoke.

    If you figure it out, get rid of the left wing nuts as well. We could do without either :D

    She would have to commit suicide if she got rid of left wing nut jobs.
