Thought this was funny.. gun control comparison

I have NO idea in regards to the accuracy... (and doubt it is)

================================================== ========
Guns don't kill people


Copied from another forum. Thought the people here would find this interesting -

Note - No independant research. Have no idea of the accuracy of the statictics.


(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.**

(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) Accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188

**Statistics courtesy of the FBI**

So, statistically, doctors are over 9,000 times more likely to accidentally kill you than gun owners.

Remember - "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."
"new joke tomorrow..."
