Some Statistics to Know

I found this on a website recently.  Though I haven't personally checked on the accuracy of these statistics, I think the point is clear;  Socialists WILL make an issue out of anything that prevents them from taking control, whether it is truly something that should, for safety's sake, be banned or not.  Anyhow, I thought this article was interesting and funny at the same time.  Enjoy :-)

Statistics, Doctors, and Guns

a. The number of physicians in the United States is 700,000.
b.  Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year is 120,000.
c.  Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (US Dept. of Health &Human
Services)
Then think about this:
a. The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000 (yes, eighty-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.
Statistically, doctors are about 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS A DOCTOR.
Alert your friends to this threat. We must ban doctors before this gets out
of hand.
As a public health measure we have withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear
that the shock could cause people to seek medical attention.
