    Cool Facts to Ponder

    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 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.

    Another way to look at it .... and see the difference ....

    Every 6th doctor in the USA will have a patient die ....

    Every 53,333th gun owner will have a citizen die ...

    Scary huh !!

    going to the range today as a matter of fact. my buddy just got the Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm. It'sa pretty sweet gun. Came with two 17 round clips and a cable gun lock (now standard on all handgun sales in FL).

    I'm going to check out a Benelli super nova tactical shotgun for home defense. I'll check the mossberg and remington as well while there too.

    There's been a ton of shootings and break-ins here in central FL lately.
