Doctors vs Gun Owners

Doctors vs Gun Owners
Here are a few statistics on Doctors vs Gun Owners:
Doctors
*safety statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.

  • The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
  • Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.
  • Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171
  • Now think about this:

    Gun Owners
    *safety statistics courtesy of FBI.

  • The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that’s 80 million)
  • The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
  • The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188

  • Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT Almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner!!! 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, We withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention! That said… let’s go hunting.

    We would love to know what you think...

      Finally, a positive outlook on gun ownership. This should be posted on the front page of every newspaper in the United States. Thanks

      Statistically if you own a washing machine you are more likely to be in a car accident simply because if you own a washing machine you are more likely to be able to afford a car. This statistic though accurate is entirely irrelevant.

      Why is this limited to only accidental deaths? Why no murders or suicides?

      It’s not the accidental gun deaths that I worry about. I worry about a culture that says “Freedom Mean Owning a Gun” that’s not freedom. The saying should go, “Freedom is the opportunity to own a gun.

      That statistic doesn’t show the rate of homicide and suicide where guns were implemented.

      I am of the believe that you can be a responsible gun owner though, and those who go through gun safety training and licensing are MUCH more likely to be civil gun enthusiasts and not gun hording separatists. I personally am finding the time to get my Concealed Carry License. Which I think, as a citizen of my state, and the United States, is my duty as a gun owner.

      If you want to own guns, you should get licensed and not attack doctors.
