DOCTORS vs. GUNS

Check out these statistics:

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 physicians 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.S. 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 have withheld the statistics on
lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical
attention.

Signed,
A concerned citizen

My wife is a RN and constantly 's about there attitude and stupid thing they do.
She says that her and co workers know more about what's wrong with a patient than the Doc's.

Same situation here. My girl is an RN too. I hate those SOB's. They think they're so f'n cool and they don't know jack.

That's not nurses.
That's most women in general.

I don't think I have a doctor, since I moved. However, I sure do have my guns!

I understand the nurses' complaints. My g/f's mom is a nurse. But, everyone knows the deal when they choose their careers. . they knew that docs made more. So, they should have become doctors.

But yeah, I know of doctors that have made people worse than they initially were. Mis-diagnoses, etc.

Going to the doctor is like taking your bike to the shop...
sometimes you get a good diagnosis and it's fixed right the first time.... other times you have to find another mechanic.

Money has nothing to do with my wife's complaints about the doctors.

Its the things they do or don't do that obviously needs to be done.
Then blame somebody else for there mistakes.

I just remind her ***** rolls down hill.

haven't you guys watched Chris Rock talking about that.

We already pay to much for our guns and now you want to rip us on ammo.

True, it sucks, but it's like that in any industry/business usually.
