Guns: Only this item, among the most dangerous one on the list in terms of deaths and injuries, is defended against sober and sensible regulation by fanatic gun nuts around the nation.
just because I like Bratwurst doesn't mean I wish to ever choke you to death with one!
Doctors vs. Gun Owners
(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 and Human Services.
Now think about this:
(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 .0000188
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.
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!

Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!! Good One!
But, we know you wouldn't do that. That would constitute the socialist 'sharing' of food.
Sharing: another commie liberal concept which has been allowed to be taught to young children in public schools.

Wise One wrote:For the nineteenth time, the gun issue that interests me is the one that involves the largest number of injuries and deaths – in other words, the public health issue. Crime is a minority contributor to those injuries and deaths – important but not as important as others.
The majority contributors involve family, friends and acquaintances simply going about the sometimes messy business of life. Strategies and policies that will reduce casualties within this majority are more useful than those confined to crime.
