(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!

LR: Doc, it hurts when I press here..,it hurts when I press hurts when I press here and it hurts when I press here. Everywhere I press, it hurts.

You have a broken finger...QUIT PRESSING!

Joe, when dad goes psycho and does a murder/suicide on the family is that considered accidental?

When the bangers in Roxbury bulk ship a bunch of firearms from Georgia, Virginia or some other southern hellhole and start gunning each other down, are those deaths accidental?

Joe said...

Ducky: Is that a response to the post?

Is it supposed to be funny?

Is it sardonic?

What in the world are you talking about?

I think you must be drunk...right?

Joe said...

Ducky: If you can't explain your comment, and relate it to the post or humor, I'm just going to delete it.

You have 'till 10:00 PM today.

Joe, whenever you say the “g” word to Ducky, he immediately wets his pants and goes off on one of these tangents that make no sense to anyone who is not a leftist retard. You see, typical of leftist retards, Ducky cannot understand that there is a difference between "legal” and “responsible" gun ownership, and the hoodlums he wants to support through welfare and clean needle exchange programs who get their firearms illegally.

Ducky's here said...

Here goes Joe, you mention "accidental" gun deaths which is a small subset of gun deaths. So once again I have to point out your lousy logic.

Now the deal is, the more guns, the more likely they get used and living in an armed camp, no matter how "scared of the dark" you are does not make you safer.

Your statistic is pointless and trivializes an important issue. Okay, Joe?

Kiss my ass, mustang. The crew and I have a .50 Barrett lockered in Maine. We say not only does it stop you from getting inside the perimeter, it stops your vehicle.

Ducky: "Your statistic is pointless and trivializes an important issue. Okay, Joe?"

If I understand you correctly, it is a bad thing to use humor to address "an important issue."

Well that just proves what an illiterate fool you are.

Humor has been used to make valid points since before you were a glint in your unfortunate parents' eyes.

Somebody should have told the Smothers Brothers and SNL.

With or without some imagined offense against whomever you thought should be offended, the piece was humorous.

I didn't write it, it was sent to me...and it was funny.

Did you get that?


LR got it. Mustang got it. WHT got it.

Of all of my commenters, only you didn't get it.

Wonder what that proves????

What is WRONG with you?

Are you really as shallow as your remarks make you look?

You know what? I think you are.

Prove me wrong.
