    Number of physicians in the US = 700,000
    Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year = 120,000
    Accidental deaths per physician = 0.171 (source: US Dept. of Health & Human Services)

    Number of gun owners in the US = 80,000,000
    Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) = 1500
    Accidental deaths per gun owner = 0.0000188 (source: US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms)

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

    Your next Dr.s appintment is when??????????
