More than 30,000 people in the United States are killed every year by someone brandishing a gun.
Imagine if some chemical added to foods killed 30,000 Americans each year and we found out which chemical it was. Would we let the American Chemical Society's lobbyists in Washington have their way, or would be make a law to ban the chemical?
(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians
per year are
(C) Accidental deaths per physician

Health and Human Services.
Now think about this:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.
(Yes, that's 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths
per year, all age groups,
(C) The number of accidental deaths
per gun owner

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,
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!!!!!
You need to get your facts straight. There are about 8000 gun deaths per year. If you remove the gangbangers deaths from shooting each other that number drops way off. There are about 30,000 auto caused deaths per year.
you are wrong, there are approx. 30,000 gun deaths / year in the US. now, that number includes about 20k gun deaths due to suicide / year-which makes this a bt of a "loaded statistic", because those folks would do themselves in anyway.
We also need to outlaw subway trains. People are getting shoved in front of them all the time. The subways are EVIL!!!
While we are at it, let us outlaw kitchen knives and hammers and saws and power lawnmowers. They are all EVIL and kill people.
