G u n s:

The number of accidental g u n deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500
The number of accidental deaths per g u n owner is .000188.

Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than g u n owners.
Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."
FACT: Not everyone has a g u n, but almost everyone has at least one doctor.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat immediately. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!
Note: Out of concern for the public at large, the statistics on lawyers have been withheld for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention
