Default Doctors vs. Guns

Doctors vs. Gun Owners

Doctors:
(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.

Guns:
(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.

So the average doctor accidently kills one person every 6 years? This data sounds fishy.

Physicians kill people.
Guns do not kill people.
People kill people.
People kill people with guns, forks, wooden stakes, and other weapons.

this thread is no longer valid.

Probably Dr Kevorkian skewed the results.
