    this was handed out at my hopsital...***antartican..forgive me for the last!!!*** :D
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Subject: think about this


    (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 Human
    Services.


    Now think about this:

    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 .000188.

    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.

    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, I have
    withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock
    would cause people to panic and seek medical attention

    The guns stats are correct... but they are leaving out one little point...

    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 .000188.

    Statistics courtesy of FBI

    __________________________________

    approx. 80,000,000 gun owners.

    approx. 1,500 deaths per year.

    (the one they left out)
    approx. 1,500 of these 80,000,000 people are complete idiots. :lmao:

    and last but not least... approx. .000188 people didn't get to their trigger fast enough. ;)

    Speaking of which.... I need to go clean out my guns....

    you know what i think is funny about this?? people the world over and even some in america are gonna think, man i dont own a gun...

    but in the south of the u s of a, we go nowhere with out a gun in the truck, one in the back behind a seat.. one under the seat, the one strapped to your boot leg...
    i mean, sheeze... we probably have 6 or 7 guns in our house right now...

    its not uncommon that if you go to aneighbors house at night and knock on the door, they will come to the door with a shot gun, and you say your name first, and say, put that thing away, and the other three that the kids and wife had trained on your drop as soon as your neighbor says, hey honey, is frank, and betsy, or whatever.....

    so most of those guns are all at only .5 of the worlds homes....dont you think????

    Just found this thread (nooo, I wasn't at lunch the whole time). Am considering starting an action for defamation and need to speak to your lawyer, missy. That Gere-guy. He'll need to file some briefs and if all goes well, maybe he can get me to drop my suit.

    (Hey, is he packing a gun TOO, or is he just happy to see me?)
