Yes, that is 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 <0.000188.
Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more likely than gun owners to kill someone.
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! This statistic does not even include those that the President warned us about, who run around ripping out tonsils and whacking feet just to make a quick buck.
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 last thing we need is for all those one-footed people with missing tonsils to run up against one of these "assault doctors" and end up dead...
Not to mention that I haven't even begun to handle the troublesome statistics involving cars driven by politicians.
