Doctors and Guns

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Doctors

    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. of A. 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 .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.

    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!

    Out of concern for the public, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!
