I'm not against having weapons but let's not act like they're saviors to any ******* that tries to get you.
With that logic we should stop arresting drunk drivers because no matter what you do there is a possibility a drunk driver can still kill you. You are right there are times when no matter what you do someone can still kill you, but the point is you should have the right to have every option at your disposal.

(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

Health and Human Services.


Now think about this:

(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.'


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!!!


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