# Doctors vs Guns: Statistics Don’t Lie

Now let’s get really controversial.  Which is more dangerous — your doctor or your gun?

Let’s start off with two statistics from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

• Statistic Number One:  There are about 700 thousand doctors in the United States.

• Statistic Number Two: 120 thousand accidental deaths are caused by physicians per year.

When we apply a little math, we come up with an average of 0.171 accidental deaths per physician.

Now, let’s consider two other facts, this time from the FBI:

• Statistic Number Three:  There are 80 million gun owners in the United States.
• Statistic Number Four:  The number of accidental gun deaths per year — all ages included — is 1,500.

When we whip out our calculator we find an average of 0.0000188 accidental deaths per gun owner.

Conclusion:  Statistics show doctors are about nine thousand times more dangerous than gun owners.  Or to put it another way — guns don’t kill people, doctors do.

Well, not everyone has a gun, but nearly everybody has at least one doctor.  Here’s the hard pill to swallow — you are over nine thousand times more likely to be killed by a doctor than by a gun owner.  Pass it on.

But what kills more people, abusing prescription drugs or using them as prescribed?
