Number of physicians in the U.S. = 700,000 Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year = 120,000 Accidental deaths per physician = 0.171 (U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services)
Number of gun owners in the US = 80,000,000 Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) 1,500 Accidental deaths per gun owner = 0.0000188
Therefore, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
" Not everyone has a gun, but everyone has at least one doctor."
