Number of physicians in the U.S.: 700,000
Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year: 120,000
Accidental deaths per physician: 0.171
Number of gun owners in the U.S.: 80,000,000
Number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups): 1,500

Therefore, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
Now, doesn’t that make you feel safe?
