The number of physicians in the U>S> is 700,000. Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year number 120,000. Accidental deaths per physician=0.171 (U.S. Dept. Health and Human Svs.) So:
1)The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80, 000, 000 (yes 80-million).
2)The number of accident gun deaths per year (all age groups): 1,500.
3)The number of accidental deaths per gun owner: .0000188.
4)Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
5)Fact: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor.

Apologies to our medical members! That's how people are mis-crunching numbers on the gun-grabber side, too.
