Dr.s vs guns Informative - guns vs doctors

Review by tpebop on 2005-05-03
Just a little something to think about..
The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
Accidental deaths caused by physicians per year: 120,000
Accidental deaths per physician: 0.171. (Statistics courtesy of
U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services.)0

Now think about this..
The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's
80 million.)
The number of accidental gun deaths per year for all age groups
is 1,500.
The number of accidental gun deaths per gun owner is .000188.
Statistically, Doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous
than gun owners. Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do!"
DOCTOR. 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, I have withheld the statistics
on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek
medical attention.

But how many lives do guns save a year?
Posted by tpebop on 2005-05-03:
ask your local P.D. how many lives they have saved and if they coyld have done it without guns also think of all the people in this country that have used their firearm in self defense I would imagine the numbers are staggering

How many of the accidental shootings were by doctors? Huh… Makes you think.
Posted by LegalCollector on 2005-05-05:
95% percent of all statistics are made up. Ho hum.

All Medical Doctors and Veterinarians should be drugged tested once every 30 days. Not telling them when and call them 1 morning and to get tested.

People smuggler=Coyote(sl)=Tax/tx should be deported.
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-06:
No random means anytime. I said anytime in a 30 day period, every 30 days. That way they can't take something to get it out of their system or have time to shave. Try reading for once.

I don't smuggle anything. Why do you? My ancestors have been here longer then yours I bet. Any Native American blood in your ancestry?
Posted by Anonymous on 2005-05-06:
Yes there is and so what, tax. Stop disgracing your ancestors with your ignorance! Neanderthal.

ZZ you sound more like SIFFER everyday.
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-06:
Make sure you tell SIFFER you have some native in you - so he can start his racist remarks on you and your heritage.
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-06:
Do you ever eat any Native American foods? They have some good recipes. Maybe i'll post a few.
Posted by Anonymous on 2005-05-06:
Never ate any Native American food that I know of. You are the one always stereotyping and complaining about people that are from south of the border. I see the Siff knocking your relatives and that's it. Stop bringing them over here illegally.
Posted by Slimjim on 2005-05-06:
You don't like racist remarks either huh tex. Unless of course, it's your backnbiz nic making them. In which case you've made clear is okay by you.

Good Job!! I am keeping my guns safe. If I feel they need any kind of medical attention, then we will take care of them at home where they belong and where someone loves them!!! Great Info*thanks

Okay, tpebop. Whatever you say.
Posted by Anonymous on 2005-05-09:
Hey tax/tx, are these recipes from relatives or Google?
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-11:
From the reservations.
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-11:
I complain about illegal people who cross illegally into the USA, they are coming in from Mexico and Canada from all over the World. I don’t think taxpayers should have to pay for illegals; health care, their children’s bilingual Education, and have other benefit over US citizens while the US government can’t help their own people.

Hey this was suposed to be a comical post indicating the inherent saftey of guns not a fight fest
Posted by Anonymous on 2005-05-12:
Hey tax, stop being a "coyote" (people smuggler) that would help.
Posted by TXRoadTrip on 2005-05-12:
Texans know what COYOTE means and are in Texas, and we frown upon them. And the definition was for whom?

Yeah txzzz, and that explains all those people living in your wine cellar too.
