They should just impose some strict gun laws.

That'll solve everything.



Exactly!!!

Everyone always follows the law to the letter.

They should just pass draconian gun laws like Chicago or Detroit or California.

Those places are the safest cities in the country.


Baltimore has some of the toughest gun restrictions in the country.

So it's completely safe there now.

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.


(B) "Accidental" deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.


(C) "Accidental" deaths per physician is 0.171

Guns



(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million)


(B) The number of "accidental" gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.


(C) The number of "accidental" deaths per gun owner is .0000188



Statistics courtesy of FBI
_______________________________________________



So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

________________________________



FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT Almost everyone has at least one doctor. This means you are over 9,000 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as by a gun owner !!!

________________________________



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, We withheld the statistics on Lawyers

for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention.



Quoted for truth and accuracy!!!


You sir, are a flipping word Smith, good post!

Or, they could make murder illegal. I don't understand why the govt can't just pass some laws to stop people killing each other! Seems kind of simple.

Maybe the good citizens of B'More need to be educated on the law.

Oh thank heavens they finally came to their senses, because the laws making murdering others illegal weren't working.

They obviously just needed to make it illegaler.

Now they will be safe finally.

That murder and violent crime are nosediving. Its the summer of love, metaphorically. Except in Baltimore where there is a whole cornucopia of reasons for increased violence.

But the stats show that America is falling in love with each other all over again.

Lol
, I just spit out Kentucky bourbon.... Shakes fist, Monday at work, I'm not going to pet the rabbits now, see what kind of pain you just caused.

I don't need to hold them and stroke their ultra soft fur, or look at the cute little bastardizations they are.

OK, I'm still going to pet them, but I will be doing it begrudgingly.

See what you have done?

Statically you are a gazillion (yes thats right i made a new word) times more likely to have your life saved by a doctor rather than a gun owner . Well unless you are military or police , or a hostage . But you get my point . I think .

Yeah, if only we were talking about lives being saved instead of taken...this would find itself relevant.

Obviously that we are killing each other at record lev-. . .

wait, what?

Violent crimes are down?

naaaa. . . . say it ain't so!


SOooo,

It seems that big cities are magnets and full of people wanting to live a life of Government subsistence living, Government employees and gangs. They are also considered Democratic heartlands and so have high cost of living, high taxes and and strict gun control...

I can't see how all that is not the perfect recipe for a wonderful life.

More people are saved by guns then killed by them every year, but that doesn't matter to gunophobic person.

I just made up 2 new words this thread, illegaler and gunophobic, suck it Colbert, my truthiness is better than yours was.

One would hope that if someone has used statistics to show how doctors are more dangerous than gun owners another can point out that the stats are only showing half of the of the story . I guess that this doesnt suit ATSs pro gun agenda .

It could be the police are laying back and not policing the tough neighborhoods just to make a point. I would be curious if the majority of these killings are coming from black on black crime. If they are, than they're only giving credibility to the accusation there is more violent crime coming from the black community.

It sounds like a utopian paradise, it must be really nice in those places.

Maybe I should move out of the country, big city life sounds wonderful!!!!

Never hurts to show those does it.

This is the way I see it. (tinfoil hat time!)

Government has looked at the decrease in violence. They see a correlation between gun freedoms and low violence.

They don't like that.

They then create an atmosphere where violence will occur and when it does, they get more excited than a Viagra test subject.

This way, they can create more laws and more restrictions and more "need" for government.

I live 15 minutes from Portland, actually a pretty nice city, BUT it would suck to need to live there. I did spend 5 weeks down in San Diego, and once again, it looked like a place I would never want to live there 24/7. A big part is I can live in a huge house with land 15 minutes away, pay 25k less taxes per year and not have to deal with 100 stinks as you walk down the streets. For me to live in the city my quality of life would go way down, way down...

Only if it were a relevant argument that the average gun owner actually had surgical skill that didn't involve field dressing game.
