"We've only gotten one gun so far, but we've gotten 60 over the last six months," Pfleger said at his South Side church. "We need to continue fighting for stricter gun laws and hold gun manufacturers responsible. At the same time, the faith community has to continually challenge our communities to get rid of the ones we already have out here."

Churchs have tax exempt status only because they are SUPPOSED TO BE nonpolitical. It would do Illinois and US coffers good to remove this "so-called church" its economic benefits, which by definition others must burden.

Here's a Rational thought......:o)

Physicians vs. Gun Owners

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.

(Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services)

Now think about this:


a. The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.

b. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is1,500.

c. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188. Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do.


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.)

Stay Safe..........don't get sick !
