On the other hand, doctors have killed more people than firearms. Perhaps we can conclude that doctors are a real danger to society. We can also conclude that more people die in hospitals than in the home and therefore hospitals are a danger to society. Any data set can be tortured and misapplied to reached a pre-determined conclusion ("self fullfilling prophecy"). In my years of research I have seen several colleagues and students abuse statistics in this way. Nice try guys but most rational thinking adults see through the political agenda.
