The stats for this are a few years old but the ratios are probably still valid. Bearing in mind the issue of chronic underreportage of deaths caused by pharmaceuticals,  the ratios below should be viewed as extremely conservative. In other words, the reality of the situation is much worse. 

Number of physicians in the U.S. =
700,000

Accidental deaths caused by physicians/year
= 120,000 Ratio: .171

Number of gun owners in US =
80,000,000

Number of accidental gun deaths/year
= 1500 Ratio: .0000188

Conclusion: physicians are approximately 9000 times more dangerous than guns.
