    Watch where you point that! - By SHERYL UBELACKER The Canadian Press
    A report published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that about 37,000 people sought treatment in U.S. hospital emergency rooms in 2005 after getting shot or shooting themselves in the hands, arms, legs, head or eyes with nail-guns.

    About 40 per cent (14,800) of those treated were consumers, while the remainder were professional carpenters or other construction workers. About 95 per cent were men.
