Americans worry more about gun violence than losing their jobs

The Kaiser Family Foundation asked adults how much they worry about a certain situations, ranging from their ability to afford health care to the possibility of being a victim of a terrorist attack.

It found, in a new poll out Wednesday, that Americans worry more about being a victim of gun violence than they do about losing a job or being unable to pay their mortgage.

The poll also breaks down those who worry about gun violence by demographics. Hispanics are the most likely to be personally worried about gun violence, followed by African Americans and then those who have a household income below $40,000. Who is least likely to be worried about gun violence? Those who live in a gun-owning household.
