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.

As evidenced by our voting patterns, Americans are woefully guilty of what I like to call voluntary ignorance. Which is a bit disturbing in the 21st century. You odds of dying from a gun shot wound are around 1 in 8802. This is preceded by a number of better set of odds on dying including cancer (1 in 499), heart disease (1 in 388), and auto accidents (1 in 6585).
