4 in 10

4 in 10 Americans think it’s at least somewhat likely they will be a victim of gun violence in the next five years. That’s one of several takeaways in a new survey from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, The Associated Press, and NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, which surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,373 Americans.

Thus 50 guns per nut.

I would also bet that the adults that are most likely to be a victim of gun violence are probably less chickenshit.

"somewhat likely" means to me better than 50/50 chances. No way do I think that I will be that likely to get shot even though I don't like living in a country where that's even an issue.
