More than half of Americans have dealt with gun violence in their personal lives
A majority of Americans have felt the long reach of the nation's gun violence epidemic in one way or another.
That's one of the takeaways from a national poll released on Tuesday by KFF, a nonprofit that focuses on health care research.
Specifically, the poll found about one in five people report having a family member who was fatally shot. The same share say they have been threatened with a gun. One in six said they have personally witnessed a shooting.
